with other codec packs i have had lots of problems but as lordofla said klite streamlines only basic codects you need. and the mega pack gives you quicktime and realtime alternatives. I still have not had any problems with this codect pack as long as you unistall what you allready have first and i have installed it on allllot of comps. I dont think its bad advice and a easier fix for someone who doesnt know alot about codects. But everyone is entitled to there own opinon. i stick by my decision though.
