STANDARD Codecs (formerly Windows 8 Codecs) is a comprehensive audio and video codec package for Windows 7, 8 and 10. The installer will automatically remove most other popular codec releases from your computer before installing this package.
With this codec package installed you will be able to use any media player, limited only by the players’ capabilities, to play all movies and video clips. You won’t need to make any adjustments or tweaks to enjoy your media content immediately. It does not contain a media player and it does not associate file-types.
Note: STANDARD Codecs only contains LAV filters and VSFilter for subtitles. A more complete codec package is available here: ADVANCED Codecs
