    As was said, this is an old Codec pack and is liable to give you trouble. Uninstall it asap - with Revo advanced option.

    What codec is not working and what were you actually looking for.

    Agree. If you can avoid installing any kind of codec packs. You can use alternative players such as:


    1. Download VLC Media Player | Freedownloads.us.com
    2. KMPMedia


    They have their own built in codecs and will play all the popular video formats

    It does work. I was able to get it to play mkv files in WMP 12.

    My problem is that I really do want to stick with WMP 12 but I can't work out a way to shows srt files for my subs.

    Any ideas? I understand that you can do it with WMP 11 but that doesn't appear to work on Windows 8. I removed WMP 12 but it still didn't work.

    Looking forward to hearing your replies.

    Why don't you convert the files that don't work to another format.
