"Only Codec Pack I've tried that works!"

January 26, 2015  |  By maxb

 |  Version: K-lite Codec Pack Basic 9.9.5

Pros

Only Codec Pack I've tried that works! I've tried almost every codec pack on download.com and after installing them, I found that Windows Media player either didn't play the file I was trying to play or returned an error message and deactivated all codecs installed that where not from Microsoft. This codec pack allows me to play all my files including MKV, not only in Windows Media Player, but VLC player and in Cyberlink DVD, miraculously all my media players know play all my files. You can't play DVD's in Windows Media player though, Microsoft won't let you unless you upgrade from Windows 8.1 to 8.1 Pro, even with this codec pack!

Cons

None that I can see! Direct download didn't try to install malware at all!

In conclusion I say get this for your computer!

"Just installed 10.0.0 - Opt-Out of extras is there"

 |  Version: K-lite Codec Pack Basic 9.9.5

Pros

Just installed 10.0.0 - Opt-Out of extras is there during the installation process.

I downloaded it to get FLAC working on WMP 11 on XP. All good :)

Cons

I had to go to the developer's website to get version 10.0.0

"Toolbar Alert!"

June 30, 2013  |  By robert5583

 |  Version: K-lite Codec Pack Basic 9.9.5

Pros

It works well.

Cons

Installed a 'sweetpacks' toolbar on my Firefox & Explorer browsers.
Also changed my homepage to the 'sweetpacks' homepage.
And it installed a 'sweetpacks' updater.

There was no mention of this toolbar or an opt-out button during the installation process.

Beware!

Summary

I gave this the lowest rating possible because of the toolbar and the underhanded way it was installed without permission.
