This uses LAV filters 0.70.2.79 which does not solve the problem of the LAV SPLITTER (which was broken since 0.70.2.00-- manifested by glitching video problems with loading ordered chapters in MKVs and there is a media swich)

If you insist using it, go to LAV SPLITTER SETTINGS and uncheck the "Unload Matroska Segments" from external files..

The 7zip stuff is not nonsense. Right click on it select 7zip, extract, and low and behold no more junk in program..

This product installs 3rd party programs on your computer, without your consent.

There is no way to turn it off, there are no options and this nonsense about 7zip is exactly that, nonsense.

It is very poor form to install programs on a users computer without their consent.

I will actively post on the internet in the future in opposition of this software, whenever I see anyone asking about codecs.

You should know better, you are just creating a name for yourself that is coiled in hatred and irritation, and you are creating an army of individuals who will do nothing but deride your software at every opportunity. I am now going to email MajorGeeks asking them to remove your software from their site, as it is damaging their good reputation.

Bundle your rubbish software by all means, but give me the option to say to no.

Then I guess VideoHelp and other sites which distribute these installers should add a big fat link links to that thread. Otherwise, most people won't know about it.
Shark007 also need to add that information to their site, too. (Will they? I doubt about it!)
