New codecs about?

Post by Namarie » Sat Apr 28, 2018 9:23 am

Recently more and more tv episodes refuses to play with Win 10 mediaplayer, getting errors about unable to play, and out of memory. Last was the Genius series.

But, VLC player works without a hitch. Are there new codecs about to download to get WMP to work properly again?

Download K-Codec Pack. It's free.

You can also try to get Windows 10 Media Player to get the missing codecs, see here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/hel ... oes-not-pl

If you want to install K-Lite Codec Pack, read more about it at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/K-Lite_Codec_Pack or https://www.videohelp.com/software/K-Li ... on-history or http://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details ... _full.html

But there are also other codecs you may want to try, see a list here (scroll down): https://www.videohelp.com/software/sect ... rby=Rating One of the more popular is LAV Filters, a set of open-source DirectShow filters based on FFmpeg, see https://www.videohelp.com/software/LAV-Filters or http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=156191

An other list you find at http://www.majorgeeks.com/mg/sortname/codecs.html There they like ADVANCED Codecs, see http://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/win7codecs.html
