This is a must-have for anyone who plays video or audio on a regular basis, and especially for anyone who intends to convert between video or audio formats. K-Lite Codec Pack is a full set of codecs and filters for working with a wide range of video formats. It contains everything you need to play all of your video and audio files. It comes with a media player and some tools that come in handy when working with video. The codec list is very impressive for video, and also some audio codecs when the need arises. The installer allows you to set up the environment that works best for you.
For many people who have trouble playing some videos or music, this should solve all of those problems once and for all. PCs come with a very short list of built-in video codecs so you will often run into trouble playing movies you get from friends or on the Internet. This pack will correct the playback of any video or audio files that give you error messages. For the power user who wants more than just playback this pack also includes a good set of filters and tools such as codec tweak, mediainfo, graphstudio and bitrate calculator.
