Windows Media Format Runtime

This package installs all the codecs and runtimes that are required for playing the various Windows Media formats, such as .wmv and .wma files.

These codecs are normally already included with Windows as part of Windows Media Player. So you should normally only need this package if you have removed Windows Media Player or if you are using the special European N or Korean KN edition of Windows that does not include WMP.
