It does not associates filetypes. With this package installed you will be able to use any media player (limited only by the players capabilities) to play DVD's, movies and video clips of any format. Streaming video (real and quicktime) is supported in web browsers. Visit the homepage to get a 64bit Addon which enables xvid, divx and DVD playback in Vista's MediaCenter.

    Best part is the free toolbars and spyware!
    Oh and this is the worst codec pack in existence.

    Clueless foreigners need to read the license agreemant.
    This hijacks your browser and will force install malware infested spyware depending on your locale.

    Well, while installing it *asked* me whether I wanted to install

    1. the ask toolbar
    2. weatherbug

    both of which I de-selected, and I got no junk on my system. Maybe the people blindly clicking on "accept" or "agree" to everything ought to be more careful while installing.

    I certainly don't look upon this kind of program behaviour as spyware.

    It does what it claims, only negative for me was, contrary to its' author's words, it changed all associations to open with media player upon opening the control panel for the first time.

    To the author: State clearly what you are doing! you state on your website "It does not install a player program and does not associate filetypes" - latter part of the assertion is no longer true.

    Three stars for the above.

    Installs unwanted spyware and on many systems even though you opt out, it installs anyway and their stuff is not easy to remove.
