@Greg

thanks for your replay but i googled "dxva_sig.txt" & none of the solutions worked plus can't find the "DXVA hardware acceleration for Windows Media" option in my graphic card

sorry to bother you but i tried to solve it for 5 hours & couldn't solve it so do you know any other way to solve this problem?

note that this is the 1st time this happened & i'v been using this codec pack for over a year

other note i have nvidia 6600LE graphic card & i have a wmp9 in my system (yup i tried wmp10 & 11 & still the same problem even after update)

hope you can help

thanks in advance & sorry to bother

@engru

That dxva_sig.txt file is created by the Windows Media codecs from Microsoft. Disable DXVA hardware acceleration for Windows Media in your graphics card control panel.

Just google "dxva_sig.txt" for more info.

this pack is really one of the best out there

tho i'm having a problem in the recent update, when i try to open a .wmv video with MPclassic the video slows down really bad & a text file shows up with the name "dxva_sig" & in the text file there is only the letter "B" & it runs also slow with the wmplayer but the text file doesn't show up & it runs normal with the VLC player tho there is no sound so anyone knows what the problem? since this is the 1st time i encounter a problem with this codec pack

thanks in advance

note: i'm sure there is no virus in my system & all the video format works fine (even the HD & FHD ones) except for the .wmv

This pack works perfectly fine on a clean Windows install. So either you did something wrong, or more likely, your problems are caused by buggy graphics drivers.

This masterpiece does something which is rarely seen nowadays: IT CAN F**K UP A FRESH WinXP INSTALL completely just by installing it using the default settings.
"Clean uninstall including registry cleanup is a major feature" they say. However after uninstalling this "state of the art" pack and installing my favourite ACE MEGA CODECS Pack 6.03 (which is heavily outdated that's why I tried to find a replacement) surprise: ACE is not working as well... This m*f* screw up something.

gotta go to reinstall windows again...

That is a false positive detection of AVG. It probably deleted the uninstaller.

maybe you should go back and actually read my thread going through my problems. It's ffdshow that keeps causing problems, not codecs. Thanks for 'trying' though.

Playback of WMV files is done purely with codecs from Microsoft.

I've tried reinstalling it again, double-checking to make sure in the last phase I checked "reset to default settings" and that problem seemed to go away.

Before I did that though, I disabled the ffdshow directshow decoders and that also fixed the problems. We were back to square 1, folks. Also, I couldn't play .flv files before this fresh reinstall.

It's friggin happening again! 3.6.5 was working perfectly fine, but as soon as I changed to 3.7.0, I tried to open an .wmv file and there was no sound, and as soon as I stopped playing the video, my whole pc froze up and I had to manually turn it off, and turn it on again a few minutes later.

@Russell

K-Lite is the best codec pack available. It will most likely solve your problems.

If you still can not play the file after installing the pack, then open your file in the included GSpot tool. That can tell you what kind of audio in inside your AVI file.

I have just installed k-lite. Media Player Classic closes before I can select a file and to be completely honest, I have no idea how to use it! I want to be able to play movies that my media player says it's unable to play due as it does not support the file or codec. Can someone help me please?

Check if the region of your DVD drive is configured correctly. If the region of the drive does not match that of the DVD that you want to play, then it will result in errors.

Hey there. Just installed K-lite Codec 3.6.5 Standard on my IBM ThinkPad laptop, but when I try to play a DVD, Windows Media Player keeps saying there's an error:

WMP has encountered a problem and needs to close

I tried playing the DVD via Media Player Classic and got a similar error.

Clicking on the PCFriendly icon for the DVD gives this error message:

Unknown or unsupported DVD decoder encountered

I tried uninstalling then reinstalling K-Lite but got the same messages. Without K-Lite I get the message that a compatible DVD decoder hasn't been installed on the computer. Anyone have any ideas?

The thing with the dual audio problem is that it did not present itself prior to the problems with the video decoder. Before, I could easily switch between the english and japanese audio.

Another interesting point of this problem was that after really tweaking media player classic I was able to get it to play only one audio track, it would only play the japanese audio. Yet the English was the default track.

There are several easy solutions for the dual audio problem that you have. You can find them in the FAQ.

@Greg:

All I can say is that if I had ffdshow video decoder enabled at all with version 3.6.2, it would eventually freeze up my pc.

The interesting part, I guess, is it would happen a couple of seconds after I press stop on media player classic.

I tried a clean uninstall and reinstall, and went to configure and just clicked "reset to recommended settings" and that seemed to fix the problem. Although since I had done very little to cause the problem in the first place, and undoing everything I thought I had tweaked did not seem to help, it's iffy why this worked.

I just installed 3.6.5, I'll see how things turn out.

I also had a problem with the audio decoder, though it wasn't debilitating. I had some anime .avi files with dual english/japanese audio. Suddenly after going from 3.5.4 to 3.6.2, playing these movies would bring up two instances of ffdshow audio, along with two instances of the winamp dsp plugin I was using (DFX), and played both audio streams simultaneously.

Opening the decoder and setting directshow to allow only one instance of ffdshow audio didn't help.

Then .flv files would have no sound.

I eventually just went back to 3.5.4

@Lauren

Washed out colors can usually be solved by changing the video renderer in your player.

Sometimes it can also help to reset the Overlay control and/or color correction settings in your graphics card control panel. Wrong settings there can screw up colors.

NEED HELP PLEASE GUYS

Have had K lite for several months now and absolutely love it...but the other day I was cleaning out crap of the hard disk and I must have deleted something that K lite relies on to run properly.

I have avi's saved that used to display perfectly on my monitor however now they appear grey and washed out...like there is a grey filter over the movie. It is driving me up the wall, I unistalled and reinstalled K lite, but the problem is still there?

Any ideas? Your help is most appreciated.

I believe something is wrong with this software.

If I enable the same tweaks with the ffdshow video decoder that I was using with version 3.5.4, it freezes up my computer as soon as I stop playing the video. I have to manually restart the computer. It's doing something bad.

Used it since years with XP, very stable and comfortable , but version 3.57 crashed with Silent Hunter 4 1.4. I hab all the latest Nvidia/XP-patches, but the main menu of the game stayed black. I almost got nuts. In the game-forum I found a tread, where they recommended to uninstall K-Lite Codec pack as a last measure (http://forums.ubi .com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/6921019045/m/2021017016?r=2021017016#2021017016).
It helped immediately. Dunno why, but in case someone has the same problem...
