Beware! Uses a "download manager" that accesses the internet. Allowing this behavior is VERY risky! In fact, using it can violate several federal compliance acts if used in settings subject to SOX, HIPAA, etc.

A legitimate software will give you the option of downloading the entire installation file.

Sorry, adding to my 'potential malware' list.

FInd the best compatibility with your system and improve the overall playback, i would expect the "real codec" to be included in the future. Nice attempt, keep it up!

Looks impressive as you install it, but doesn't deliver the goods, at least on my system. For instance, with the K-Lite pack, AAC+ streams will play in both WMP and MPC; but with this pack, they won't play in either, in fact WMP crashes.
