@jason

You should install both packs. The 64-bit one for thumbnailing in explorer. The 32-bit one for playback with MPC or WMP or any other player.

This pack works perfectly on my Win7 Ultimate x64. Everything runs smoothly and no lag or freeze. However, on 64-bit pc, the marks deducted is due to its inability to generate video thumbnails. cruel thing to it as a 32bit pack will never be able to do that in 64bit explorer.

*While the x64 version can generate thumbnails, its codecs are slow. And the videos appear like having low fps. I wonder why they can't make the x64 as good as x32. The x64 will be my immediate choice once they resolve this.

I have a suggestion/request: maybe you could change Wordpad from being the default application for opening help files. Notepad will do just fine by me.

Thank you.

OS: xpsp3 or vistasp2

While using mega codec pack v5.70 or v6.0 there is a problem to play the files with extension rm.

Btw,If we rename the .rm to .rmvb, then those files can be play normally.

and, if using Mega codec pack v4.85, everything is fine, without any rename.

Hope this problem can be solved in future release soon.

Thanks alotx.

I've been using the K-Lite Codec pack for a long time, and recently, with the release of version 6.0.4, I updated my laptop and desktop, both running Windows 7 64-bit. I only install the 32 bit version and had no problems until now.

When playing movies using Media Player Classic, the movie gets hiccups. They would freeze for a second, continue, freeze again, continue, and so on. I first thought it was a problem with my video card on the desktop (as I updated it first), but the same happens to my laptop. So I'll be downgrading to an earlier version for now.

K-Lite Mega Codec Pack 5.9.0

I am not sure that a virus is in question, but there is possibility that errors are caused by some incompatible Adobe flash plugins or I installed wrong combination of some codecs and filters. I'll check it out. I have installed system recently and AVG 9 antivirus that updates every day, so that is impossible that it is virus. I tested XP codec pack on my system and then I noticed that these errors don't occur, but I simply prefer this yours because it decodes almost all video and audio formats, and so I use it. Anyway, thanks for help.

Hi, im not very satisfied with the new codec pack. i just installed version 5.9.0 in my comp.
now i feel some kind of lag when opening my video, especially when i first start the movie.
the last version i installed was 5.4 , it work find, but since i check there is a newer one, i think it better, so i installed it. if i knew 5.9 version is gonna make lag when watching my movie, i think i'll stay with my 5.4 version. i know this k lite is free, and i cant argue that this is the best i can find on internet, but it will be nice if u can fix all the lag on your next version. hope that will come out soon. btw i installed with dxva, but after i noticed the lag, i disable it, but its not effect anything, it still lag. please release the next version as as soon as possible, thank you.

I noticed that these newer codecs pack don't work properly in Windows XP SP3. After installation of this codec pack everything seems to work fine, but after restart of my computer, and after I connect to Internet all goes wrong. Many of the codecs and filters simply don't work, and my Windows Media player 11, Windows Media Player Classic and similar players crash every time I try to open video files in flv, avi and mpg format. Does this mean that this codec pack updates itself every time I connect to Internet and causes system errors or it is simply not fully compatible with Windows XP SP. There are no other codecs and codec packs installed.

I still have a celeron 2.6 with 128 of video memory... and after installing versions 5.8.3 and 5.90 I'm noticing video lags in all .AVI files. Don't know if it's because of my "ancient machine" but, older versions of klite mega used to work great. I'm thinking of going back to version 5.1. Hope the issue may be solved. Thanks anyway.

very good codec pack

I found an audio problem during play linked files (chapter order) in mkv with FLAC audio

audio plays faster than video when linked file is started

for example OP/ED in an anime.

You can solve the flickering with this setting:
MPC Options -> Subtitles -> set "Number of subpictures to buffer ahead:" to 0.

Agreed!!!

Excellent is not a big enough word to describe the quality, versatility, and performance of this package!

I've been using it since 2001 (AMD Athlon 1200 MP) and it is ALWAYS a standard I point out to others by which they should compare.

I've recommended this pack to more people than I can remember!!!!

@writeyournameinhere
Install "Rad Game Tools Splitter" and you can play bink and smacker files.

VBR means variable bitrate. The properties tab will show the average.

Report your FLV problem on the Codec Guide forum with a sample. Or submit it to the MPC-HC developers.

@nod32
Report your problem to the ffdshow developers.

There are no developers present here on the free-codecs.com website. Please report your problems directly to the appropriate developers.

The updates just keep getting better!
Flawless performance.

Now to change the subject to those that are having issues with MPC/H
Keep in mind that those that are distributed with K-lite are beta versions.
The true latest stable build is:
v1.3.1249.0 / 27 august 2009
and can be downloaded here:
http://mpc-hc.sourceforge .net/History.html

MPCH is by far one of the best players, and is mine by choice. Yet I have had issues with versions released with K-lite.

Highly recommend using only the version from the official sourceforge site to reduce issues.

Have been using for years. Great Package!!
I found a problem in the recent versions up to current with getting an error "Incorrect BASS.DLL version (2.3 is required)" when playing *.aac files only (playback is OK once you dismiss the error message).
The library for bass_flac.dll is version 2.3 and needs to be updated to 2.4 to work with aac files.

Download : BASSFLAC 2.4
From : http://www.un4seen .com
File Need: bassflac.dll

Copy to : C:\Program Files\K-Lite Codec Pack\filters
Delete old : bass_flac.dll
Rename : bassflac.dll to bass_flac.dll

You don't need the DivX codec. Thumbnails work fine with ffdshow, which is what the codec pack uses by default.

I just found out that my problem was not caused by xvid codec in the package. It turn out to be DivX codec (maybe), when windows explorer try to preview avi files that contain DivX video in it. There is a 3 way to avoid the explorer.exe error that I found on the net.

1.regsvr32 /u shmedia.dll - avi file no longer have a thumbnails.
2.HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\\SystemFileAssociations\\.avi\\shellex\\PropertyHandler - Delete the "Default" value. (Backup first) - avi file have a thumbnail but disable summary in the properties. (You can use mediainfo)
3.Download and install DivX Free 5.2.1 - avi file have thumbnails and summary like normal.

Honestly, I don't like all that solution. I like my avi file to have a thumbnail preview and summary. But I don't like to have to download another codec package that have the same codec file just to solve one problem.

I hope in the next release K-lite Mega have the solution like in the DivX Free 5.2.1. K-lite Mega is my one and only choice. I don't want to use other.

Your problem can be solved by removing the Xvid codec that is (improperly) installed on your computer.
