Windows 10 April 2018 Update (build 1803)

Tuesday May 1st 2018

A tip for those who have already updated to the latest build of Windows: a lot of things are reset to default values when installing big Windows updates. For example thumbnail settings and various codec related tweaks.
We recommend to run the K-Lite installer again to re-apply your preferred settings. It is not needed to uninstall first. If you have made any additional customizations with the Codec Tweak Tool, then you need to redo those tweaks as well.

HEVC codec

The K-Lite Codec Pack provides full decoding support for the new HEVC video format (also known as H.265). It even has DXVA2 hardware acceleration in combination with modern graphics cards such as the AMD Fury/Nano, AMD RX 470/480/5xx, AMD Vega, NVIDIA GTX 950/960, NVIDIA GTX 1060/1070/1080, and Intel Kaby Lake (and newer) GPUs.
