ADVANCED Codecs for Windows 7 & 8
(formerly known as Windows 7 Codecs) is a codec pack developed by Vista Codec Package

The installer will automatically remove most other popular codec releases from your computer before installing this concise yet comprehensive windows media center setup package.
After installation completes you do need to right-click the installed Settings Application shortcut found on the menu,
Start Button\All Programs\Shark007 Codecs and choose 'Run as Administrator'.
When the program opens, click the button to [associate filetypes] and Windows Media Player and Media Center will instantly recognize all your files as playable.
It does not contain a media player and it does not associate file-types. With the Windows 7 codec package installed you will be able to use any media player, limited only by the players' capabilities, to play all movies and video clips.
Streaming video is supported in several formats in all popular web browsers. Users of the Windows 7 media center codecs have the ability to choose what is installed and where to install it using the public redistributable.

Compared to some other Codec packs, this is a miserable one. It used to be good, not any more. Seems made for idiots.
