In case you have been wondering how Windows 7 can play many of your media files out-of-the-box, it is because Windows 7 now natively supports the most popular formats including H.264, Xvid, and DivX. But still, there are many other multimedia formats that Windows cannot play without the proper codec installed. To solve this problem, you can download a codec pack. A codec pack basically contains different codecs required to play certain media files so you don’t have to download them one-by-one.
This codec pack will automatically uninstall the old codecs installed and will install the new one. It is not necessary that you should have a codec pack like this one. If you usually do not come across media files that your system cannot play then you may ignore this but if you are a user who plays a plethora of media file types and do not want to download a media player for playing specific file types or to download additional codecs in future, this codec pack is best for you.
