What is MyFreeCodec?

MyFree Codec contains files which are necessary to play various media files from your device to Samsung Kies. It is automatically installed when upgrading or installing Samsung Kies. KIES utilizes the playing functionality and if it is not installed then you might experience errors when using various features or playing some media files, typically AVI or MPEGs or other movie or audio files.

If you notice the play button is disabled or cannot play some media files when you add music or video files in Kies then most likely the MyFree Codec Pack is not properly installed. When you open files from the Samsung mobile device's memory card in Kies, there should be an option for you to install MyFree Codec


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 main program executable is FF_MPEG.DLL. The software installer includes 37 files and is usually about 10.47 MB (10,979,995 bytes).

Note that the path quoted above, C:\Program Files\myfree codec\1.0b beta\FF_MPEG.DLL , is actually C:\Program Files (x86)\myfree codec\1.0b beta\FF_MPEG.DLL for Windows 7.

When you download Kies and install it on your PC for the first time, MyFree Codec Pack 1.0b is already included in the installation file. If you failed to install it, all you need to do is to open Samsung Kies folder in your hard drive and search for: MyFreeCodecPack.

I think it's really problematic we have to download this myfreecodec to be able to use the video imports from pc to samsung / samsung kies, if i blue tooth my videos they play fine but if i try and import them via samsung kies i get this stupid message to download a codec i know i don't need because the videos play.
