Installer releases and 32bit versions have been discontinued.
ADVANCED Codecs includes support for many popular file formats, including AVI, MP4, MKV, and FLV, among others.
The codecs in the pack are designed to work with a wide range of media players and other software, and they are frequently updated to ensure compatibility with the latest versions of Windows and other software.
The pack is developed by Shark007
, who is known for creating high-quality codec packs and other tools for Windows users.
The recent rewrite of the Settings Application has focused on improving the user experience and making the application more efficient and reliable.
Some of the key features include a more intuitive and visually appealing layout, the ability to move the application around on the screen, an Always On Top feature to keep it in view, the ability to propagate codec settings to all user accounts with a single click, and a Save | Restore settings feature to allow users to easily return to a previous setup.
The application also requires Administrative privileges upon startup and includes a RESET ALL button to allow users to return to a just installed state in case of any issues.
Overall, it sounds like the rewrite has made the application more user-friendly and efficient.
