Easy download. Do be careful of add-ons. Works great.
The best sounding MP-3 audio encoder out there.
I did a fresh windows 7 install before re-ripping all of my CD’s I installed the 3.99.1 lame_enc.dll into the Windows\System32 folder audio grabber found it and my other audio programs use it as well. Hay for you audio files out there the Windows 7 has a problem with there Sample Rate Converter I have tested it with a spectrum analyzer the converter creates artifacts into the converted audio.

Ok before any update back up your files.
It is much easier for DRM to be relatively impervious in 64-bit Windows. DVD43 came up with this stopgap method buy I believe DirectShow now operates as a kernel mode API and so video cannot be sampled off a DVD like original DVD43 did so well.
Anyhow, here's their link to the best effort: http://www.free-codecs.com/download_soft.php?d=5753&s=136&r= . This is DVD43 v126.96.36.199 and it's old. Make sure you are burning with "burnproof" and/or "simulate mode" on first, or just do a dry run before each title with a DVD-RW.
I have the Hunger Games (store bought) in my possession right now and it 5 2-hour "chapters" listed in the menu system. The copy protection is not getting easier!
My other suggestion is to use linux for this and other tasks. If you can get Linux Mint or Debian or Fedora to PLAY the actual content in VLC or mplayer, etc ... that means the stream (the demuxed mpeg2/VOBs are be written to display software in the clear.
That means that stream can be grabbed by anything: VLC, AcidRip, Lives, even Brasero. This is part of the reason why playing HDCP Blurays in most linux distros is difficult: the stream is not protected end-to-end.
Let me know if you have any more questions :)
I have one problem with this -- it won't play my low-quality videos.
At first this did not work for me also - Windows 7.
I saw the review below that said to first do the filter install (when you install it, it will just pop up a window that says information and some other nonsense) and tell win7 it installed OK..then hit install.bat.
Now I get flacs playing in windows media player. Baller!
are those videos x264? (MKV, MP4 etc)
Me too get stuck when seeking x264 repeatedly when using LAV.
If so, First try enabling DXVA if you have a good VGA. ( For newbies Options, Internal Filters Tick H264 DXVA)
Else try disabling LAV codec.
Or when playing go filters, LAV settings, uncheck x264.
Then it will use DivX x264 or FFDSHOW wich is better for me!
This version working well with Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium.
It is one of the few audio codecs I get to work right with the AMD/ATI video decoder to compress HD Television recordings.
Any ETA on a Win764bit release?
today i installed QT Alternative because QT had stopped working (once again!) due to y deleting of other Apple stuff i thought did not need.
so now thanks to QT Alternative, i can open .mid files, but.... they are silent ? o_0 what did i do wrong ?
thank you for any insight :-)
ps: i tried to ask this on the forum but could not register for some reason (never received the confirmation email)
Norton 360 promptly deleted it.
This k-lite codec pack is really great. I am using this on my laptop. And it is quiet good. I've never experience problem playing my video's.
Great product! Very fast downloading!
Este plugin es excelente. Funciona de maravilla en mi windows 7 home premium 64 bits !!!. No se si habrÃ¡ otro mejor pero este es excepcional !!
gracias FREE-CODECS !!!
Luego de muchos meses de búsqueda, esta era la pieza del rompecabezas que me faltaba, si!!!, este codecs le permite a media player classic, identificar tracks de audio DTSWav,que están como una imagen de disco montada con Daemontools lite, luego de que Media Player Classic identifica las pistas, AC3Filter hace un SPDIF passtrought de 16bits a 44100KHz!!!
y listo DTS desde mi PC a mi MuTeKi, todo virtual! sin disco físico de música!
Awesome little utility, now, just waiting for full .mp4 support.
Its a wonderful filter for playing all kind of video and audio. Nvidia CUVID works flawlessly and its performance is just awesome. I feel now this LAV is better than ffdshow.
Highly recommended for the best playback.
Excellent, No.1 Video Editing tool for windows xp, all in 1, lite, fast....
latest version of k-lite codec have not a facility of thumbnail view.
Very poor, bad synch, lots of frame drops in full screen unless you have new hardware. Same hardware plays fine full screen MKV, AVIs in HD.
I wonder if an older version is better.
Cleared up annoying audio sound distortions/unwanted noise for a couple of months,but back to square one now.
Program seems to require update for windows 7 which I could not find.
Translations from MPC-HC are only included in the Mega codec pack, not in Full and Standard.
I can't change the language in mpc-hc. I can only see English. Without this problem, k-lite is very useful when I play video.
by the way, can I use it at school?
I was looking for something other than ffdshow for mpeg4.
I always use ffdshow but wanted a smaller utillity to keep pc cleaner and less configuration. This was a quick straight foward install with no configuring.
Picture looks great and pc processes videos with ease. Highly recomend using this.
this player works just fine.....if you like watching your dvds upside down! The picture is clear, doesnt lag, but HUGE problem, my picture is upside down , and apparently no way to correct it.
Does exactly what it says, love it!
The software works okay, BUT the support stinks. Dont buy
Once you install this software on your system DO NOT UPGRADE any hardware in your system, If you do you will HAVE to buy another key. thats another 49 bucks for something you already own.
Claimed it repaired my mp3 file... did absolutely nothing.
Read the K-Lite FAQ and you will find a solution.
I love this program!!
it replaced itunes for me which i was having real trouble with on my PC! but i wanting to know does anyone on here know how to change the app language that it gives you? I am a failure at reading Chinese ^_^; lol
LAV filter causing no sound when try fast forwarding rmvb movies
Audio: AAC 44100Hz stereo
Video: RealVideo 4 848x480
Super easy to use. And the quality is excellent.
WORKS GREAT ON 32 BIT, BUT NOW MY WINDOWS 7 IS 64 BIT WANT WORK, DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT I NEED FOR 64 BITS, HELP !
I wished that I could help Bill.
(I have Win 7 and just installed that version of IrfanView, without any problems, right into my Program Files (x86) folder.) I would guess, uninstall and check you install options, carefully?
My problems is with the Slideshow Mode and their Full Screen Options (Full Screen / Slideshow). None of them seem to be working or holding within Full Screen Mode? :(
Worked on my Windows Vista PC, using DivX Plus Player!
I like it, but this version makes Windows Explorer crash when I over mouse cursor over mp4 files for tooltip (only with mp4).
What the Heck? I was so pleased to be able to finally play a concert video hidden on a CD from 2000--after following advice and downloading KMPlayer. But it only worked once!! I can not recreate the conditions, nor can I get it to work on XP Windows Media Player. That device continually tells me that I do not have the correct codec.
Like Christina (15 July 2009), I would like to have WMP recognize the codec. Tweak Tools from K-Lite also could not help. I have been able to get the VIDEO to play in WinAmp, but with NO AUDIO... HELP!! PS. Does all of the advice about .inf files and copying to the C: drive no longer apply now that we have .exe files?
I could not get any of the advice about "voxacm file set up," nor "Run as Administrator" to apply to my situation. Is that advice out of date?
Installed madflac 1.10 as per instructions here, but some .flac files will not play at all even though they play just fine with Goldwave.
I am using win7 64 bit home premium.
I always love the KMP Player , n loved this new version too . Easy to use , easy shortcuts , like the look n its varied options .
Just that , i am facing problem with .avi files .
Plz fix it .
Downloaded and worked!! Really happy :) :)
For me, this is a smaller, yet more effective alternative to K-Lite Codec Pack, simply because of the fact it does a better job at thumbnailing media files than the Icaros Thumbnailer that is now bundled with K-Lite, which is still relatively buggy.
The software is clean, no adware, no virus, a quick install, and is pretty simple to use. Very happy I found this.
I hope it continues to stay updated! Thanks Free-Codecs!
