What is K-Lite Codec Pack? The short answer is that it is a collection of codecs, filters and tools. Thanks to all the codecs that are included in this pack, you really shouldn’t have any problems playing audio and video files. And thanks to the filters that are included in this pack, you really shouldn’t have any problems encoding and decoding audio and video formats.

What is K-Lite Codec Pack Full? It is one of 4 different K-Lite Codec Pack editions. The baby in the range in K-Lite Codec Pack Basic, which contains all the codecs that are required to play common video formats. The "recommended for most people" version is K-Lite Codec Pack Standard, which features more filters than the Basic edition and also comes with Media Player Classic Home Cinema and the Codec Tweak Tool. The third edition is K-Lite Codec Pack Full, which comes with more filters and the GraphStudioNext tool. Last but not least, K-Lite Codec Pack Mega is the top-of-the-line and feature-complete edition that includes all the codecs, all the filters and all the tools.

If you don’t know which version to choose, then perhaps a chart that clearly presents the differences between these 4 editions might come in handy. Like this contents chart that presents what’s included in each edition; or this abilities chart that presents all the formats that each edition supports.

As you can see from the Quick Look video that accompanies this article, a simple setup wizard will guide you through all the steps you need to take to install K-Lite Codec Pack Full on a PC that runs Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 or 8.1, and Windows 10. Should the setup wizard detect a codec that’s known to cause crashes, it will ask you to disable it. And should it detect leftovers from other codec installations, it will ask you to remove them.

K-Lite Codec Pack is freeware. No matter which edition you choose to get, you can get it for free.

K-Lite Codec Pack is the 3rd most feature-rich version in the series. It has more than the Basic and Standard editions, but not as much as the Mega edition.


The setup wizard lets you extensively customize the installation process. K-Lite Codec Pack Full includes all the codecs, filters and tools from the Basic and Standard Edition and some extras. K-Lite Codec Pack Full is freeware.


None that I could think of.
