I don't want to install a codec pack as there is a lot of stuff that installs that I don't need. I need help with picking certain codecs.
I installed VLC media player to play most if not all video files without installing playback codecs.
I have quicktime and real alternative codec plugins instaled.
I have media player classic installed for any others that can't play even after I install needed codecs.
Now what other codecs do I need to play other video files. Mainly all kinds of MPEG files, XVID, DIVX, AVI etc. Also encoding codecs for those. I mainly use WINAVI to convert files to dvd format. Also sometimes use NERO to make custom dvd's.
That is about it, no fancy stuff. No playing with subtitles or audio files inside a video file. Maybe that can give a better understanding to help me pick only the codecs I need.
