I am trying to do as clean of an install as possible vs. past uses where I downloaded everything and wanted to know what most people recommend as the best codecs are to have installed as well as what you set up in your configuration tool.

Any advice would be appreciated as I can not seem to find a place in any of the documentation that lists recommendations.

Have a great day,

Thanks!! That is exactly what I need. I already have the DVD( codecs from the trial as I saw a past post you had listed regarding your trial expiring but codecs still working.

With that in mind is it possible for me to save a copy of the codecs to another directory, uninstall the DVD9 and still use them? If so what files do I grab and does it matter where I put them? Do I need to re register them?

Yes, I am that particular about keep this install very clean and then I want to make an image for easy back should something go wrong :)
