i found the so called Xvid codec at download.com, although i'm NOT sure if it's safe to use, i am full aware that Xvid has NO OFFICAL codec, so either i install k-lite or i go find other codecs, however k-lite has cause problems in the past and i will never to use it again, so is there anyother codec that's SAFE, REALIABLE, and won't conflict with other codec or cause problems?

i've heard of VLC player, although it didn't say if it supports Xvid...


thanks for the help.

It's best to install only those codecs you need and not the "packs" that have a number of codecs of varying quality.

I've used X-Vid on many machines with no problems.

VLC is a good open-source player that supports many media types, including X-Vid. It never caused me any problems and didn't conflict with other players. In fact, installing it allowed other players to play more formats due to the codecs it brought with it.
