If you have Windows Vista installed on your computer and have had problems playing some multimedia files downloaded from the Internet, it may be necessary for you to install a pack like Vista Codec Package, thanks to which there will be no audio and video files that can't be played.
Once installed we will be able to play XVID, RMVB, OGM, OGV, OGG, MKV, M4B, FLV, EVO, FLAC, APE, MKA, DIVX, OFR, MPC and AMR files directly from Windows Media Player.
The multimedia codecs necessary for Windows Vista
The pack includes a configuration application, from which it will be very easy to manage those drivers that we want to use, manage the audio output or specify the kind of files to be played by means of the codecs that are part of the package.
Furthermore, Vista Codec Package offers us the possibility to eliminate any prior codec installation, so that they don't create conflicts between one another.
If you still don't have a codec pack installed on Windows Vista and you are looking for one that is complete and simple to install, this may be one of the best alternatives that you have available.
