I have used VLC player for years. It either works great or it flat out causes major issues with your computer.
Version 2.0.6 cannot be scanned by my Anti-Virus, Vipre Internet Solutions.
It took many attempts to install it. When finally installed, it pretty much took over all audio and video, and the audio quality on playback was terrible, fuzzy and difficult to understand.
I will continue trying to make it work correctly, but in the meantime, Windows Media Server and GOM are my backups. I hope a new revision comes out quickly.
I use Windows 7 64-bit with a fast Intel cpu and LOTS of memory.
The Tara codec is installed successfully with Winamp but could not work completely with Realplayer 16 I am sorry for saying that even after re-installing realplayer and winamp and nothing changed.
I am waiting for feedback and reply.
Still the best multimedia player out there!
The most advanced and yet simple to use. Using it for 5 years, had no problem!
When streaming after few days audio is DEsyncronised.
Solution is back to codec from 2011y or 2012y.
Works great on Windows 8 64 bit! Hooray!
Pictures were taken on a Sony NEX-6, so it may not be limited to the DSLR series of Sony cameras.
This media player has 2 problems:
1st its the older version without Home cinema. . so why would download it.
Second in general there are just better free media players out there like VLC
Currently, the best player out there. Try it.
Simply the BEST! It beats even paid viewers, like ACDSee.
Not having thumbnails to preview my video files is an annoyance I've lived with for 6 months. Media Preview solved this problem in less than 6 minutes.
All video files (with all codecs) are now displaying thumbnails on all 3 of my drives.
I am really amazed by how smooth my films are playing right now. Tried most common video formats and they all seem to work very well.
Recommended codec pack imo.
Still the WORST PLAYER ever. Not convinced? Read the "important notes" above, it installs spyware, malware and monitors usage.
Poor support (if any) for any format other than realmedia (which nobody uses anyway)
Great alternatives: Daum´s PotPlayer, VLC or Media Player Classic Home Cinema.
K-Lite Code Pack is a SOB !!
This Baby is so fast , light , and it runs almost everything. No way ho zay any other media player could match it. K lite ROCKS from the very first day it was launched. I love it !!!
This is the best programe ever. LOVE THIS :P
3DSubtitler is crap.
It crashes when I double-click it.
"3DSubtitler has detected a problem and must close".
There is no proper installer neither is there any help for this crap.
Have used K Lite Codec Pack for years, and LOVED IT!! However, I upgraded to 9.7.5 a few weeks ago. The audio randomly starts being slightly off from the video in pretty much every format that I use.
I've gone to options, but any tweak I do only fixes the problem for a few seconds...then it's like a badly dubbed movie again, the lips are moving, but the audio either isn't keeping up or is a little ahead.
Have tried Videolan many times, Gom also, ALSHOW and many others. Have come back again and again to Klite. In spite of an unattractive skin of MPC, by far, it is the best video playeR
i love this software, its the best for downloading music from, its worth downloading.. i found this software from this site. I thank free-codecs.com for posting this software, it was a great help for me in finding music, now i don't have to go to Google in finding each songs, this software does the job :D
I'm sharing this with my friends :D
although i found bugs, its better not to use the pause feature, its buggy..
Can original huffyuv decode ffdshow huffyuv?
(I have problems with out of sync using avisynth+ffdshow huffyuv)
Works perfectly to convert my AMR voice recordings from my cell to something I can actually work with.
VLC can play them, but I needed them transcribed by Dragon, and this converter did the trick.
Excellent codec pack, has been my choice for more than 5 years, and I only had twice since that time to use VLC for a problem of subtitles handling on 2 rmvb movies. Except those very very rares exceptions, it has never failed, and MPC is a kick-ass player !!
Only deception : since a few packs, the tool G-Spot have been removed from the pack, it was a great tool to get every info you needed from the audiovideo files.
Keep on the good work (and please get back G-Spot :P)
.Easy to use
.Don't know your actual codec installation ? It comes with its codec files and will use them
.VERY efficient when playing damaged, corrputed, incomplete files
.Will defintitely save you time when your current player fails on some specific files
.Well, if you DO know why you have your current choice of codec installation, VLC won't use them cause it uses its own files
.Ergonomy : inefficient when you want to get just a few seconds backward \ forward.
Just do like me : Use MPC-HC with K-Lite Mega Codec Pack. When you have a problem on a specific file (let's say once every 2 years), VLC is the guaranted working alternative, saves me the trouble of seeking throw the net or trying to fix the file.
Foobar2000 is awsome !
VERY light in term of CPU & RAM usage
Very wide codec support
Excellent at mass tagging and managing your audio library
Lots of extensions available if needed
Love you foobar2000, keep up the good work.
It is necessary to ensure all files are being opened and played properly when installing K-Lite.
Last time after installing 9.7.x, all files except transport stream files can play in MPCHC. Attempting to open a TS file will result in MPCHC error (even after switching splitters). Had to reinstall an older version (9.3.0) in the end to get the TS file playback working, but then weird RMVB playback issues occur (symptoms occur after repeated search, cue/review).
Definitely more debugging efforts are needed when releasing K-Lite updates.
Just Great. Could not play some flac files downloaded from the internet in my WMP. Just installed the madflac, double clicked on the files and they were playing well.
Simple and effective. Love It.
This is the greatest downloader in the soft world.
Thx FastStone !
Worked for me perfect on Winamp 5.581 x86, Win7 x64, AMD X2, 8Gb RAM, Geforce 8600 GT 1Gb.
Just copied to plugins directory and re-added all MPC files. Thanks!
Now it works OK….
But time the same of song APE 4:56, OGG 4:56 and AC3 4:?!? Why?
Does not appear any update ?
Nice and easy to use, big variety of format support.
It is a fantastic player for it is new and GUI looks fresh.
And not-so-light on the system resources.
I am impressed with such a smooth rendering of the video and audio.
It seeks through the High-Definition movie so fast.
Skins looks Alienware - like.
Muy buen programa para efectos sorround.
Excellent GUI for transcoding needs, very powerful, lots of features, you can tweak (almost?) any of eg. x264's, Xvid's options, AviSynth-based encoding and filtering gives room as much as your imagination can come up with, and it uses the best tools in business!
A bit of a learning curve, but well worth it when you can have the latest bells and whistles to transform your whole media collection into pretty much any kind of usage scenario there is.
Updated regularly, and it keeps track of all the needed tools so you don't have to worry about old versions or incompatible tools.
I've used this for years, and can't remember a single problem in all that time.
I cant change the video and audio bitrate...
I want to change the video bitrate to 550 kbps and just can set it in 700 kbps, same with the audio bitrate i want to chage it to 64 kbps and just can set it in 128 kbps... please fix that :(
For some reason, when I install the Codec pack, it says that some registries are missing, so no codecs get installed. Is there a way to fix this?
MP3 -> OGG ... fail
MP3 -> WAV ... fail
Great player, I like it better than the latest versions of KMPlayer (which has really gone downhill as of late).
Is there a way to contact the developer? (in English?)
And one question or feature suggestion: is there a hotkey or something to skip forward/backwards only a small jump, like ˝ or 1 second or so? (left/right by default does 5 sec back/forward, I need smaller steps)
It worked fine on widows xp pro sp3, but it will not work at all with windows 8 pro. It installs but that is all it does.
This is undoubtly an excellent player used with LAV filters, madVR, AC3 filter and Haali.
It would be great if the author keeps improving the player at regular basis.
For too long there has been a problem in playing the next file in a folder. Its not been solved yet.
Will always skip audio at start of play, no matter what settings.
