About the software

Media Player Codec Pack is a simple installer that combines all major codecs, filters, and plug-ins for use in all major media players.

The Media Player Codec Pack is a software package that combines encoder and decoder codecs for video and audio playback in one easy-to-use installer. It differs from others by featuring a diverse performance algorithm and hardware database, matching the best settings based on operating system version and CPU and GPU features.

A codec is a piece of software on either a device or computer capable of decoding or encoding video and audio data from files, streams, and broadcasts. The word Codec is a portmanteau of ‘compressor-decompressor’. Depending on its function, a codec will sometimes be described as a splitter, reader, decoder, encoder, or filter.
