K-lite codec is a collection of codecs that enable the OS to play various video and audio formats not supported by the os itself.The codec comes in various edition,the basic,standard,full and mega.The basic and the standard are the earliest release and dont support all audio and video formats...The introduction of the mega and full editions changed everything,both of them support the same format with a very small unnoticable difference.K-lite in the past included bs package until it was later supplimented with an adware package.


1.Run the codec as admin and click next to continue with the installation

2.choose the mode you want to install the codecs then click next.

3.select the components to be associated with the codecs then press next(note the codec will still work in default)

4.The additional tasks and options may be helpful if have specific installation demands.click next.

5.Choose one or both files to open the videos or audios but since the codecs help windows media il choose windows media player alone.click next

6.This part helps the codec to know which kind of files it will be required to open.Select all for both video and audio inorder for the codec to work at its full capacity.click next

7.choose on the sound output you have and click next.

8.If you are satisfied and ready to install click instal

9.Wait for a while for the installation to complete.

10.Once done click finish or if you want to edit the configuration mark run tweak tool then click finish.

Now you can open any video or audio you want.


A new installation of windows alway return all files to default and trying to open any video file will be met with an error.The codecs remove this error enabling windows media players to open any video or audio format.I would rank this the best codec though it only supports windows.


  • Helps windows media player open many files
  • The full and mega editions open every file
  • the codecs are free of charge


  • Only supports windows operating systems
