    most of the times that i d/l a movie it doesnt play the movie in WMP but i can play it in VLC
    when i try to play the movie in WMP it says Error Downloading Codec and then only the audio plays
    well im tryin to convert a avi to mpeg1/2 with WinAVi and its giving me an error that says make sure that the movie can be played in WMP

    so i was wondering what is the best codec for WMP

    Why do you wanna play it in WMP?

    WMP uses the same codecs as other players.

    My personal preference is either the full or the mega codec pack..
    That way you have everything in case later on down the track you need another codec its already installed
