Default Video files..

So I spent the last 6 days downloading 5 GB worth of anime...but then to my findings..after all this time...I found out it needs MKV and OGM codec's...now I don't have them and don't know how to install them. If ANYONE could help me out with this, you will be given God title of Codec installation.

download the full pack and it make Wmp play almost as many files as Wm classic. a mkv file has better quality than anything else out there that is the same size. it looks like an uncompressed large AVI file

when you install it, open the file with WMP. play the file. it will ask you "do you want WMPlayer to try to play the unrecognize file file" click yes and and check the "do not show this again". winamp can also play the file too, now
