    I am a network administrator needing to get 200 Plus computers using xp and wmp 11 the ability to view MP4’s for training purposes.

    I would like to have a .msi file to push the codec/or other solution out via AD and group policy.

    Do not want a freeware/shareware soltion so I am hoping one exists.

    I have tried the WM9Codes and get a windows media player 10 error.

    I have also tried wmp6codcs and it does not work either.

    Any solutions to this problem besides vlc or upgrading to win 7 machines (with wmp 12)

    How about using VLC instead?

    I’ve never done this, but thought it might be a good alternative especially as VLC has all codecs built-in. The distribution looks easy too.

    What codecs are the MP4’s using?

    What exactly does this mean Do not want a freeware/shareware soltion so I am hoping one exists. ??

    You could install the K-Lite codecs pack from here http://www.free-codecs.com/download/K_Lite_Codec_Pack.htm

    Yeah that’s what I am doing. Been using VLC for years now (personally) Just didn’t want to roll out into my fleet unless a WMP11 solution could be found.

    I went with FFDSHOW for the codecs and had very spotty results. I have just went with VLC as my solution.
