It works great for those who know what they are doing. Like it said above, if you dont, then dont. You need to know what you already have installed and what you need to install before using, if you cant answer those questions then you have no business using this software in the first place.

Don't under-rate it just because you are ignorant... it is exactly what it says it is, a huge codec pack, 9 times out of 10 you are NOT going to be installing ALL of them...doh! and a note to the newbies who think they can just start encoding and sharing movies: PLEASE leave it to the pros, there is far too much crap out there thanks to you newbies thinking you are good at encoding just because you got it to work for you...

leave it to those that know how to actually give the best encoding for their byte,cpu and gpu cycle.

If you are one of the computer noobs, who click install without even reading anything, and expecting the computer to do the rest, this is simply not for you.

There are loads of codecs, but its up to you to decide which ones are necessary. If you do it wrong(or try to install it all) you will end up with a ruined OS, and a media player working with less file types than before.

If you dont know what you are doing, it has options like "minimalist" "just play" "lite edition" \"player edition\" in it. Either use them or dont even bother downloading it.

However if you have some experience how to configure this, it provides many extra encoding options for adobe premiere, 3ds max or similar programs. It doesnt cause any problems, I installed it 6 years ago, and still havent formatted. Since then, I installed it on another pc, 4 laptops and 2 notebooks, no problems at all.

This PACK deserves so much better rating than it gets, as the problem is not the codec pack, but people with zero knowledge trying to act like experienced users. This is a codec PACK, not a miracle worker.

I agree.You need good codec knowledge to use ACE mega codecs, unlike K-lite,It is not so user friendly. It is the Linux of codec packs.

After having this installed I had very few issues, or so I thought. After about 3 months of haveing certain avi files causing Windows Media Player to crash I uninstalled this codec pack and it worked fine. Ironic that a codec is suposed to help files work is messing them up.

My oppionion is that they lumped these codecs together without seeing which ones conflicted. If you're having BEC errors THIS IS THE PROBLEM.

It screwed up Explorer so it kept crashing with a Data Execution Prevention error, and Premiere wouldn't even load.

AVOID!


As an addendum to my previous comment, Windows Restore is your friend for getting rid of this codec pack. Boot into safe mode first.

Thank You greatly for this software it does what microsoft should of done in the first place when they made the media player and should of been included for free within it.
ONE WORD OF ADVICE FOR EVERONE !!!
make sure you dont install the one piece they say might cause problems on your system. they do warn u it can cause issues with various os's. Second install the pro version to get all the benifits this does. you dont neccessareilly have to install the bs player or media classic but u do need to put the finger prints everywhere and force the codecs into your media player.
Have fun All and enjoy for i know i have greatly :) and again MY DEEPEST THANKS

Great! Now I messed up my registry database with a half installed codec pack, and the uninstall script does of course not work.

What a piece of cow dung!!!

DON'T USE THIS UNLESS YOU HAVE MADE AN IMAGE OF YOUR HARD DRIVE SO THAT YOU CAN RESTORE YOUR SYSTEM *WHEN* THIS CRAP FAILS TO INSTALL THE FIRST TIME!!!

I have been using this codec pack for a while and I must say I'm very pleased with it, but I think it's time for an update...
A number of codecs are a bit old, and some of them don't quite go so well with 64bit processors...
Still, very good but I'd sure would like 6.04, or more...
Greetings!

I'm not going to complain about the actual codecs here - I understand many of them are out of date, but rather the fact that installing this almost completely wiped out my windows start menu. Where did it go? It left on some folders but completely removed a LOT of links.

if you don't need ENCODE videos, DO NOT INSTALL THIS CODECPACK. it contains lot of cool codecs, which are easy to find, but in such compilation? noone is telling you "install professional", there is also "player edition" or "minimalist" one - just use those and it works fine. btw: it uses quicktime alternative, which is in trouble with itunes and quicktime also.
trouble with hangin' explorer? just don't use it. it is fast, but using key-commanded total commander you will be much faster - and see thumbnails too :)))

To stop the error between iTunes and mega codec pack... So...
You have 2 options...
- First of all, you NEVER should install Ace Mega Codec Pack 6.03 (or CodecLite) after install iTunes (it's going to have a troubleshot between Mega Codec Pack and Quick Time Player)
- If your already done it, you need to...
1- Delete the folder and the components about Quick Time in System32 folder (C:\Windows\System32...)
2- Unistall Quick Time Player (don't unistall itunes)
3- Download iTunes installation file and repair it.

I'm not sure if it works 100%. I did it 2 last times in my computer and it works well until now.

Stay good...(sorry for my bad english)

Don't do it !

Sure they decode the videos well - albeit introducing a delay before playback quite often. They also prevent a number of programs from working - most obviously iTunes, Quicktime, and to a less dramatic extent Safari. They also prevent Bonjour from working properly, which in turn prevents Adobe products from installing properly, which in turn corrupts the MS Windows Installer routines. All in all quit a mess to sort out.

I have an older system devoted as a servaliance system and needed some codics to render some footage for court-room presentation after installing this software, the previously clean computer showed signes of problems, spybot found a Worm & Trogan, and several anti-Virus scanner's not just one found over 30 intances of virus's, maleware, spyware & adware and so called grey-ware on the computer, so much for a computer that was supposed to be a spy, HA! HA!, One of the programes installed with this bundle may even highjack your browser to an adult pr0n site so this software is not recommended for the KID's Computer at all.

Really...anyone posting problems with this should look at the date of the last update

21 Dec 2004

If you've downloaded this in 2008 and are having problems with your computer after then shame on you. we're talking a little over three years old and people are still d/l'ing this and using it.

It was fine in it's time. I had to do some tweaking with it back in 2005 but that's been the last time I've used it. It's been on my computer since but now that new Codecs are coming out I'm thinking of grabbing k-lite to replace it.

But ANYONE that uses this product in 2008 should be slapped across the face with a wet noodle for not noticing how old the product is. A/V doesn't sit still like this pack apparently has. Get a newer pack folks!!

I saw this codec pack and decided to try it, I have no problems viewing most any video out there. EXCEPT when its an embedded flv in some website embedded players. Such as tinypic. I made the mistake of letting it give "Browser support" to my firefox.

How do I remove the "Browser support" from Firefox?

Install this Codec Pack on an old computer that you don't care about. What happens to Itunes?!! What happens to QuickTime?!!What happens when you try to uninstall it?!! Unfortunately I only read the comments posted AFTER I installed it!Take my advice: don't subject your new desktop or laptop computer to such cruelty, stick to a more conventional codec pack such as K-Lite.

Itunes crashes with ace mega codecs pack because it interfears with quicktime. try this, uninstalll ace mega codecs pack, and when you reinstall it, search for the quicktime codec. Make sure its unchecked and click install. that should work.

Simply put, if you just want to watch movies, you don't need hundreds of rare codecs clogging up your system and polluting your registry. This is a piece of bloatware, a buggy one at that. You know something's wrong when explorer crashes trying to create thumbnails for a folder of videos. And you can't go back completely once you've installed since the 6.03 uninstaller isn't clean; the only way to make sure is to wipe and reinstall Windows. Best to stick with K-Lite Mega.

Ace maga codecs pack is an awful piece of software.The codecs work fine but they are not configured properly and wrong codecs are launchaed during playback.it crashes quicktime & itunes 7.x.To repair these progams go to the "system32" directory in your pc.Go to-tools-options and uncheck the box that says-"hide protected operating systam files."Ignore the windows warning message and click ok. Scroll down and delete the folder named "QuickTime." Reinstall quicktime and itunes.It Should work now.

Complete, yeah.

But it's so buggy. I had too many inrepairable errors upon installing this. And the fact that the codecs used are now TOO outdated for my taste.

This codec pack REALLY needs a serious update.

Really could be more user friendly. I installed everything and its nearly wrecked my system.

Part of it is my fault for installing everything but surely the creators should warn about potential conflicts and refuse to install rogue items.

iTunes nor quicktime works for me now.

Very disappointed.

I rated it 4, because it does have it's downsides.

PROS: THIS really defines the idea of a "codec pack". It's truly an all-in-one, totally complete package that installs all the needed codec to play almost all types of audio and video formats. With this installed, I would never need to download any codec again.

CONS: It's not really beginner-friendly, since with a lot of stuff thrown in, you might have a hard time installing the codecs that you would need. The dashboard system does ease up things a bit, but without codec knowledge and which conflicts to which, problems WILL occur (though I only used the default settings for ACE, and everything works fine)

Overall, for me, the pros outweigh the cons, and this codec pack sure is a keeper. After all, for all my media playing needs, I only needed Zoom Player WMV Pro (with some Media Player Classic to supplement it).

Oh, and for those who think that uninstalling ACE MCP is VERY difficult and messy, maybe you wanted to try running a registry cleaner and restarting the computer afterwards?

I notice that most of the negative comments and poor ratings given to this software are by people who also don't have a grasp of english spelling or grammar. These signs of idiocy or laziness clearly indicate the root of the 'problems' you folks have with this codec pack.

The only issue is with the Moonlight MPEG-2 filter which is not an MPEG-2 filter at all (PowerDVD or InterActual should be used instead, thankfully, these are distributed along wit the package anyway).

Provided you configure the Codecs you wish to use, set the merits in order of preference and don't overload your system with irrelevant dsp's etc. then you'll have no worries and find this package is very useful indeed.

Fair codec pack. Could use some work on the conflicts and perhaps come up with a more comprehensive and intuitive dashboard. It ruined my system twice before i figured out what the problem was, so buggy - yes, but worth the effort. Keep on developing, boys.
