Windows 7 Codec Support

In addition to the codecs supported by previous versions, Windows 7 supports an impressive list of new codecs and media containers out of the box.

New containers:
  1. MP4
  2. MOV
  3. 3GP
  4. AVCHD
  5. ADTS
  6. M4A
  7. WTV (new Windows Media based format for PVR based recordings)

New codecs:

  1. H.264
  2. MPEG4-SP
  3. DivX
  4. Xvid
  5. MJPEG
  6. DV
  7. AAC-LC (regular AAC)
  8. LPCM
  9. AAC-HE

You can get all these codecs and more with the K-Lite Codec Pack, however, this is the 32-bit version. The 64-bit version of K-Lite doesn't offer many codecs at all.

Now, if Microsoft can just add support for the Matroska file format, we'll be all set.
