Thanks Speed & Zap.

However after sniffing around I found this guy that thinks otherwise (below). Please read:

http://www.howtogeek.com/wiki/Why_Codec_Packs_Are_Bad

Then I ended up using "Pazera Free MP4 to AVI Converter" to convert the original file and kept everything else untouched.

Pazera is a no-install program that runs from a single directory root and leaves ABSOLUTELY NO GARBAGE behind (I mean "ABSOLUTELY" because "garbage" is mostly a subjective concept).

It's an interface to FFMpeg (http://www.ffmpeg.org/index.html), which comes "bundled" (same directory root). Gonna dig into the latter when I need to and have more time.
