Default Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition x64 and Video/Sound Codecs...

I'm running Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition x64. With so many Video and sound codecs to choose from which is the best and which are the ones I should live without?

NVIDIA Pure Video DVD Codec? DivX Pro v6.5.1? XviD? Vista already has the built in Media Center for playing DVD'S. Are their any x64 codecs out for Video and sound? What would all of you suggest?

Yes, but is this suggested software premium quality? because sometimes free isn't always good. Any final suggestions on my comment?

I really like the Pure Video decoder for watching dvds but last time I checked it didn't work quite right in Vista.

ffdshow CANNOT do everything. You need also AC3 filter, Haali Media Splitter, QuickTime, RealMedia, etc. The "Vista Codec" is a very clean package with no unneeded parts.
