The Win7codecs package which I have created does not change or
interfere with what Microsoft has going on concerning native codec
support in Windows Media Player 12 and Media Center.
DXVA accelerated H264 playback is provided by the codec package for all other capable players.
The latest release contains a new Settings Application which enables
the user to choose a different splitters 'on the fly' for specific
filetypes. The application will also allow you to choose from 10
different speaker configurations from 'same as input' and all the way

Codecs have been a problem for
most users at one time or another. This is because there has never been
an 'out of the box' working solution that the average computer user
could install and just have everything work properly from the
beginning. There are several decent codec package solutions out there,
but none of them did everything I wanted. I was always in need of a
tweak, adjustment, or even a re-installation just to get the codecs I
needed/wanted and most of the time, the file still didn't play
properly. I've never claimed to be a media guru. My media experience
prior to creating these packages was to double-click a file I
downloaded and hope that it played.
