it forces me to install updates i dont want
how can i make it install just the codecs

Anytime you install specific files, such is required to play multimedia files, these file may require the use of other files. As long as you are using the recommended repositories, the updates you get will be fine. It is recommended you read and follow this thread on the subject:

Multi-media and Restricted Format Installation Guide

Further, I have created a script that might be useful in checking your multimedia setup located here:

MMCHECK - Check Your Multimedia in 10 Steps - Script File, as proposed by RedDwarf

Message #18 contains the most recent version of mmcheck, so check it out.
