Just to let you know, that not only MA uses Indeo.
Most of the modern game use this particular codec, so I'd recommend everyone to have it. Don't blame MA.

is your version of windows updated? I do not know for sure but since most games use the codec, microsoft probably included it in an update. Which would explain why some people have to d/l it and some do not. *shrug*

With the September 2002 update to Windows XP (known as Service Pack 1), Microsoft suspended distribution of the Indeo codecs as a base part of its operating system. This only affects users with new PCs that are shipping with Windows XP Service Pack 1, or clean installs of Windows XP SP1 on an older system. Unfortunately, a number of game and multimedia titles require Indeo to be installed on the OS in order to function.
