Ever been disappointed when you weren’t able to play your favorite movie on your PC or listen to the latest album of your favorite artist?
That was the case with me when I tried to play a movie which was in .mkv(matroska video) format. I hadn’t had any introduction with this format before, and whatever movies that I watched were in my favorite – XviD Codec :) I tried WMP11 & GOM Player, they both failed to play this. GOM Player was showing some lines of some code in the title which made me think that the video file was corrupted. But just after a google, I found that the codec required to play that file isn’t available on the PC…
I didn’t want to install any other soft for playing that file & I was really happy with GOM Player in all aspects. Just after a bit more googling, I found a Codec pack which also included the .mkv codec that I wanted :D
It’s called the Windows Essencial Codec Pack, it has 99.99% of all the codecs that you would ever require and it comes with Media Player Classic with which you can play all the multimedia files on the go!
