Codec Guide, your source for quality codecs.

Contents of K-Lite Mega Codec Pack

Below you can find a list of all components that are included in the pack. The installer is fully customizable, so you can let it install exactly those components that suit your specific needs.

Please note that not all of these components are actually installed by default. Some of the components are included as an alternative choice for components that are used by default. The alternative choices are: ffdshow, AC3Filter, and Xvid. Those components are not installed unless you explicitly select them during installation. By default the codec pack uses the LAV Filters. That is of course also what we recommend to use.
