    Was wondering if there where any special 64 bit codecs you had to get to play
    certain audio files and video files, because I just installed divx codec and
    it still wont play my divx videos.

    You don't need 64 bit decoders, actually, because WMP is still 32 bit and
    needs 32 bit video/audio decoders.
    Just install ffdshow (

    FFDSHOW is a DirectShow decoding filter for decompressing DivX, XviD, WMV,
    MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 movies. It uses libavcodec from ffmpeg project for video
    decompression, postprocessing code from mplayer to enhance visual quality of
    low bitrate movies, and is based on original DirectShow filter from XviD,
    which is GPL'ed educational implementation of MPEG4 encoder

    It is freeware and will allow you to see and hear every file compressed with
    almost every known codec.

    Speaking of decoders I would highly recommend the freeware alternatives for
    Quicktime and Realmedia formats.
    They will install the decoders as well as the freeware lightweight "Media
    Player Classic".

    All 32 bit working flawlessly on x64 platform.

    Yes, RAM really isnt the promblem with the machine we are using x64 on really
    its an awesome OS from Microsoft very stable and very fast. Figured out that
    Nero 7 messed up the audio/video codecs on the machine.

    Nero 6.6 seems to work just fine though.
