If you are using various types of AVI, video, audio and several other format files, you may have faced problems in which your player shows a message stating that you will have to download some codecs for this.

In those cases, the media player you have does not completely support the file you are trying to open, so it needs some extra files. A solution to all those problems is MUSK Codec Pack. Especially, the version 6.0 of MUSK Codec Pack covers most of the codecs like DivX, Xvid, RM, Cyberlink, VP7, QuickTime and many others. MUSK Codec Pack also has a feature to check the proxy updates.
