I have been using this for well over a decade, I have recommended it to hundreds of customers of the company I work for, neither I or any of these people have ever encountered an issue with it, always works like a charm.
That speaks for itself.
The player is awesome it's the best to date that I have used, But after the Nov 26th Update the player is not showing any video. It's playing the audio file of the video though.
It's not free! Doesn't work unless you pay.
I have never experienced this and I have been using K-Lite Codec packs for over a decade. I think you have downloaded a dodgy copy from somewhere.

The K-Lite Codec Pack is THE perfect choice for dealing with audio and video codecs on Windows enviroment (both DirectShow and Microsoft Media Foundation); I use it from a lot of years, never had a problem, never a conflict.
The Pack is based on the solid MPC-HC as default player and LAV filters as the core for the codec part.
The Codec Tweak Tool and GraphStudioNext are also great tools for changing all the intricacies of the filters, also for WMP.
Great user support too, and this is very remarkable for a free software.
one thing I have noticed in the windows media player that is if you play mkv file with subtitles in srt format in the same directory of the mkv file, then nothing displayed on the screen but it doesn't happen with mp4 files and srt subtitles files.
after install it , can't convert anything with jetaudio player, probably the LAV codec again, how to disable it?
Lav has a blacklist option in the registry. Ask on K-Lite forum for help.

Having been using K-lite for almost 10 years now. Best codec pack hands down.
video driver stoped work, this only happens with k-lite installed, and watching videos on youtube or movies by media player classic, my video card is a Amd R9 270x
Solved all my problems with HEVC or x265.
Uninstall everything regarding codecs, and just install this.
No Audio on MKV movie. Switching back to former version.
Lists of Menu are not all translated in Chinese_Traditional Form.
Call me stubborn , but I still use Baplayer 1.32 build 820
Since ffdshow is no longer updated, and got a H265 mp4 file to watch , I installed K-Lite Standard.
It turns out the LAV SPlitter is not compatible with Bsplayer and BS kept crashing. I had to disable lav splitter and use mp4 splitter and haali splitter again...
Still can not H265 files with BS though. If only the lav splitter can be made compatible with BS 132 ...
It will not load SRT files anymore.No more subs for me... Is this progress ore am i missing something here?
same here it was one of the best options ,which i frequently used

Why does it install AVG toolbar and Chrome?
Why is Chrome hidden from Windows explorer but not from the command prompt?
Is this some kind of rootkit?
Because you dont read when you are clicking Next or OK... Thats why.

There is a problem with sound level is low compared with Windows media player.
The official K-Lite installer does not contain Babylon or any other forced crapware. You must have downloaded a fake unofficial adware wrapped installer.
K-Lite Codec Pack 9.9 Full, Standard and Basic
on 20 May 2013, reviewed by: Nicholas Wright
I`m pretty sure this won`t be published but wanted to send you a heartfelt "up yours" for including the nasty piece of software called "babylon" with this install -
Even though I very carefully de-selected all the additional junkware attached to this install and SPECIFICALLY excluded "Babylon" - your installer STILL installed it, and it is a BUGGER to remove.
I do not want my surfing habits sold on to a third party and neither do I want this trashware hogging my processor time sending that information to god knows what shady people so After a long search removing it from my machine , registry and browsers I will not be using your service again and be taking strenuous steps to prevent anybody else making the same mistake.
Sounds like you got a shady copy I have been using this for over a decade with no issues.

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 !!!
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.
Could not view ordinary DVD on windows(xp) media player.
Downloaded the k-lite codec pack basic.
Installed all default setting, no problem.
Media player now runs DVDs perfectly. Thank you.
As far as I can tell, no virus, adware, scams or other crap.
I have used this codec and its media player from years ago..
And i like the fast loading file, fast buffer, etc.
maybe its good idea, i hope the media player classic have some skins that can change like winamp.

I wish to express my thanks. I just downloaded the standard codec pack, installed it for media player 11. It worked the first time with no problems, no hassel, no gimmicks. A truly refreshing internet experience.
Mine is a very interesting experience with K Lite Codec Pack.I am using this since very long.But after 7.5 version a problem cropped up.
I am using Boilsoft video splitter and cutter also.They started showing video screen with blue and green stripes with audio.So i reverted to 7.5.But now i upgraded to latest 9.3 and problem is same.Struggled whole day with various tweaks but no use.
The most surprising turnaround solution i found is starting K lite codec pack player with a video.Keeping it in pause and minimize to tray.Then i opened "Boilsoft" software.To my utter surprise the problem is vanished and it is showing well video.Once it is ok closing k lite has no problem.
I am sharing this for the benefit of others.

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.
latest version of k-lite codec have not a facility of thumbnail view.
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?
Simply, the best, I have used it and x64 pack for years..
Seems great.I could not play flash files (.flv) with bsplayer pro and i could not find a solution for days,only this package did the work!!
Bad! Very bad! I was using v8.3.0 Basic and everything was excellent.
Then I've downloaded v8.6.0 and that was disaster.
My MKV files were "screaming" in Windows Media Player 9/WinXP SP3.
Please, fix it asap.
All I wanted was to add FLV to WMP
I had installed ffdshow and several splitters, etc
I installed K-Lite
then double clicked a FLV file and Vwala, worked like a charm
Loved the fact it detected previous codecs and had me remove them, found bad regisrty links, etc
My only wish now to have this player on my Symbian BELLE!
very good codec pack & intelligent design. how smart? after i clicked setup, it detected my existing installed media player codec pack v4.1.4 and asked me to remove it.
after reboot, i clicked setup again then followed the instruction. it has a choice for me to select media player or windows media player, which i'm using. it even helped to cleanup some of file broken links in the windows registry!
after installation, my windows media player works perfectly ok and i have no issue at all to play dvd interactive, .mov (qt), flv, rmvf at different screen size.
Big thanks to the Great Team!!!
