I say bad as I have no more appropriate word to describe a non-working, non-documented whatsoever program. Installed on a freshly installed Win 7 64bit, no 3rd party codecs installed apart from Haali matroska splitter. First installed the 64bit version, checked the "make WMP64 bit default", launched WMP, surprise! 32 bit version launched.
Went to WMP64bit version and launched this one, plug-ins manager says "Local Subtitles for WMP" installed, alas, could not get it to display any of my (srt) subtitles along with the movie (same name, same directory of course).
Some help from author would come handy, but support is not available at the moment.
Cool converter, fast speed, easy to use, many formats including bluray file can be available to convert.
You'd better teach how to retrieve the windows media format runtime from the media player packages designed for any specific platform. That'll probably give a lot less errors.
Just download the media player package for your specific OS version and unpack it. One of the files is the wmfdist11.exe file which you are after. Unpacking is done with Total Commander (Alt+F9, unpack specific file), or any other utility capable of unpacking .exe files.
if you can play movies in your media player but cant hear sound try to download xvid. it worked for me, i can play all my movies now
I just downloaded the K-Lite Mega Codec and have already made use of it. I have already found that it has fixed problems and given me support for everything I need. With the K-Lite Mega Codec, I will be shocked to ever again find a media file that I cannot play on my computer.
I would recommend this to anybody. The K-Lite Mega Codec is essential for any user on the Internet. This is worth downloading, no matter how large the file size, no matter how long it takes to download, and no matter how bad people claim it to be.
Any of those that are hesitant to download the K-Lite Mega Codec, I strongly recommend you download it.
wow it really works on my WMP.. love it!!! tnx a lot ^_^
I Just installed it there loads of movies on my hard drive was getting no sound and an error code ac3 sound or something after abit of searching i came across very quick install, now i have sound 10/10 brilliant programme!!
Ive used k-lite mega for a year or so with no problems....
But theres something wrong with the 1.16 mega and the 2.34 versions.
I had to system restore on one machine to clear up regsvr.exe and activemovie window problems on XP Pro SP2 and the machine i'm on now is gonna need the same treatment i think. Mega pack 1.03 is fine.
@Pavithran, it is possible, see "mpc/help/command line swithces". You edit(or add new)"open with"-command for the certain file type. Ie.in XP open: Explorer/Tools/Folder Options/File Types/AVI File, press "Advanced".
I only wish that mpc could open DVD-image files (ie. iso, img,..) without having to mount the file (or installing NERO). If anyone knows a trick, please tell:)(VLC does it, I know)
With the latest version 7.10 I'm not able to play some mkv files with Haali splitter.
Using the MPC's internal splitter or re-installing K-Lite with Gabest splitter for mkv and the file plays fine again.
Wow! I have to admit I was skeptical, but downloading this worked. I had no audio on Windows Media with some files, but now they all work. Thank you so much! Definitely recommend this codec!!
I have to say that I 'm Having the same issues ...
I Installed a pack of codecs and it had the new version and didn't work ...
So i Instaled the 2.39 version and it works like a charm ...
Hopefully, They can resolve this minor issue ...
Because if I have to upgrade the pack it means that all codecs will be updated and running, but if thios doesn't, I have to install a older version, which $uck$, but it's the only way ..
Thre's anyway we could contact the developer ?
This is probably the best converter I've ever used. Really simple and works great. However, as of version 220.127.116.11, my files are not converting at all. Apparently from what I understand this was an accidental release. With that said, if you use this, go back to the version prior to this one and everything will work smoothly.
It would be nice if Freemake's website didn't show as a comment on every file that is encoded. That should definitely be changed in a future update. Otherwise, this is good software and I'll stick with until something better comes along.
the interface is a mess, really counter-intuitive,
it's completely opposite to all standard interfaces that we see in other similar GUI's,
The wizard setup is great, and really thought out, explains many things of the application's settings, and really guides the user what they want the program to do..... but then the program finally loads.... what a mess.... hundreds of boxes and settings exposed to the user....
the entire GUI needs re-structuring,
i would recommend
MEGui (a learning curve for sure, but a powerful GUI none the less)
Xvid4PSP (quite good, the recent 5.x.x versions have come a long way)
AVIDemux (more of an editing tool, but still good functions concerning conversion possibilities)
i say again, MediaCoder needs a GUI that has the kind of thinking that went into the programs setup wizard.
thx it works on my wmp in win7
About two weeks ago, my CPU got the 'XP Home Security' virus...to make a VERY LONG story short, my work files (after soooo many hours of creating new user profile, downloading antivirus software, and almost losing my mind) which need Windows Media Player, would sound like chipmunks gone amuk!!!
I had racked my brain trying to 'fix' this problem. Thank goodness I found this Codec Pack/site! After downloading and installing the XP Codec Pack, I now can use my WAV pedal again and my work files sound fine...NO MORE CHIPMUNKS :)
It works just like it says it does.
thanks to Raymonardo, the rmvb type now no longer asks for cook codec. It works!! ;)
K-Lite is the most player i always prefer when watching favorite movies. But recently they got some bugs, ain't it? Hope it will be fixed soon.. =)
im very happy..everthin work perfectly....the only site that help to solve my problem....cheers
thanks for the advice! i could finally listen to my music!!
wow this is the best mp3 converter im able to save mp3 at 96kbps and they sound the same as 128kb now ill be able to put some ore songs on my 4gb mp3 player thanks
This is a scam. It doesn't fix anything. It doesn't give your system the ability to run avi's it just changes a setting in your avi capable viewer if you already have one.
Finally it works! Such an easy fix. That being said, has anyone had trouble with the sound? I can watch my videos through the HP quickplay, but I get no sound.
The other thing is that if I leave the files as ASX and move them into my Picasa 3 I can now watch them. Again, the issue is that I have no sound.
So close and yet so far.
Thanks for your help and it's a great site. I have been here before but never commented.
I know this is not meant for a AV player.........
but is it possible to give mpc features for viewing images (like a slideshow) along with the ability to stertch 4:3 images to 16:9 (as for videos) and view it on a HDTV/normalTV as a slideshow ?
it would be nice!! hope it will be there in the next release
To make it work:
1. You must have the right version depending on what player you use. A 64bit-player needs the 64bit-version of ffdshow, and 32bit-player needs 32bit version. This (sometimes) means the installation of both 32- and 64-bit versions to make all players work with ffdshow.
2. You need to set the priority to MAX in the ffdshow-setup. To do this, you must run ffdshow-configuration in administration-mode (right-click the setup in menu-bar and run 'as administrator'), then alter the priority-bar. Do this at all places / at both 32-bit and 64-bit versions to be sure.
Don't blame me if this is not official way 8-)
OMG I've been looking for something like this. Thanks a lot it worked great and very easy to install. Thanks :)
Very good but still,sometimes,I experience lagging when I'm watching AVI vids.I used the same file to be played in WMP and I dont see any lags.Media Player Classic is awesome.Fast responding unlike WMP which takes a while to play the song (maybe 2-3 sec or so..) but media player classic starts right away.I love that.
And there is another hiccup.The "Add to Playlist" option is not available for the media player classic.If there is one,things would be much easier.
Good luck,Your Awesomeness.
The player in direct link, or official mirror, is a version 1.7 of itself. I have the Creative Suite CS5 and it really contain the version 1.8 of player (Build 600929):http://www.4shared .com/file/K1If5YJL/adobe_media_player.html.
The player was descontinued, and would be good to have a copy of the latest version, for it is considered an good or best player, same in low definition videos quality. Support the following formats: MOV, MP4, MP4V, M4V, 3GP, 3GPP2, 3G2, F4V, FLV, and SWF natively. The performance is variable, depending of the processor.
Adobe makes their programs based in processor Intel (I can run this it program in one AMD Athlon XP, same being an CS5 integrant program - based in Intel SSE2 instruction). The version in this site is the 1.7, and it not enter in this notice. Read more in wikipedia.
Good idea, but the net framework makes the software a no-go for me. I would really like to see the developers get rid of that requirement.
Ever wondered how to make your speakers louder?
Make you audio clearer? Or have super-hi bass?
DFX Audio Enhancer is your road to a whole new listening pleasure. Giving you whole loads of options to choose for your audio (bass, ambient, fidelity, 3DSurround, Dynamic Boost), it even comes with skins to suit your taste!
DFX Audio Enhancer REALLY does improve audio. Although only music players, it is very effective. In other words, DFX IS MAGIC!
I hope that FXSound will release another version, but this time altering the WHOLE audio output of a computer, for eg. When viewing vids in browser or even enhanced game SFX.
DFX Audio Enhancer all the way! Go go go~
I can not get this vesion to work, so i go for 2.39 that version works with WMP 11 in Vista
Img Burn not compatible with current version DVDFab 18.104.22.168 Have to use built in burner VSO which is slow
Does not seem to work on Windows 7.
excellent choice for ppl who wants all codecs in one pack . i have been trusting k lite codec pack for years and i cant stop using the media player classic that comes with it because of its simplicity and options .
amazing combination keep it up and thx for spending your time for us we really appreciate it .
Open FFDShow Audio Decoder and FFDShow Video Decoder and click Codecs on the left. Choose which formats you'd like to be handled by which decoder and click Apply/OK.
I downloaded the ffdshow software recently and read through the instructions, still did not find any info how to apply it.
Do I need to select the video to play through the ffdshow software, or it is not necessary at all to open and run this software as the programme once installed, will be effective in the background ?
if you encounter problems to install it under Seven (for ex), try the method explained at this url (http://granjow .net/virtualdub-tutorial-installing.html) -- this worked fine for me :)
DirectvobSub 2.40 doesn't work on Win 7 x86 (WMP12), i see green icon, but there is no subtitles on screen (i tried avi and mkv files, no luck to see subs). I use VSFilter 22.214.171.124 and it works fine so far.
I came across MQM (MP3 Quality Modifier 1.41) when I was struggling with a lack of disk space.
I'm trying to create a kind of document (database) for my first grand child, which represents an overview of all modern music at this moment, called "The day before you came". And trying to fit it on one standard 320 GB USB disk.
Up till now I reviewed about 11.000 cdees and several hundreds of personal collections and playlists (including Indie).
The document consists of seven parts: a cd top 1000 (1100 to be sure), collections of all major (about 700) artists, collections of about 25 genres, 25 locally oriented mainstreams (African, Arabic, etc.), a collection of important events (Woodstock etc), some externally generated collections (Rolling Stone, top 1000, etc) and a personal view of about 50 compilations called "Dutch Treat".
So I have a lot of files. And I want the best quality (if it sounds good, it\'s more likely you appreciate the music).
So MQM looks like the perfect solution for me (although it should be a feature of other more commonly used programs).
My first experiment had a strange result. The file became bigger! Obviously the program does not look at an optimum but reacts on a chosen quality. This is not what you want when you have a library whit several different bitrates.
I just want the smallest files without loosing quality and without me knowing what kind of settings I'll have to choose to achieve it.
For my trash library (too good for the trash bin) I could choose Variable 170-210. That is good enough. However 128 Kbps will be enlarged substancely! Not very useful.
I used replace (I trust the program and can't check all files anyway) and my preset button was blanked out. So it was suggested not to use the presets anyway (although it did). So probably just a display issue.
Converting files up and down the quality ladder gave some unexpected results. so be careful.
My advise: use the program for all files from which you are sure that the bit rate settings will cover those from the files. I created bit rate depended libraries (128, 160,192, 224, 256, 320) (I used mp3tag) and run the program using variable, stereo and bit rate that covers the one of the file(s). The result will save at least 10% of disk space.
My ears and eyes (tags) could not find any difference. In fact sometimes I had the impression that some noise was reduces as well. Sometimes my WMP enthusiastically reported that the file had become 320 Kbps. That looks quite solid.
I even tried some lower bitrates and could save some 40% of disk space without noticing the difference. However I love transparent music and more complicated music (metal) is much more critical.
In short, quite a good and effective (free) tool which would be quite handy when it's able to select the "best" bit rate settings automatically per file. Then you could use for instance, a slide bar with the desired quality percentage on a long list of different rated MP3 files.
Some additional small remarks:
After converting a small library, my list of size changes was sorted descending (from 50 to 8%). I doubt people like that, why not the original order.
Adding a directory should start with the last used entry. This prevents unnecessary and annoying repetitions.
The file list presented does not give you the option of selecting parts of the list. It's all or one. Enabling this option will save a lot of time.
Running the program multiple times on the same file results in minor quality loss.
Listing a selected folder take about 1 minute per 1.000 entries. Not too fast I think.
Compressing a file takes on average some 12 sec per file. Not too bad! So, for me that's about 1.200.000 seconds (hum 20.000 hours to go?!). 20 minutes for about hundred files sounds a bit better.
A correction to my just submitted review
20.000 hours should be 20.000 minutes or better 3.350 hours. Looks much better!
