K-Lite Mega Codec Pack (Multimedia Monday)

Have you ever opened up a video file only to get an error that it cannot be played. Or maybe you can at least hear the audio but see a blank screen.

Well, in all probability you have the required codecs missing. Short for compressor/decompressor, a codec is any technology for compressing and decompressing data.

There are several codec packs available, which not only install the basic codecs but also a wide variety of useful multimedia software.

One of my favorite with I have been using for several years now is the K-Lite Mega Codec Pack.

K-Lite Codec Pack is a collection of codecs, DirectShow filters and tools. Codecs and DirectShow filters are needed for encoding and decoding (playing) audio and video formats. 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 audio and video formats and even some rare formats.

The following is included in the K-Lite Mega Codec Pack:

  • Player
  • ffdshow
  • DirectShow video decoding filters
  • DirectShow audio decoding filters
  • DirectShow audio parsers
  • DirectShow source filters
  • DirectShow subtitle filter
  • VFW video codecs
  • ACM audio codecs
  • Real Alternative
  • Tools
