Compared to some other Codec packs, this is a miserable one. It used to be good, not any more. Seems made for idiots.

Use to love this codec pack, but uninstall, then reinstall the 32 and 64bit copdec pack its kinda tedious, lately i just update the LAV filters, MadVR and Media Player Classic HC.
As previous pack, this one is an audio and video codec package, targeted this time to Microsoft Windows 7 and 8 operating system.
