Opus Codec for Windows Media Player

Opus is a lossy audio codec that has some significant advantages over other lossy codecs such as MP3 or AAC. Another advantage of Opus is its remarkable audio quality, especially at low bitrates. Out of the box, Windows Media Player doesn’t support playing Opus files. If you want to play Opus files using Windows Media Player, you need to install a third-party software such as DC-Bass Source Mod, a minimalist audio codec pack that comes bundled with several audio codecs, including Opus, FLAC, Ogg Vorbis, Monkey's Audio, MusePack, and Apple ALAC among others. DC-Bass Source Mod will bring Opus audio support not only for WMP, but also for any other DirectShow based media playing program that that doesn't play Opus files, like Media Player Classic Home Cinema. You will be finally able to open Opus audio files with Opus file extension on Windows and play Opus files with Windows Media Player 11/12. DC-Bass Source Mod is simple, and only install a few audio codecs, and is less likely to interfere with anything on your system (nor will install any crapware).
