Editor's review K-Lite Codec Pack
The K-Lite Codec Pack is a collection of Codecs, which are needed to de- and encode audio- and video files. The K-Lite Codec Pack is necessary for all movies you are downloading from the Internet. Pros The first pro is that this program is free, another pro is that it has a size of only 14,2 MB, might that it seems to some quite huge, but thinking of what it?s capable to do , it is rather not so huge. There were over 17.506.267 downloads which confirm the greatness of this program. Other pros for the K-Lite Codec Pack are the contained features as for example that it is always up- to- date, it is user friendly, is comes with a customizable installation, all tests came out good, what secures that there is no Codec- conflict, at the same time it comes in a neat complete package. You will also recognize that there are three different versions of the K-Lite Codec Pack, which assures that you can find the right one for you. The fist pack is a basic version, which comes with all the necessary essentials regarding popular formats, at the same time fits on a floppy disc. The standard version is what you need for most of the common used formats, while the full version offers all the above mentioned and more for those, who like to do their own decoding. Cons The bigger versions of the K-Lite Codec Pack contains a lot of Codecs, which, possibly you will never need and occupy, therefore unnecessarily amount of memory. I haven?t found other cons and after an online research I couldn?t even find something negative on the web, so I think this is something that speaks for itself. Summary If you want to be able to watch movies and play music on your computer then you have to invest the time to download the K-Lite Codec Pack. You would like to know what so of the features of the K-Lite Codec Pack are , here we go: a player, a FFDShow, a DirectShow-Video-Filter, a VFW-Video-Codec, aDirectShow-Audio-Filter, a ACM-Audio-Codec, a DirectShow-Quell-Filter, a DirectShow-Subtitle-Filter, a decoding-Tool and such tools as for example GSpot Codec Information Appliance, VobSubStrip, GraphEdit, MMCompView, AVI Fixed, FourCC Changer and Bitrates-Calculator. The over all rating for K-Lite Codec Pack should be 8 out of 10, for its reliability, but there are files which are installed without necessity.
