This weekend I tried to watch a movie on my computer only to find out it wasn’t working. The reason it wasn’t working was because I did not have the proper Codec installed. So I started hunting around online for a solution. Microsoft recommends these, however I quickly discovered that none of them are free. And since I’m a bit of a freegan when it comes to software applications, I decided to do a bit of hunting around for a better solution. This led me to K-Lite Codec Pack which I downloaded and installed with minimal effort. To learn more about K-lite check out the Wikipedia article.
