Softpedia Editor's Review for K-Lite Codec Pack Full
A codec pack that will give you the ability to play 99% of all the movies that you download from the internet
Written by Bogdan Popa on February 1st, 2012
Some codec packs are far from being friendly with computers, as they tend to slow down Windows, break down multimedia files and make the whole movie watching experience a nuisance. This is why an efficient software has to be chosen, one that does exactly what it is supposed to without additional and unnecessary features.
Simply put, this is exactly what K-Lite Codec Pack Full is meant to do. This is one of the most efficient codec packs out there that is not only delivered as a very light package but is also impressively friendly with computer resources.
Installing it is quite easy, unless one is an expert who really enjoys toying around with the advanced settings. K-Lite has numerous advanced customization options but novices are advised not to spend too much time on this section, as they might erroneously modify some options and break the entire process.
If everything goes well and K-Lite Codec Pack Full is successfully installed, users will be able to open any multimedia files stored on their computers, without any quality loss. Furthermore, it works like a breeze from the first run, without major changes to its default settings, which is a clear indication that beginners and those who want a codec that just works have chosen the right package.
Expert have the possibility to configure the audio and video decoders, as well as the DirectVobSub, in an attempt to obtain a top-notch experience when it comes to playing multimedia files.
All these considered, K-Lite Codec Pack should be the first on everyone's list when it comes to codec packages. It is light, freeware, easy to use and gets along perfectly even with slower computers.
