You dont need codecs! Getting codecs is the old fashioned way to do things hehe.

Get the future, get VLC Media Player .

Been using it for over two years now, never had to download a single codec (of course it can play proprietary formats like Quicktime and Realmedia - but you cant get codecs for them anyway), never had it crash or refuse to play something and it has a tiny memory footprint.

Will play pretty much anything, so long as its not proprietry.

sounds good that matty, might try it, if all else fails theres a number of em - ace mega codecs pack or kazaa lite codec pack - both are good, but I wouldn't recommend installing both at the same time (go for the ace one)

I have both installed & more cas I do a lot of video and music work, so need to have codecs for numerous programs, not just players

???

The only formats you cant run with VLC are propritery formats, that are copyrighted to individual companies. (Real, Indeo, AMR etc).

VLC will run just about every other format under the sun.
