"Does what it says but BE AWARE of devious install."

May 23, 2014  |  By Libra2u2

 |  Version: K-Lite Mega Codec Pack 10.5.0

Pros

Works well
Free

Cons

Tries to load about five programs before installing - then another in between! I caught them all (I hope). I ran Avira and Malwarebytes. Neither detected anything.

Summary

This is a sneaky developer. I guess you get what you pay for,m and more in this case.

K-Lite normally works well using its proprietary media player.

Depending on which version of Microsoft Windows you have, you may need to upgrade or downgrade K-Lite version.

"Stay Away! Viruses!"

March 29, 2013  |  By silentthunder017

 |  Version: K-Lite Mega Codec Pack 9.8

Pros

It installs Classic Media Player which will play the files.

Cons

The installer installed 3 viruses before the K-Lite installer ever ran. 1 was a online backup vault, 2 was a media info tool for web browsers, and 3 was a quick easy saver of some sort. When checked they all popped as viruses, and are designated viruses by many online communities.

The codecs will not allow Mpeg-2 files to play in WMP for Win 7 which is what I wanted it for.

It completely messed up all media thumbnails. All my computer will display now is icons for the file type.

Summary

Stay Away from version 9.8. It did install 3 verified viruses before the installer for K-Lite itself ever ran. I've used past versions of this, and it was great. However, now it doesn't do what it's supposed to do in anything except Media Player classic.

"I was unable to play most video formats. Now I can."

January 14, 2013  |  By Browserkid

 |  Version: K-Lite Mega Codec Pack 9.6.5

Pros

Easy to install using all the default settings. I was unable to play most video formats on my Acer Aspire One netbook with Windows 7 Starter. Those which did play often had no sound. Installing other codec packs cause squawking noises instead of sound. I installed you K-Lite Mega Codec Pack and now everything works perfectly. I haven't found a format to date which doesn't play correctly. I installed Media Player codec pack on my Windows Vista system which works fine but didn't work on the netbook. Now, with the Mega Codec Pack all is well.

Cons

I didn't understand the significance of all the settings options so I used the defaults and it works fine up to now.

Summary

Very good package.

"LORD help me..."

January 01, 2013  |  By fujitsulover

 |  Version: K-Lite Mega Codec Pack 9.6.5

Pros

It plays my favorite dual-layer DVD perfect!

Cons

It is a little complicated to adjust all the outstanding settings!

Summary

I feel that I am bless with so much. This program allows me to play even dual-layer 8.5 gigabyte discs without the degradation of quality. As I sit here listening to my favorite music dual-layer DVD while typing this review, I feel like the speaker is right there in the same room as I am. The last I looked at the frame quality, it looks crisp and clear without jagged-edges. It is a miracle that this program is free.
