K-lite Codec Pack for Audiophiles

From my other blog site. Date written: 102907

UPDATE: V5.7.0 has been out for quite some time.

Scroll to the bottom of this article to know what a codec pack is.

I just downloaded and installed the latest version of the K-lite Codec Pack from and as usual, the more recent versions render clearer audio than the previous ones. As of September 2K7, I have used versions of this codec pack for three months or so and have experienced no problems so far. (This is to be installed on TOP of your audio drivers for integrated sound as I have not read that you have to uninstall anything. Take note that I have no experience using this pack with sound cards as I have only integrated audio.)

It is free to download.

As rigs have too many variables (tweaks, driver versions, hardware makeup, etc), one system may not behave like another one, but as stated, mine works perfectly with these.

Thanks to Lyndon for the heads-up on this one. While not really a pro, to a certain extent I am an audiophile and I appreciate the additional sound variations that before were unclear or were totally nonexistent. Thanks man!


K-Lite Codec Pack is a collection of codecs and related tools. Codecs are required to encode and/or decode (play) audio and video. The K-Lite Codec Pack is designed as a user-friendly solution for playing all your movie files. With the K-Lite Codec Pack you should be able to play 99% of all the movies that you download from the internet.

In addition, the newer versions have this ability to detect and delete (they show you a pop-up window) corrupt codec registry entries:
