  • You don't need any codec packs to play videos with VLC Media Player. 
    It can act as a server and send streams through the network, with optional support for audio and video transcoding.

  • To install a windows media playe mp4 codec, I got two methods, one is obtaining the Official Codec Package from Microsoft, the other is using the K-Lite Mega Codec Pack.

    Method 1: Obtain the Official Codec Package from Microsoft
    1. go to www.microsoft.com, Downloads & Trials, then the Download Center.
    2. In the search box where it says “Search All Download Center” type in “codec” and press Enter.
    3. This will open up approximately 17 results. Select “Codec Installation Package for Windows Media Player 7.1 or later.” This codec package supports the current Windows Media Player 10 and 11.
    4. Note that a validation as a customer running a genuine version of Microsoft Windows is necessary.
    5. Validate and the files should be ready for download.
    6. Once the .exe file is downloaded, double click it to run it.
    7. If you are unfamiliar with the settings, just click “Next” and install the basic setup.

    Method 2: Usethe K-Lite Mega Codec Pack

    1. Download K-Lite Mega Codec Pack from brothersoft: http://www.brothersoft.com/k-lite-mega-codec-pack-61501.html
    2. Once the download is finished, double click to run the .exe file.
    3. For non-experts, it is highly recommended to just install the recommended setup by clicking “Next.”
