Codecs for Viewing Crash Tests Videos

Question
State WY
Description Text I just got a Windows 7 computer at work and have experienced problems viewing older crash test videos, most of which are taken with the high speed cameras. Sometimes the first few seconds will run, then they shut down.  After doing some research on the internet, I found that apparently Microsoft has felt that some codecs pose a potential security threat to their operating systems so they furnish less out of the box. I have noticed this on several different computer manufacturers. Do you have codecs that can run these older videos and if so, how do you install them?

Response
Response Attached is a zip file that contains two different files. The first executable file "iv5setup" is usually the one that needs to be installed. If you are still having problems after installing that one, then install the other executable file, "K-Lite_Codec_Pack_640_Full".
