    Codec for Windows xp to allow WMP to play.MP4

    We have just come across a problem in that our windows xp machines will not allow the playing of .MP4's in windows media Player.

    Can someone recommend a codec in MSI format that works please?

    Thanks in advance

    The only mpeg decoder that I can find in .MSI is this one:

    Webpage:
    http://sourceforge.net/projects/gplmpgdec/

    Download:
    Download GPL MPEG-1/2 DirectShow Decoder Filter from SourceForge.net

    Personally, I'd be inclined to wrap K-Lite to an MSI, or use the silent installer (Silent install guide for K-Lite Codec Pack) if possible, as you'll find the performance far exceeds that of the decoder above.
