Another problem arises when using other codecs like ffdshow. Nokia Suite installs its own (*very* bad) codes.

You can get rid of them using this little batch (BAT. Note that it has to be run with administrator privileges.

3Dsubtitler does change the time for the Subtitle.

the Subtitle comes later or earlier than the scene. in my case about 3 - 6 seconds later :o(

Works with subtitles in MKV files but does not reckognise SRT and SUB files when playing AVI or MP4 files. (Using WMP 12 on Windows 7 64bit). How can we make it work with all files?

This is my problem too. works fine with mkv and video clip files, but not with mp4 files, anyone who is genius enough to solve this problem?

These codecs suck. I installed all of them, and still got errors when playing back AVI files in Windows Media Player.

I downloaded FFDShow 1280 and installed with all the codecs, no errors at all. Plus, the files were much more responsive. FFDShow's all you need to play audio and video.

Forget all the other sluggish and buggy codecs.

DVDStyler 2.2 rc1
on 16 April 2012, reviewed by: Joe


I downloaded DVDStyler 1.8.2. It's a very nice interface, easy to use. It's great if you are making a full (one chapter) movie. If you want to put together a few episodes, or short movies, it has errors. You can play (all) and it will work well, but when you want to select a chapter, the 2nd menu doesn't seem to work well.

You can select some chapters, but others are inaccessible. The work around for it is to select a chapter that it will allow you to choose then hit the forward or backward button on your dvd remote to get to the chapter you want to watch.

I will look for a better version of DVDStyler, either before this version or after, to see what works. One commenter said to make an .iso file first, then burn the disk with another program. Might try that.
I like this interface and hope to find one that is not this flawed.

I have been using for months now, it is awesome compared to vlc. Media Player Classic was my choice before KMPlayer, but MPC had very low volume, and KMP had the best of both vlc and MPC.

Just one thing annoy me while using KMP - the subtitle rendering, when a see a anime the styled subs are in default fonts(I heard you can correct that by changing some sort of setting, but MPC needs no such change)

just press F2 to go to seatings, from there go to subtitle processing-Multi-Subetc - - Advanced and enable first box ( .ass .ass2 .ssa .ssf )

However it has some problem that is working on PC only not TV.
Because most 3D TV don't support idx/sub file.
And most of the movie player working on PC are supporting 3D subtitle by themselves.
Have you any plan to develop this program to support .ass file or other subtitle file which is supported by 3D TV.

Thanks anyway..

Gom Player
on 02 April 2012, reviewed by: Mikey2OZ


The new versions just keep getting better, but it would be nice if you could stop taking one-step back.

1) The new feature of freely giving users "pop-up" ads whenever we exit GOM Player...not useful. It cheapens your product, but, if it keeps GOM free, I can live with it. How many users even pay attention to the ads? I sure don't.

2) Oh joy, we get more codec issues. A few of the new HD WMV videos will not play and issues an error stating I don't have the necessary codec to play. (VLC, WMP, and others don't have any problems.) I tell it to find the fix, and it does, and then issues the same error next time.

Do keep up the good work. I can't live without many of the features that make GOM the best choice for a media player. One day, you will have a real great product without any issues.

Hi i see you managed to get this codec to work with WMP 11. Ive got this (Windows Media Player cannot play, burn, rip, or sync the file because a required audio codec is not installed on your computer.)

Helium Audio Joiner
on 31 March 2012, reviewed by: Ron Hager


I am disappointed in this product.

Cons: 1) When you highlight the group of files you want to join and it will load them but it will order them differently. (But you can reorder them as needed, or you can add them one at a time in the order you want them in.)

2) WMA files when joined will NOT copy the files at the same bit rate as the original.

3) I merged 4 files together and the merge indicated each file being copied and at the end indicated that all 4 files were joined. HOWEVER, the output file only contained the 1st of the 4 files I selected. A second try resulted in the same result.


It has a easy to use interface.

Just to add some word to "pissed dued" stupid comments .

First of all KMPlayer is one of the most powerful freeware video players I've seen. The most advanced multimedia player available.

VLC is crapware compared to KMPlayer, doesn't have a half of options that KMPlayer has.

Of course , you can encounter in freeware's ask toolbars ,babylon toolbars and others, most of free software has it, and in KMPlayer setup you can DECLINE when you are asked to install such toolbars.
Of course you can associate all files to be played with KMPlayer or none of them, "pissed dued"...

READ BEFORE YOU CLICK NEXT, setup is offering options for everything that an average user needs.

KRAPWARE media player

i thought it might be cool to have another player installed besides MPC and VLC - just to check out

but first, it tries to install the askstub krap toolbar

and then without offering any options or asking asking, it changes all your media file associations to this krap player, that then doesn't even load on media file (avi) launch

i am uninstalling this krapware and reinstalling klitemega/mpc and winamp (just to get all the file associations) and also have vlc for anything that might need it


but i LOVE free-codecs.com!!!!!!! thanks MUCH for making it ALL available - the good and the occasional bad!

2. Will Batch encode multiple files at once (with out having to set each up one by one!)
3. Has AC3 pass through
4. Dose not mess up the Image size or aspect.
5. Give amazing results
6. It simple to use and easy to tweak.

VLC Media Player 2.0.0 final
on 10 March 2012, reviewed by: Ben


Without these problems, it would have been almost perfect for me:

1. Volume normalization is very bad. As it tries to constantly adjust volume up and down, sound is uneven and right down nasty. At best, it's annoying. At worst, it's headache inducing.

2. Video playback is choppy when I play videos that have been converted from PAL to NTSC, and vice versa.

1. Try disabling the time stretch audio option. Or put the dolby surround option on. Maybe that can be help.

2. for converted videos, I use yadif deinterlacing and it gives very good results. Maybe toggle GPU acceleration on - it works for me. VLC is my go to media player for all videos I get from internet.

For my movies, I use Mediaplayer CLassic HomeCinema coz I use ffdshow and haali- gives me best quality

I put 'BAD' not because of the product, which has a good review generally, but rather that it creeps under the radar on 'free' ware sites, then whacks you for £45 if you want to use it properly. A quick 5 minute demo is hardly 'sharing' either. It might as well be in the same category as 'scam' ware when they use such underhand marketing methods.
