Standard Codecs for Windows 7 / 8 / 10 2.3.9
Enjoy full playback of all of your media files without breaking your system, thanks to this codec pack that supports numerous formats
It supports AMR, MPC, OFR, DIVX, MKA, APE, FLAC, EVO, FLV, M4B, MKV, OGG, OGV, OGM, RMVB and XVID formats, which can be loaded into Windows Media Player seamlessly.
The program is quite simple to install, and novice users don't have to configure any settings to benefit from this codec pack.
The configuration panel is based on a single window with all the main options organized into multiple tabs, and it caters to experienced users. You can set Windows Media Player to 32-bit or 64-bit mode, disable Icaros Explorer properties and LAV splitter, change subtitle parameters, as well as enable MC Sharpen and the default renderer (EVR).
It is possible to select the audio bitstreaming mode, use LAV splitter instead of Microsoft's Splitter for AVI playback, switch from Microsoft codec to LAV codec for H264 in DirectShow Players, and more. The codec list can be saved to the desktop for further scrutiny. You may analyze or render a media file, test a file's integrity (CRC32), as well as rebuild the Windows Media Player library.
This small utility seamlessly integrates into Windows 7 and 8. We have not come across any issues throughout our evaluation, as the codec pack did not cause the OS to hang, crash or display error notifications. When it comes down to it, Standard Codecs for Windows 7 and 8 is a necessary addition to any user who plays media files.
