Play downloaded movies and music in any media player with this codec pack

A review of VLC Codec Pack by Sven Sørensen

VLC Codec Pack is a fully-featured Windows codec pack which provides many of the video codecs which already come installed with VLC Media Player. Therefore you're giving other media players on your PC the same ability to playback media sans VLC Media Player.

This installation includes many of the most common codecs, available for free, like ffdshow, XviD, DivX and many others. You also get to install audio codecs providing the ability to use Lame MP3, among others.

Certainly a helpful thing to install, especially if you have a fresh installation of Windows up and running.
