    Ok, but which exact one are you trying to download and from where? There's hundreds of them hosted at thousands of sites.

    I gave a link to a common codec pack above, you may want to download that instead.

    Is that for the K-lite codec pack of the other one? Codec packs are generally for most media players.

    Yes, that's exactly what the K-Lite codec pack is for.
