x264 Video Codec rev. 2008
on 17 June 2011, reviewed by: Registered11


the best just keeps getting better, and x264 wins in all situations when comparing it to Xvid, the experts over at doom9 all agree that there is not a situation where Xvid (ASP) is superior to x264.

there should never be a situation where Xvid gives superior results to x264, if this does occur than without doubt x264 has been mishandled (utilized incorrectly with settings perhaps) in someway.

x264 is superior to ASP encoders in every sense of the word, x264 was designed from the ground up to be a LOW & HIGH bitrate encoder!

on 17 June 2011, reviewed by: TheDevian


I still don't get what is different about the 2 players, MPC and MPC-HC, especially considering they will both run without the other there. No offense but I don't really care who wrote it, when I ask that question I want to know what is dif between the players themselves.

One that I just figured out is that on MPC there is no check for hiding the playlist on fullscreen like there is on -HC version.

AVI Frame Rate Changer 1.10
on 14 June 2011, reviewed by: Jeffory glsank


Amazing , Just what I needed.
Audio sync , change frame rate, without encoding.

I have lots of downloaded videos that wont play properly in media players.
The audio is out of sync.

The issue is the avi files report a VIDEO framerate of 25.062fps when it should be 25fps.

This tool is great. It does what it says it does.
Changes the framerate of video in a file.

I had high hopes for this. It is supposed to work in XP, and to convert from PVA format to a more "PC Friendly" understandable mpeg2 stream. So I gotr it, unzipped it, and ran the GUI.

Simple GUI but usable.

BUT...when I try and use it...not so good. Every option that involves using the file, causes the program to die. I cannot :

"Get Info"
"Convert to PS"

Attempting any of these causes the program to get a standard windows error dialog. In short (too late) the program does not work in XP Pro, at least not in our home. I honestly doubt it was tested properly, as that requires running it on XP, Vista (eew), and Win 7 as well as anything else it has been ported to.

Had it actually been run in XP Pro, it would have died.

to convert a show that I recorded off of our digital box, every option (other than selecting a file) causes the program to fail and die.

DirectVobSub (VSFilter) 2.40
on 11 June 2011, reviewed by: MikeN


I had brand new Windows7 64-bit HomePremium OS. It has all the latest bells-and-whistles for home users Microsoft has to offer. Except subtitles in Windows Media Player (version 12).

Doh! I was really surprised WMP still didn't support SUB/SRT subtitle files out of the box.

I tried "everything" and finally gave up. Downloaded VLC video player and it supported subtitles out of the box. It would have been OK for me except that subtitle fonts looked a bit ugly and blocky when a video was in full screen mode. I guess I could have tweaked it somehow to look better but I was just looking for a solution, not tweaks.

Then I came across DirectVobSub 2.40.x 32bit version (WMP in 64bit Windows7 is by default 32bit application. Weird, I know). Installed DirectVobSub, launched WMP and voila! Nice looking subtitles out of the box. That's what I call a solution.

Thx DirectVobSub developers. You have done something MS should learn from you.

You make it sound so easy. =o) I have Windows7 64-bit HomePremium OS as well as Windows Media Player (version 12). Downloaded DirectVobSub-2.40.3093_x64 which didnt work and then I read your review about WMP being 32 bit by default (which is why Im replying to you).

I uninstalled the above mentioned version and installed vsfilter.2.39_nt instead (since I figured I dont know what Im doing so Ill let the installer do it).Under my Program Files (x86) there is a folder called DirectVobSub and within that folder are only two things. An uninstall.exe and a vsfilter.dll file.

Is the vsfilter.dll file supposed to be placed somewhere else? If so, could you please tell me where? I got lost reading the help guides.Your prompt response and help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Local Subtitles for WMP 1.5
on 08 June 2011, reviewed by: Rany


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.

Windows Media Format 11 Runtime
on 07 June 2011, reviewed by: Vieze Man


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.

K-Lite Mega Codec Pack 7.1.0
on 04 June 2011, reviewed by: L5G


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.

@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)

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 ?


Freemake Video Converter
on 28 May 2011, reviewed by: djb247365


This is probably the best converter I've ever used. Really simple and works great. However, as of version, 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.


MediaCoder r5
on 28 May 2011, reviewed by: JSDReg22


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

Fairuse Wizard,

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.

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.


Same issue with .mp4 video generated by a D-link DCS-2210 camera. On W7, I can easily read the video but no sound. Audio codec is G.276. Any idea?

FFDShow MPEG-4 Video Decoder 2011-05-12
on 20 May 2011, reviewed by: spoozum


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-)

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 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.
