K-Lite Mega Codec Pack 5.0.0

What is K-Lite Mega Codec Pack?

K-Lite Codec Pack is a collection of audio and video codecs for Microsoft Windows that enables the operating system and its software to play various audio and video formats generally not supported by the operating system itself. The Mega edition adds fourteen additional components not present in any other edition. Amongst these components, there is the original Media Player Classic (in addition to MPC-HC), GSpot Codec Information Appliance and additional language files for MPC-HC.


A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The software installer includes 2 files and is usually about 55.54 MB (58,242,800 bytes).
