Hi. Can I suggesterate this for the video codec zone? http://www.cccp-project.net/

Combined Community Codec Pack. I don't actually use this, I have VLC. But if I did need a codec pack I'd use this.

Just thinking about getting this stickied, jbloggs you might need to contact the dons directly to get it done. The chances of a don seeing this thread and stickying it for us are quite small.

Get in touch with them and ask for it to be stickied if possible and show them to this thread so they can see the demand for its stickiness.
