mp3 codec for Windows Media Player
Full user review
"an old unstable unneeded crack :("
junk, cripples windows media player 11, overwrites system files, an unneeded crack
This is noting but the old radium crack (illegal) of Fraunhofer iis professional codecWell I redoownloaded the file to check if it was updated, it's not it still installs Radium's crack of Fraunhofers acm mp3 codec(l3codecp.acm version 22.214.171.124) this is an unstable old version and may crash WMP or any other application that uses the audio compression manager aka ACM (Like Virtual Dub),
WMP11 comes with a newer legal version of Fraunhofers codec, no need for this junk this overwrites the legal and newe l3codecp.acm v3.4 with the old cracked 1.2 version if you need to access the properties of the already installed and licensed by MS codec make these changes to the registry:
;;begin reg file
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
"l3codecp.acm"="Fraunhofer IIS MPEG Layer-3 Codec (professional)"
;;end reg file

I can't believe cnet is hosting cracks.
There are better alternatives:
1. Use Lame's acm codec.
2. Windows Media Player 10/11/12 includes a licensed version of the codec it's hidden from the user but can be shown by adding a registry key see the previous post or this site:
