K-Lite Mega Codec Pack 10.8.0 / Update 10.8.2 Build 2014.10.20
Thorough step-by-step setup process
Besides the fact that it comes with Quicktime and RealPlayer codecs, the package also includes Media Player Classic, a great application that can open almost any video format out there with the help of the right codecs.
Installing K-Lite Mega Codec Pack can be a bit difficult for beginners, since all the formats types and names might not seem familiar, but the default settings are enough for those who are just planning to play videos without further customization.
In-depth configuration options available
Furthermore, if one chooses to install Media Player Classic as well, they get the possibility to configure the file associations for both video and audio content.
Considering it is a powerful and advanced tool, less experienced users might have a hard time trying to set up K-Lite Mega Codec Pack, especially when thinking that the package does not include a Help file or detailed descriptions of the built-in utilities.
What sets it apart from other codec packages that simply deploy their content is that it gives users the possibility to fully configure functionality settings for installed components. A codec tweak tool brings up a simple interface, equipped with adjustment categories such as codec and filter management, general and a few others.
To sum it up
All in all, K-Lite Mega Codec Pack is one of the most complex codec packages out there, but the most impressive thing is that it really works seamlessly. Beginners and power users alike can use K-Lite Mega Codec Pack with ease.
