Sharks windows 7 codec pack or Combined codec community pack?
I have no idea. I am really stratified with CCCP. Its stable, compact and supports a lot. The only things which aren't supported are realmedia and quicktime. When I need those I use real alternative and qt alternative. Or I just watch the film trailers on youtube
K-Lite Codec Pack Full
Shark's Windows 7 Codec Pack is more than enough for Windows 7 + you will be free to use any media player of your choice. You can also check Kantaris Media Player 0.6.4, KMP, VLC Player, and MPC-HC, which don't require you to install codec pack(s) to play common (mkv, mp4 etc.) media formats.
K-Lite FULL works for me.
K-Lite is good, but contains too much filters even for those files types, which you have/will never played/play. This will also cause dependencies problems --> jerky play --> no audio etc. Always use necessary filters only. K-Lite Full/Mega is good for Windows XP but for Windows 7, Shark's Windows 7 Codec Pack is more than enough.
I've never had a problem with K-Lite, but then I use W2K3. Perhaps there are issues with W7, so thanks for the heads-up.
I was using K-Lite but now I m using VLC player. VLC Players is good for every extension I use.
Well just recently found out Shark's 7 Codec pack, heh but I have been using VLC + CCP and MPC-HC as another alternative, but WMP12 also is a good player
Tried sharks 7 codec it works good with wmp12 displaying subtitles and stuff but not really familar with it (codec pack config), so I stuck with CCCP and VLC and MPC-HC..
If there are newer builds of MPC will I be able to update the 1 bundled with CCCP? If so how?
Thanks you guys, it's been a while since I've asked help here..
klite codec pack works perfect in all windows for me, also dxva is easy to enable
only thing i am having trouble with is MP4 files even tho K-Lite is installed. How ever i picked up on this site for getting that stuff to work
CCCP. I've never had a problem watching or viewing via PC / Ps3 or both my zunes.. Use the beta's that I've marked in the Anime Nation.. Their up to date, and I've never seen a problem watching anything threw that.
CCCP .. trust me ... set it and forget it
i had CCCP installed once and i couldnt get DVD Movies to play in WMP, yet K-Lite i could, that is with Windows XP
Either FFdShow alone or DivX+AC3 Filter. Nothing else. It also seems that DivX H.264 codec is pretty efficient. Not far behind CoreAVC really.
I use K-Lite with Vista X64 and it works great. No problems at all.
I always read that k-lite pack was evil. I just use mpc-hc and it does more then enough.
Every over-bloated pack is evil. Try to use as minimal number of codecs as possible.
Codec packs usually pack all sorts of stuff that you'll probably never need.
For 99,99% of videos you'll need:
- DivX (which can decode XviD and generic MPEG4 as well)
- AC3 Filter (for all the high quality movies)
- H.264 (for HD video, latest DivX includes this with MVK splitter, otherwise you need some other H.264 codec and splitter)
That's it. You don't really need anything else.
i think it is .MKV
tje joys of CCCP - its not bloated.
its pretty much Xvid, FFDSHOW, haali and VSfilter - its pure minimum, but preconfigured to cover just about everything a codec pack legally can (its illegal to include quicktime, coreAVC or Real media codecs, like some packs do)
and i've never ran into a file type it couldnt play either.
I use K-Lite, no problms with it!
Plus I like Windows Media Player classic that comes with it.
MPC comes with many of the codec packs these days.
