Windows 10 has been officially released two days ago and statistics show that a lot of you are already using it.
The current version of the K-Lite Codec Pack is already fully compatible with Windows 10. Nevertheless, next version will bring a few useful improvements. For example some changes to make the file assocation behavior of Win10 less annoying. And some extra tweaks. Ideas and suggestions are welcome.
If you are having problems with video playback on Windows 10, then it is most likely because of your graphics or sound driver. Visit our forum if you have any problems and need help. We expect hardware manufacturers to improve and fix their drivers in the coming weeks. Windows 10 should update them automatically.
Tip: Microsoft has released a tool that you can use to prevent faulty drivers from being re-installed by Windows Update. You can get it HERE.

DTS-HD Master Audio
Tuesday March 24th 2015
Good news. The LAV Audio decoder included in the latest version of the K-Lite Codec Pack now supports decoding DTS-HD Master Audio. Previously no free or open source decoder existed for that audio format.
As usual K-Lite is the first pack to offer this new functionality. Other packs and players like VLC are (much) slower to update.
A big thanks goes to foo86 (developer of dcadec) and Hendrik Leppkes (developer of LAV Filters) for making this possible.

NVIDIA 344.11 driver bug
Tuesday September 23rd 2014
The latest NVIDIA graphics driver has a bug that can cause playback to fail for files that contain 10-bit H.264 video. This type of video is not very common, it is mostly only used for Anime videos. There is a simple workaround to avoid the problem: disable the P010 output format in the settings of LAV Video decoder (or ffdshow if you still use that). Update: the 344.48 and newer drivers works again with EVR, but is still broken with a few other renderers.
Tips for improving video quality
Thursday August 15th 2013
This is a tip for anyone who has an Intel or AMD/ATI graphics card. These manufacturers enable certain video 'enhancement' features by default in their drivers. The problem is that those features actually reduce quality instead of making things better.

This is a useful little tool that allows you to configure your preferred DirectShow filters for decoding for example H.264, MPEG-4 and VC-1 video in Windows 7 and 8. This makes it possible to use third party decoders instead of the native decoders that come with Windows.
