Dear aaaarrghh.com, I've heard of (& even sometimes used) video clip players lượt thích VLC when Windows Media Player prompts me to lớn download "new codecs", but I've also heard people talk about codec packs like K-Lite, Shark007, & CCCPhường. What exactly are these codec packs and what vì chưng they do? Are they better than just using something like VLC, and if so, which one should I use?

Sincerely, Confused About Codecs

Note: This post really applies lớn Windows only. Mac users have a codec pack called Perian which works great, và is useful if you want khổng lồ watch videos in QuickTime or iTunes rather than VLC.

What Are Codec Packs?

A codec is a computer program that can encode or decode video. Different codecs work for different types of Clip. Some codecs ship with your computer (for example, your computer can play DivX-encoded files—which you'll often see with an AVI extension—out of the box), while others may not (for example, your operating system will often have problems playing H.264 đoạn Clip, often with the MKV tệp tin extension, without some extra effort on your part). If you tải về a đoạn Clip your computer can't play, it will often ask you lớn download & install the correct codec, so your default truyền thông media player can play it.

Codec packs are pieces of software that attempt lớn make the process easier by installing a number of different codecs at once, so you don't have sầu to khuyễn mãi giảm giá with finding each one individually. Sounds awesome, right? Unfortunately, they tover to cause more problems than they solve sầu, conflicting with other programs, not khổng lồ mention sometimes being hotbeds for adware and/or spyware. For the majority of people, we don't recommkết thúc using them.

And before you write in the comments "I use K-Lite/Shark007/whatever and never had any problems! N00bs!" I'll say: That's fine. Just because you haven't doesn't mean nobody toàn thân has, though. In fact, a lot of people have. You're lucky, and that's fine, but that doesn't change the fact that we, and many others, bởi not recommend installing codec packs (except for some fringe cases, noted below).

So What Should I Use?

Luckily, most of the best video players out there—like the popular VLC or our personal favorite, PotPlayer—have sầu their own self-contained sets of codecs, that won't conflict with anything on your system, nor vị they require any kind of separate management or updating on your part. Generally, they'll play any Clip file you run into lớn, và are by far the easiest way khổng lồ get full Clip compatibility on your machine.

That said, there are a few exceptions where codec packs might be necessary:

If you rely on subtitles. Most fansubbed Anime fans find that the combination of MPCHC & a codec pachồng has good subtitle support, so it's popular amuốn those groups. We still recommover trying something lượt thích PotPlayer first—it's likely that they use it as an alternative sầu to lớn the subtitle-challenged VLC—but if a standalone player causes you a lot of subtitle-related grief, MPCHC coupled with a codec paông chồng is worth a shot.

That leaves one last question: Which one to use? If you have to use a codec pack, we recommover using a minimal one like K-Lite Basic or Combined Community Codec Paông xã (CCCP). They're simple, only install a few codecs, and is less likely khổng lồ interfere with anything on your system (nor will they install any crapware). Hopefully, they'll work out of the box & won't cause you any problems. K-Lite Basic has fewer codecs, but doesn't come with Media Player Classic trang chủ Cinema, so it's the first I would try if you're just looking for basic support in Windows Media Player. CCCPhường is probably the better choice if you want lớn use MPCHC.

As you can see, it isn't as black-and-White as a lot of people make it out khổng lồ be. We don't love the idea of codec packs, & as we said before, we don't recommover them to lớn most users. But, we underst& that there are a few situations in which you'll need them if you're unwilling lớn visit the alternatives. Hopefully this clears up some confusion.
