I have VLC media, to play my video´s. It plays most movies, but i have a couple of films that it says i need some Codec´s, so first is it genuine, or not. If so where could i get them from, without any viruses. If i do need them, do i have to place them in the players folder, or anything. You can probably tell i´m not computer savi. thanks.

VLC doesn't need "extra" codecs...

Not genuine, please delete these movies!

I have come across the odd video which VLC won't play or has problems with, in which case I can usually get Windows MediaPlayer to run it. If neither of them can play any one video then I just dump it.


I use VLC as my default for audio and video and I have never been asked to acquire extra codecs.
