The Vista Codec Package does anything you’d expect from this kind of software and it completely solves any compatibility issues.
Designed for Windows Vista, as its name suggests, this codec pack makes you forget about the annoying process of finding the combination of codecs and filters needed to open your media files.
It is light and non-intrusive with your system. It does not install additional media players on your computer or associate filetypes.
Except for playing all those movies and music, from your computer or from external disk drives, Vista Codec Package also supports real and quicktime streaming in web browsers. The contents you want to view will be available to you immediately without making any extra adjustments.
The installation process is simple and flexible. If you have installed the whole pack and afterwards decided you don’t need all the codecs, you can easily remove any item without having to uninstall the whole package.
Moreover, you can manage the behavior of the codecs installed to your computer, if default settings do not meet your requirements.
Any potential conflicts are eliminated right from installation; Vista Codec Package removes any previously installed codec from your computer if it affects the functioning of the new codec pack.
The latest versions of the Vista Codec Package benefit from substantial changes, such as updates of all codecs and one installer for both 32/64bit codecs.
All things considered, Vista Codec Package is an application which meets a basic need of the average user: to play the most popular media file formats by installing a discreet, light codec on their computers.
- Update: as one visitor reported, the latest version of Vista Codec Package comes with Conduit Malware that attempts self-install.
