    I've been using it for a long long time, and compared to all the other similar codec software, and believe me I've tried them all, K-Lite is KING, it always works nicely and without problems of any kind. So I can only rate as high as 5 I would rather say 10, but no problemo five thumbs up.

    Hello Firenze do you have any knowledge about codecs in general? It doesn't seems like you do. Klite is one of the best set of codecs you can get if you just know how to use it. You know, there's a reason why Klite is rated so high, and that is because people out there think it's the best set of codecs you can get. But anyway, against stupidity, even gods are fighting in vain.

    I have nothing but positive things to say about k-lite codec pack. I prefer the mega codec pack, because one never knows when they might need such utilities. Overall it's a great piece of software that has enabled me to view many types of media and expand my view of the world. Without K-lite I wouldn't have started to realize how necessary a large variety of codecs was

    The only problem I've had with these packages is.
    I work in real estate & a large part of my business is making virtual tours of houses and property and reviewing them before posting them on my web sites.
    After I install any of these K-Lite packs, my virtual tours stop working on my machine. I've tried the configuring options on the packs & it doesn't help.
    I can't uninstall and do a system restore & fix the problem, because it doesn't fix the problem. I have to wipe the drive and re-install everything.
    I'd say that is a pretty big problem.
    I give this 4 stars because it does what it is made to do.
    If I didn't have the problem that I do, I'd give it a 5.

    Just to clarify:
    - If you already have codec pack version 5.1.0 - 5.1.6 installed, this update upgrades it to version 5.1.8, and includes newest versions of ffdshow, MediaInfo, and the Codec Tweak Tool.

    - If your version is older than 5.1.0, then you need to download the complete installer instead of the update!

    Reviewing 06/06/07 (Jun 7, 2007)

    KLCP has specifically been designed around ffdshow. It will not "damage" performance or compatibility.

    And far from installing outdated versions, KLCP is actually one of the best ways to keep ffdshow up to date.

    Packaging ffdshow with complementary codecs in the manner that KLCP has does NOT degrade performance, and I defy anyone to explain why it would, much less provide proof.

    Don't listen to those who only wish to spread inaccurate FUD and underrate good software in some attempt to pimp their pet player/package. Let this software stand on its own merits, of which it has plenty.

    quoted from ffdshow's wikipedia page:

    "Codec packs have been known to damage ffdshow's performance in the past. Some will override ffdshow or disrupt proper video display, and almost all will install outdated ffdshow versions."

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ffdshow

    if youre going to use a codec pack, this is probably the best one. unfortunately most users are unaware that including codecs AND ffdshow degrades performance.

    I was not a fan of codec-packs, I've been always installing the codecs by hand, but since I gave this one a try, I have never looked back. Great and stable codec pack. Probably the only thing you need in your computer [if using Windows] to play 99.9% of all the different video and audio files you encounter on web or dl etc.

    I am using the mega codec pack and I was a little cautious at first due to previously having bad experiences with this type of package.

    I am using it with XP and it performs really well with no issues at all.

    I am very impressed :)

    No glitches to report 'so far' while on Vista...except for failure to updare ffdshow-- a re-install while in Safe Mode should solve that inconsequential oddity.

    BTW some time ago there was some pirate similarly-named codec site that would foist malware on one's system with this codec pack...It's a dangerous world out there Virginia, but hopefully you'll only rate something you've actually installed & used...in the future?

    If the codec pack is so safe, then why are there so many reporting their download is corrupt? Ref. repeated downloads from http://www.afterdawn.com...ite_codec_pack_full.cfm

    Plus why's that site's download of this thing (klcodec284f.exe version 2.8.4.0) 3.81 Mb and this sites supposedly exact same download of klcodec284f.exe version 2.8.4.0 is 17.4 Mb? Too much funny business for me to even consider installing this.

    I want to play DVD-movies on my PC.

    I do not have any media player except Windows Media Player 11.
    I also do not want to install any other player.
    The above means that I cannot view DVD movies on my PC - right ?

    What did I do ?

    I installed K-lite Mega 161
    Default installation.
    Can I view DVD movies ? The answer is no !
    That's why I uninstalled K-lite Mega 161, because = no use.

    Then I installed XP coded pack.
    Default installation.
    Can I view DVD movies ? The answer is YES !

    Whatis the problem with K-lite in this case ?

    KLCP will work with *ANY* DirectShow player, including Windows Media Center. It doesn't install many codecs at all in the default profile. It will certainly not harm your system.

    MPlayer still needs improvement, specially the GUI front-ends.

    VLC works great, but has an awful GUI, so you need to find a skin that you like.

    The explorer crashing problem is because under winxp avi previewing is turned on at default, you need to turn this off otherwise browsing divx files will make explorer crash. It's not the codec packs problem, it's a problem with windows that was never fixed.

    The newest updates to this codec pack allow you to turn off avi previewing during the install process.

Plus, the splash screen of the installer doesn't even know how to spell correctly. It's pathetic. I do not, nor should you, trust this installer. 24 hours after the new codec pack version release this update comes and they can't release an actual installer as usual ? or spell English on it's installer (whoever it is that made it that is)...
