Windows 98 (first edition): When I try to play web based video in Windows Media Player 7.1 i am prompted to install these codecs:
"Windows Media 9 Series Video Codec Cab, signed on 12-12-02 and distributed by Microsoft"
Having done that, the video runs quite well. No problems.
The funny thing is that I have already installed the stand-alone pack of codes which Microsoft offers on:
This should make me able to watch video without further installs.
But looking at the signed dates, I see that none of the codecs in the stand-alone pack are dated 12-12-02 (newer dates there).
Is that why I am prompted to install additional (older) codecs?
And secondly: Is it possible to download these older codecs so that I can install them on other older pc which have no connection to the internet.
I've been looking all over for codecs signed 12-12-02 - and I did find some, but they only fit Windowx XP and Windows 2000.
