So-called codecs are required to play multimedia sound or video files. How do you do it? Do you have any idea what a codec is? It is, after all, a programme that can encode or decode a digital data signal. When it comes to multimedia files, it’s the auxiliary software that a player can use to display video or play audio.
Normally, these codecs are built into the multimedia players themselves, but it’s likely that you won’t be able to open it correctly due to a lack of updates or that you’re trying to replicate a format that isn’t widely used. You can avoid this by using K-Lite Codec Pack, a full set of codecs, DirectShow filters, and tools that will allow you to play any audio-visual content on your PC, regardless of whether it is running Windows 7 or 10, 32 or 64 bits.
- It supports AVI, MP4, MKV, FLV, OGM, MOV, MPEG, MOV, HDMOV, TS, M2TS, and OGG as well as other video formats.
- Codec Tweak Tool allows you to customise all decoders.
- Assign formats to programmes in order to reproduce them.
- The user interface is friendly and easy to use.
- Updates are made often.
- Experts hand-picked the content.

Which is the superior option? VLC Player or MPC-HC?
It is true that only a few people can cough while using the VLC player. The Media Player included in the K-Lite kit is thought to be a worthy competitor to this one. It accomplishes this by providing a variety of features such as faster file loading, improved MKV file support, and more hardware acceleration options.
This is the complete package, but there are three other versions available:
- K-Lite Codec Basic: This package includes all you’ll need to play the most popular video files. It will meet the requirements of any user who works with popular video files.
- K-Lite Standard adds MPC player and other features to K-Lite Basic.
- K-Lite Mega is the most comprehensive and powerful version available. It includes all of the functionality of the Full version, plus VFW and ACM codecs for video encoding and editing.
So, which is the superior option? Is it better to go big or go home? Simple, the two are the most comprehensive, but you won’t get any of the Mega package’s features unless you plan to encode and edit footage.
