    hi there,

    I would like to tell you that you don't need to install anything to play sound files in general audio formats in Windows 8 retail preview (or any other version). But, to play video files such as .avi files, you might need to install proper codec for the file.

    Get out of all the hassle and download VLC MEDIA PLAYER from the provided link and play all media files totally effortlessly.

    VLC MEDIA PLAYER : http://www.filehippo.com/download_vlc/

    Best of luck..!!

    Hi,

    Windows 8 is made such an intelligent software that the complete version should contain all drivers needed to run across the board media files.

    You have drivers for most of the devices and codec for most of the formats that assists running the different format files without external assistance.

    However is some codecs are missing you always can download them and install to avart crisis.

    Third party media players are also an option.

    Thanks.

    Dear Friend,

    Window 8 is good OS that it provides many drivers and many things built in.

    you don't need to install any software for playing audio and video.

    but playing .avi and many extension like .divx are requires codec.

    Thank You!!!!
