The Media Player Codec Pack is a video codec package for Windows systems. It enables Windows Media Player and other compatible players to display different types of video files which normally aren't possible to watch due to the lack of major codecs, filters, plug-ins and splitters.

Instead of individually having to download Audio/Video codecs from each author, Media Player Codec Pack gathers all of them in one package enabling playback without any complications. No additional settings are required, but users are capable of changing some of the codecs options.

This is a great solution as now the user will be able to play videos in: XVid, DivX, h.264, Mov, 3GPP, AVI, MKV, OGM, MP4, MPG, MPEG, VOB, DAT, FLV, PS, TS, NUV and audio in: AC3, DTS, AAC, APE, FLAC, TTA, WV, OGG, Vorbis, MO3, IT, XM, S3M, MTM, MOD, UMX.

In this new version users will find new and improved configuration for DivX, Xvid, ffdd, AC3, VP6, and VP7 codecs, allowing to change filters, bit rate and other settings. Other new features include full compatibility with Windows 7, Vista, XP, XP Media Center, 2008, 2003 & 2000 including all x64 versions.
