J7N is an unknown quantity at this point

You can use FFDSHOW (a part of the CCCP pack) to decode video. The problem with the new codec pack was probably the fact that it includes Haali Media Splitter, which doesn't work well. Solution: trash the CCCP and install standalone FFDSHOW (

There is no need to install any DivX3 or 4, or 5 or 6 - whatever. FFDSHOW can decode all MPEG-4 video streams properly. You just have to have a proper media splitter for each container type. For Matroska files that would be Gabest's Matroska Splitter ( Sorry, I have no experience with MP4 files whatsoever. You have to look for a MP4 Splitter and try different ones, from Gabest ( or 3ivX. If Gabest's MP4 slitter doesn't seem to work, remove it and try the one by 3ivX.

I installed 3ivx and unstalled CCCP but was audio without video
I can only make a guess that the video was in H.264 format. FFDSHOW can decode it.
