Download K-Lite Codec Pack Standard

The Standard variant of the codec pack is what we recommend for the average user. It contains the advanced player MPC-HC plus all the essential codecs needed for multimedia playback. It is small and powerful.

More information about this variant of the codec pack can be found on the contents and changelog pages.

Detailed differences between the four variants of the codec pack can be found on the comparison of abilities and comparison of contents pages.
