I have just re-installed XP and for the last few years have never loaded a Codec Pack.
I have a few video clips (downlaoded) that will not play on my WMP or VideoLan.
I do not let WMP or XP connect to the net (for updates)
I suppose I need to install a codec pack.
Are the any disadvantages to installing a Codec pack ? Will it cause any problems with the standard ones that come with XP.
