Comparison of contents

In the table below you can compare the contents of the different variants of the codec pack.

Do not underestimate the power of the Basic and Standard variants. Those two small variants of the codec pack are already able to play almost everything! For a good overview of the abilities of the the different variants, have a look at the comparison of abilities.

Some of the items that are included in the larger variants serve as alternatives for other included components. That means that during the installation of the codec pack, you can choose between different items for decoding certain audio/video formats.

All variants of the K-Lite Codec Pack are fully customizable. You can specify exactly which components get installed.
