Editor's Review for K-Lite Codec Pack
People will often use a wide range of movie files today, and they need a software package that can handle that. The K-Lite Codec Pack can be used to play many different movie files. Even people that use very rare video file formats should probably be able to use the K-Lite Codec Pack in order to play them, especially with some versions of the K-Lite Codec Pack. The pack is equipped with an advanced installer, and getting it installed onto anyone’s operating system shouldn’t be a problem. The K-Lite Codec Pack has already been downloaded hundreds of thousands of times, and its popularity should only expand.
The K-Lite Codec Pack has four different versions: the Full, Basic, Mega, and Standard. The Basic version will allow users to play the most widely used video formats. The Basic version will certainly get the job done for many users, and despite its designation, it is still a powerful piece of software. Some of the intermediate versions may have additional features that users need, however. To a certain extent, the other versions are modified versions of the Basic version, often with added capabilities.
The K-Lite Codec Pack Standard version has all the same capabilities as the Basic version, but it can also play Media Info Lite and Media Player Classic, which should give users more options when it comes to their videos. Naturally, the Full version of the K-Lite Codec Pack has all the same capabilities as the Standard version, but it is equipped with a GraphStudioNext tool and can play some more obscure audio formats. The Mega version can match the Full version in terms of most of its components, but it also has ACM/VFW codecs for the sake of encoding, along with some other additional capabilities. The K-Lite Codec Pack was truly made to satisfy a wide range of customers.
