  29. Thank you. Didnt expect it to work, but it did in a way.

    VLC(mine is rather old, version 1.1.5 The Luggage) still shows error, but the content plays with the MPC that came along with the CCCP.

    It might as well work with the MPC alone, but still having an additional pack of codecs like the CCCP would come in handy.

  68. Hi Pankaj,

    Thanks for the fix. However, I uninstalled and re-installed VLC and it worked like a charm! I did download and install the CODECs as guided earlier, however that didn’t seem to fix the UNDF format error. A re-install helped and everything is good and pure again πŸ˜€
