What are you talking about…
K-Lite Codec Pack Full is a complete collection of codecs and related tools for watching and listening to all your movies, videos and music on your computer. Great especially for those who love downloading files from the internet via P2P sharers , because today many data has different extensions (WMV, AVI, MPEG, MP4, MP2 etc.) and without codecs, players can't run them.
But after all, what are codecs?
Codecs are signal encoders / decoders to make audio and video files playable. Many of them do not come preinstalled with the operating system, requiring user effort to find them on the Internet, as each codec is available separately from developers.
However, K-Lite Codec Pack Full strives to bring together in a single package all the essential codecs to play from the most popular formats to a few rare ones. In short, it's a user-friendly solution for anyone who wants to play favorite media files and doesn't want to suffer from problematic searches or installations.
The program has some advantages compared to other codec packages: it is always up to date, easy to install - that means you can select the components you want to install - and has no codec conflicts. To top it off, K-Lite Codec Pack Full is free of red tape and third party software, so it is clean and does not cause headaches.
Features that make a difference:
- Software is constantly updated with new codecs;
- At installation, each component can be selected separately;
- Lets you choose profiles to add filters to your needs;
- The uninstaller removes all files from the package, including records;
- All added codecs are tested for no conflicts and errors;
