K-Lite Codec Pack Full 18.4.0

The K-Lite Codec Pack is a collection of DirectShow filters, VFW/ACM codecs, and tools. Codecs and DirectShow filters are needed for encoding and decoding audio and video formats. The pack works on all versions of Windows from XP up to Windows 10. The intelligent installer automatically adapts itself based on your version of Windows. It also adapts itself based on what other codecs are already installed on your computer. Contains both 32-bit and 64-bit codecs. The K-Lite Codec Pack is designed as a user-friendly solution for playing all your audio and movie files. With the K-Lite Codec Pack you should be able to play all the popular audio and video formats and even several less common formats. The pack provides extended video thumbnail generation functionality for Windows Explorer. All popular video file formats are supported.

K-Lite Codec Pack 64-bit
IMPORTANT: The separate 64-bit pack is OBSOLETE. Starting from version 10.0.0 of the codec pack, the 64-bit codecs have been integrated into the normal K-Lite Codec Pack, which you can download bellow. You no longer need to install 64-bit codecs separately!

Advantages of the codec pack compared to using VLC Player:
You get better video quality when you use MPC-HC in combination with madVR (an advanced video renderer).
The pack provides additional functionality that is not directly related to playback. For example video thumbnail generation in Windows Explorer, and display of MKV file properties in Windows Explorer. The pack provides more hardware acceleration options. Better support for MKV files. Better performance for rendering SSA/ASS subtitles. MPC-HC loads much faster than VLC. MPC-HC provides a better user interface (in our opinion). Codecs are also available to other applications.

Windows XP K-Lite Codec Pack compatibility
K-Lite Codec Pack 13.8.5 is the last version compatible with Windows XP SP3.
