Hello, I am using Windows Media Player and I am unable to play MP4 and FLV video files without a special codec pack.  Also, I am unable to download FLV video files (such as from YouTube) using RealPlayer Downloader without a special codec pack as well.

 

Can anyone recommend a good codec pack and secure download location to resolve this problem?  Thanks for any help!

Perhaps it would help if I offered more specifications.  I am using Windows Media Player 11, RealPlayer 16.0.3.51, and a Windows XP operating system.

I got it awhile back for movie watching and love it, it opens a ton of other stuff.
