    how do you remove codecs in xp???

    i want to remove all the codecs and reinstall because somewhere something messed up and i can't play the video on allot of the files i used to
    only the audio plays

    this way i can just download what codecs i need

    To remove codecs you must go under your "control panel" and choose "sound and audio devices"

    Under this option choose the tab "hardware".

    From here look for "audio codecs" and "video codecs". Choose properties.

    Just select the codecs you don't want and choose remove.
