K-lite vs. ACE Mega Codecs Pack

posted in Video Codecs

I`m new here and I have only a little knowledge about codecs. To start off I would want to know, which one of these codecs pack to install. Other options are welcomed too. reply

Generally this would solve most problems for most people I think:

Install xvid video codec
Install divx video codec (the free package is more than enough)
Install AC3 audio codec

With these codecs Windows Media Player should be able to play most files.


Try VideoLAN VLC Media Player which do not require the codecs mentioned as it is a media player with divx/xvid/ac3 and many more formats decoding built-in.

All the mentioned codecs/media players can be downloaded from moviecodec.com reply


Rob Wilkinson / You are a life saver. It was hard to take, that when I went looking for the High Encryption vierson of sp6 and it was no where to be found. I would say I cannot believe Microsoft killed the link but it is indicative of how they think:- Who cares about old customers. Let them buy new again .A sincere and strong thank you to you for having taken the time to post it. It took me two days to find it but what a great feeling when I finally did. I will not again misplace a copy of it. You saved me a lot of money and time.Thanks,Rob reply
