"I wish it had an on-off feature & the Ffdshow benefits."

June 08, 2010  |  By Mr-J-NYC

 |  Version: Ffdshow 2004

Pros

I like that it's free.

Cons

Imposes on you. You can't control it. You can not turn it off.

Summary

I am not a savvy PC user and I wish I knew how I benefit from this application. I also wish it had an on-off feature to allow me to find out on my own. You are stuck with it. You do not know what benefit you are receiving from it. At times it makes no sense when the icon shows up, so it feels intrusive. Why is the icon "on" when I am not playing any video nor audio files? Can someone please tell me how to control this application? Thanx!

"Does everything you need."

March 22, 2010  |  By engsia

 |  Version: Ffdshow 2004

Pros

Has every codec I've ever needed, not much more I could ask for, cooler name perhaps?

Cons

Seems to have one or two unnecessary codecs, but 'spose it's better than the alternative

August 30, 2008  |  By billysboutin

Pros

I love this product. I download it and use it. I never have to configure it. Whenever my machine gets video errors, I install this product and the problem goes away.

The configuration options are way too confusing. Luckily I never had to configure it.

Get it! Use it!

"near lossless very high quality decompression codecs"

April 14, 2007  |  By terramonkey

 |  Version: Ffdshow 2004

Pros

to use it download, run the setup and install, then restart you computer and then you will probvably never have to touch this again, most good media players route out the required decoding software when you try and play a file, so i like the ease of use and the fact that its maintenance free.

"Best codec pack around"

December 17, 2005  |  By fritzbrown

 |  Version: Ffdshow 2004

Pros

Been using it for years and is the only decoder I have ever needed. I researched many codecs before deciding on this one on the advice of many who know more than myself. I've never had a problem with it and its stingy on resources. Despite what other reviews say, there is no spyware. People should learn more about how codecs work and not download so many as THAT could lead to bad things.

Cons

It hasn't been updated in a while. But it's so good it doesn't need to.
