Where to get video codecs?

Hi Experts,

I haven't had any response to an earlier question I posted, and I think it might be in part because I put too much info (see http://tinyurl.com/5vu338c for details).  So I thought I'd try to break out part of the earlier question into this separate post:

I would like to use the Windows Media Video 9 Screen Codec (MSS2) for one of my projects (see http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd464602(v=vs.85).aspx).  However, I've downloaded both the Windows Media Encoder and the new Microsoft Expression Encoder 4, and neither of these products has installed the MSS2 encoder on my system.  When I look at Windows Media Player / Help / About Windows Media Player / Technical Support Information I can see that only the decoder is installed.  Can anyone tell me where to get the MSS2 encoder?

Alternatively, I thought I could try the MPG4 encoder, but I also couldn't find out where to download it.  Is this available as a free download somewhere?  If not, is there a reputable site that sells this and other encoders?

Thanks for any help.

Regards,
Kevin
