It is certainly a disturbing experience when your player refuses to play a certain movie. That is because codecs are essential when you want to play media files. However, this whole thing about codecs may sound a little out-of-this-world for many users. K-lite Codec Pack can help you avoid this type of issue by delivering most common codecs in a single bundle.

Most users will not need to deal with this application’s interface for it to work properly. Thus, it is ideal for novices. However, more experienced users can configure the filters according to their exact needs. Besides, you do not need to install all the codecs contained in the pack because picking the desired ones is part of the installing process.

Not only Windows Media Player but also other popular players will work with the codecs provided with no difficulty at all. Unfortunately, some players may not use the codecs to play media contents properly.

In general, K-lite Codec Pack is very comprehensive. I have been using it for years facing very few incompatibility issues. The installation package is really very light in comparison with the amount of information contained in it. Therefore, in my opinion, installing this pack is highly recommended.
