x64Components Standalone Installer



Current releases introduce 3D decoding of files, ISO's and disks.
3D decoding is reported by LAV Video as, Active Decoder: msdk mvc

Although a separate 64bit installer is being maintained for your convenience,
this gets installed by the 32bit installer on all 64bit systems.

 UHD / H265 / HEVC / MVC, H264 codecs are available to all players.

The following quotations are from a person with vast multimedia experience.

"I'd suspect that if I put it to the test I'd find that K-Lite, for example, had done more damage (as measured by crash reports) than some notable percentage of actual outright malware."

"At one point 7 of the top 10 crashes in multimedia on Windows lead squarely to problems induced by K-Lite."

"...the fact remains that they (K-Lite) have been one of the most toxic projects ever released for Windows in any form."

The above quotations encapsulate what prompted me to produce my own codec packs.

K-Lite blatantly installs MALWARE.
According to the K-Lite author, if malware got installed, it is your own fault!


Things the Shark pack does that other packs cannot do . . .


1. Full color thumbnails including FLV's and 10bit MKV's.
(also allows users to select at what point by percentage to grab the thumbnail)
2. Enable the Preview Pane for ALL newly enabled filetypes such as MKV and FLV.
3. Explorer properties are displayed for non native filetypes such as MKV and FLV
4. Updated often - and has update notification builtin
5. Allow use of the PowerDVD decoders for 32bit LiveTV in Media Center.
6. Support playback of MKV files on Extenders and on the Xbox One.
7. Support use of the LAV filters with the Play To function for MKV files.
8.
Support playback of MOD audio files and M4A files containing ALAC
9. Supports playlist creation for use in Media Center
10. Allow users to Enable/Disable codecs installed on their system
11. Functionality such as Win7DSFilterTweaker builtin.
12. Support 'Add to Windows Media Player List' using rightclick on all files such as MKV.

 

64bit Settings Application

 

If you decide to choose the x64 version of Windows Media Player as your default player,
Windows Explorer will automatically differentiate between the 2 media players as depicted below.



The Settings Application is 100% UAC compliant.
Restricted access is enforced. (User Account Control)

The Application allows each user to maintain individual codec settings while at the same time seamlessly integrating any administrative commands directly into the users account. New users accounts are detected upon opening the Application and automatically inherit the Administrators settings.

Adding files to the Windows Media Player Playlist

On the Help TAB of the Settings Application is a button to allow you to choose Windows Media Player Filetype Associations. This buttons functionality is GLOBAL and is not restricted to the 32bit environment. Once you have used this button, you can Enqueue newly associated filetypes to the Windows Media Player Playlist as depicted below. It also sets up Media Center to utilize the associations for seamless playback in that player also. If for some reason this doesn't work for you, go back to the associations button, click No twice, consecutively, then select Yes. No reboot is required.

 
This will also work for audio files such as FLAC, APE or musepack.
