Did not give options to install only certain codecs. Seems to work so far. Lots of buttons to click through to actually install the program because of a bunch of extra crap like search bars they want you to download.

Pros
  • Seems to work for the purpose I downloaded it for. Which was to play my dvd's on the computer.
Cons
  • Lots of extra crap to say no I do not want that crap to before it goes on to actually installing the program.
