ADVANCED Codecs is an audio and video codec package for Microsoft Windows 7, 8 and 10 operating systems. ADVANCED Codecs contains a full suite of codecs whereas the STANDARD version only contains the LAV filters and xy-VSFilter for subtitles. The installer will automatically remove most other popular codec releases from your computer before installing this concise yet comprehensive package. You won't need to make any adjustments or tweaks to enjoy your media content immediately. Windows Media Player and Media Center will instantly recognize all your files as playable.

With the ADVANCED 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. Streaming video is supported in several formats in all popular web browsers. Advanced codec users have the ability to choose what is installed and where to install it using the public redistributable. After installation you can select to remove specific portions without removing the entire package. You can also re-add the removed items at any time.
