There are four different variants of the K-Lite Codec Pack. Ranging from a very small bundle that contains only the most essential decoders to a large and more comprehensive bundle. The global differences between the variants can be found below. Detailed differences can be found on the comparison of abilities and comparison of contents pages.

These codec packs are compatible with Windows Vista/7/8/8.1/10. Old versions also with XP.
The packs include both 32-bit and 64-bit codecs, so they work great on both x86 and x64 variants of Windows!

Basic

Small but extremely powerful!

Already contains everything you need to play all common audio and video file formats.

Supports playback of:

  • AVI, MKV, MP4, FLV, MPEG, MOV, TS, M2TS, WMV, RM, RMVB, OGM, WebM
  • MP3, FLAC, M4A, AAC, OGG, 3GP, AMR, APE, MKA, Opus, Wavpack, Musepack
  • DVD and Blu-ray (after decryption)
  • and many more audio and video formats!

Provides lots of useful functionality, such as:

  • Subtitle display
  • Hardware accelerated video decoding
  • Audio bitstreaming
  • Video thumbnails in Explorer
  • File association options
  • Broken codec detection
  • and much more!

Note: the Basic version does NOT include a player.
You need to use it together with an already installed DirectShow player such as Windows Media Player. For playback issues with WMP please read our F.A.Q. for solutions.

We recommend using K-Lite Standard, which includes MPC-HC, which is a very good player.

Standard

Same as Basic, plus:

  • Media Player Classic Home Cinema (MPC-HC)
    This is an excellent player. Highly recommended!
    It provides high quality playback and many useful options.
  • MediaInfo Lite
    This is a tool for getting details about media files.

This is the recommended variant for the average user. Use this if you don't know what you need. It already contains everything that you need for playback. The extra components that are included in the larger versions provide no benefit for the majority of users.

Full

Same as Standard, plus:

  • MadVR
    An advanced video renderer with high quality upscaling algorithms.
  • DC-Bass Source Mod
    For decoding OptimFrog and Tracker audio files (very rare formats).
  • Plugin for 3D video decoding (H.264 MVC)
    Note: this requires using MPC-HC with madVR, and also a compatible graphics driver. Recent NVIDIA drivers no longer support 3D video (but you could try '3D Fix Manager').

Mega

Same as Full, plus:

  • GraphStudioNext
    A tool for creating and testing DirectShow graphs.
  • A few ACM/VFW codecs such as x264VFW and Lagarith
    This type of codec is used by certain video editing/encoding applications for working with AVI files. For example VirtualDub.
    These codecs are not used or needed for video playback.

    Important note: The K-Lite Codec Pack does not expand the import abilities of professional video editors such as Vegas Movie Studio or Adobe Premiere. Those applications often only support importing a small set of file formats, and do not support using the type of codecs that are included in the codec pack (DirectShow/VFW). Modern editors often only use their own internal codecs or only support external codecs of the Media Foundation type.

And a few extra optional DirectShow filters:

  • ffdshow audio/video processor
    Provides some filters for manipulating the decoded audio and video.
  • ffdshow audio/video decoder
    An alternative choice for LAV Audio/Video decoder.
  • AC3Filter
    An alternative choice for LAV Audio decoder.

Important note: The extra filters mentioned above are not installed by default. We also do not recommend using these outdated filters. They are only included for a tiny group of people who have a reason for using them. We strongly recommend to use the default decoders from the pack. Those are better.

Important note: All the extra functionality included in Mega is only useful for a small group of people. It does not provide playback capability for any additional audio or video formats. If you are only interested in playback, then Full version is already enough for you.

Update

Additional updates for the latest version of the codec pack.

This is not a stand-alone installer. This update requires that the latest version of Basic/Standard/Full/Mega is already installed.

Download Update

Beta

Beta versions contain the latest updates and improvements, but they have not yet been tested as well as normal releases.

For experienced users who like to try out the latest stuff and want to provide feedback.

Beta versions are available for Basic/Standard/Full/Mega.

Old versions

Are you looking for an older version? Those can be found here.

If the latest version gives you a problem, then please report that to us so we can fix it!

A notice to all of our users and supporters

We began the Perian project over 6 years ago. We wanted to simplify viewing your content. Our team has attained that goal and with that in mind, Perian will be retired soon. Our stewardship has been a blast but it's time for all of us to move on.

Vlc Codec Pack Mac Download Windows 10

From the beginning we kept Perian simple. Our preferences were minimal, updating was easy, and we gradually grew the product to add in extras like subtitles and different formats. We've contributed a lot. Today, Perian stands as complete as it ever will be under our stewardship.

There are some projects that we never got to. As an example, we would have liked an official, flexible, and well-documented import API to speed up MKV. We hit a brick wall there. Still, we reached a great stopping point and Perian's installed userbase proves how valuable this tool became to so many people.

Starting 90 days after the final Perian release, we will no longer provide support. We'll wrap up our loose ends, pack up our bags, and move on to new and exciting projects.

Here's what our roadmap looks like:

  • We will soon release the final version of Perian, including all the fixes we've worked on since the last release. It may -- or may not -- work on 10.8.
  • We will post the source code to either Google Code or Github.

Here's what we're looking for from you, our users

  • Download Niceplayer , it's pretty great -- and those folks are doing a fantastic job.
  • Support each other on our Google Group list . We mean this. Just because we aren't helping anymore on a regular basis, that doesn't mean that you can't.
  • Are you a developer? Pick up where we left off. Join us on #perian on irc.freenode.net. Yeah, we're all pretty busy -- so stick around after asking your question. You may have to wait a bit for an answer. Chalk it up to asynchronous tech support.
  • Want to donate? We appreciate the thought. It's hard times these days and your money will make a bigger impact elsewhere. Consider Child's Play , Ronald McDonald House , or the EFF . We no longer accept donations.

A final word: If and when Perian stops working, try looking into VLC or MPlayer OS X. Sure, they're not Perian, but they offer great software still under development.
