Use This Free Codec Pack To Play More Media Files

The Media Player Codec Pack is not a media player itself but it does install into your media player and may act as a major update. The codecs allow a media player to play files with almost every compression type and file type (audio/visual file types). If your media player is unable to play certain files then installing this codec pack could be just what you need.

It Supports Resolutions useful To 4K

The Media Player Codec Pack is not a standard codec pack that contains features you may see in your next media player update. It is a collection of specially curated codecs that may dramatically expand the usefulness of your media player. The Media Player Codec Pack is also handy if you have not updated your media player in a long while and you are now experiencing problems with video and audio files you are trying to play. The codecs may remove some of the issues you are having with modern video and audio files.

The Solution To A Problem You Didn't Know You Had Yet

The Media Player Codec Pack is compatible with Microsoft Windows 2003 2008 2000 XP Vista 7 8 8.1, 10, and Windows 11. It will install into Microsoft Windows Media Player 10 11 and 12. There is an easy installation option for people that are unsure how to install codecs and there is an advanced option called the "Expert Installation" and that will allow you to tailor how the codecs are installed. If you are having trouble opening and/or using an audio or visual file then you could do far worse than to try this codec pack.


  • Very up to date supports resolutions up to 4K and supports almost every type of audio and video file
  • Easy to install the codecs when compared with how difficult it usually is


  • The codecs may not work for your version of the media player
  • They will not fix grey-square issues or crackling issues when playing video files
