Below you can find a list of all components that are included in the pack. Please note that not all of these components will be installed. There are some groups of two (or more) components that share a similar purpose. During installation at most one component from each group can be selected. So for example, at most one MPEG-2 decoder can be installed. Furthermore, some of the included components are not needed by the average user, and therefore they will not by installed by default. The installer is fully customizable, so you can let it install exactly those components that suit your specific needs.
Contents of version 6.6.6:
* Media Player Classic Homecinema [version 1.4.2764.0] * Media Player Classic Homecinema [version 1.2.1008.0] * Media Player Classic [version 126.96.36.199 rev. 107]
This is a bundle of 64-bit DirectShow filters that can be used together with 64-bit players, such as Windows Media Center. This pack can co-exist without problems with the regular (32-bit) K-Lite Codec Pack.
The 64-bit versions of Windows can run 32-bit software perfectly fine. So it is recommended to use the regular K-Lite Codec Pack when possible. That one contains more, better and faster decoders. You only need 64-bit filters for use with 64-bit applications.
For use on 64-bit versions of Windows.
For an optimal user experience it is highly recommended to also install one of the 32-bit variants from above, because most software that runs on 64-bit versions of Windows is still 32-bit.
Windows Vista x64 and Windows 7 x64 use a 32-bit version of Windows Media Player by default. Windows Media Center and Windows Explorer are 64-bit applications. That is why you need both 32-bit and 64-bit codecs.
Works on 64-bit versions of Windows XP/2003/Vista/Seven.
