Media Player Codec Pack is a set of media player updates for use by owners of Windows PCs.

Playing media on your computer isn't quite as easy as you might expect. As hardware changes and the video industry adapts, new plug-ins and codecs are required. Hunting them down one by one is not just difficult, but can sometimes feel completely impossible. Fortunately, you can grab a major codec pack and let all the work be done for you. You'll have to download these packs as they are released, but you'll eventually get to the point where this becomes a regular part of your media consumption process.

The benefit of downloading a codec pack is that it gathers a fair number of updates for you all at once. This includes not only new protocols you might need to play some forms of media, but also a few updates that will keep your media player running smoothly. A good update should help you to adapt to any changes in media with ease, allowing you to continue watching your favorite clips without any problems. As a bonus, this particular update helps you update your player to support 4K resolutions - something that definitely needs to be done if your media player hasn't been updated in some time.

This particular codec update does a lot of the groundwork necessary to bring your media player up to date. It's not going to make any major changes that you can see to the program, but it does a great deal of work under the hood. If you haven't updated your media player in quite some time or you simply need to get ready for 4K, this is a good download for you.
