Software Product Description

K-Lite Mega Codec Pack is a free software bundle which includes the K-Lite Codec Pack Full and Real Alternative. Codec is short for Compressor-Decompressor. Codecs are needed for encoding and decoding (playing) audio and video. The K-Lite Codec Pack is designed as a user-friendly solution for playing all your movie files. With the K-Lite Codec Pack you should be able to play all the popular movie formats and even some rare formats.

The K-Lite Codec Pack has a couple of major advantages compared to other codec packs:

  • It is updated frequently. So it is always up-to-date with the newest and/or best components.
  • All components have been carefully selected for specific purposes. It is not just a random bunch of stuff thrown together.
  • It is very user-friendly and easy to use.
  • Works great with Windows Media Player and Windows Media Center. But also with all other DirectShow players, such as Media Player Classic, BS.Player, ZoomPlayer, and others.
  • The installation is fully customizable, meaning that you are able to install just those components that you really want.
  • The pack has many options, which allows you to tweak it to your own specific needs and preferences.
  • Uninstallation removes everything that was installed by the pack. Including all registry keys. All changes are properly undone.
  • It is extremely easy to make a fully customized unattended installation with the integrated wizard.
  • It does not contain any codecs or filters that are known to be bad, buggy or unstable. In fact, the installer is able to detect and disable several known troublemakers.
  • It tries to avoid potential conflicts with other codecs installed on your computer. The installer is able to detect and remove over 100 different codec and filter packs.
  • The installer is able to detect broken codecs and filters on your system, and helps you to remove them.
  • It is a very complete package, containing everything you need to play your movies.
  • The pack has options to activate thumbnail generation in Windows Explorer for several popular video file formats, which are by default not thumbnailed in Explorer.

Pros:  Plays most multimedia files thrown on it. The integration of video capture from a web cam is a nice feature as well as the media info.

Cons:  This "mega" cocktail of codec sometimes give me a headache to configure properly but pleasurable when I got it right on my computer.

Other Thoughts:  There are releases that will make me mad because I cannot properly configure my 5.1 speaker system to function as 5.1 do. Release 7.8.0 is one of them. Actually release 7.7.0 is also the same and I uninstall it. Just downloaded this one to try again. It is now two releases in a row that the problem persist. I was thinking that this is only related to its support of older OS such as WinXP but in my Win7 I experience same problem. I'll stay out of this pack for a while.
