I've ordered myself a nice HTPC which will be arriving tomorrow. I've got the latest Win 7 beta I plan on installing and I want to make sure I get my codecs right on the first try, as I've found that some codec packs can be very difficult to uninstall.
Presently on my XP install I'm using CCC + MPC. It works, but I always have trouble with WMV files; when opened with MPC or VLC, they are simply un-viewable. I have a serious suspicion it has something to do with CCC.
So, those of you that have a huge variety of video files, what codecs do you use on Windows 7 and which player have you found to be the best? Thanks!
