    I hope this is in the right place - its my first post :D I believe my codecs are all a mess because some of the mpg files that I have downloaded the sound playback is out of synch. I would like to uninstall them all and re-install up-to-date codecs.
    Firstly, I don't know how to uninstall them nor know what to look for also I have heard conflicting stories about which codes I should install.

    I hope all this makes sense :)

    Do a forum search for "codec". There was a very recent thread about this.

    The Nimo codec caused some OGG playback problems for me (in games and music). I recommend the k-lite codec pack instead.

    As I stated in the previous thread, download codecs as you need them.

    I agree with dreamliner. Codec packs have usually been troublesome for me in the past. Besides, there are numerous obscure codecs in these packs that I never end up using anyway.
