Download Codecs For Windows Media Player 11

Posted on

ADVANCED Codecs 15.1.0. ADVANCED Codecs is a free audio and video codec package that contains a full suite of codecs. Also available as a portable 32-Bit or 64-Bit app and as a Standard package. This installer will automatically remove most other popular codec releases from your computer before installing this concise yet comprehensive package.

STANDARD Codecs for Windows 10.
Offered for the 1st time ever; Portable Codecs, without an installer.

Recently, there has been a major re-write of the GUI itself and the filters they control. Support for MKV on the xbox360 was dropped along with the removal of several deprecated codecs and the SetACL dependency.
I hope you enjoy these new releases and can find the time to send a small donation in support of continued maintenance into the future.
ABOUT VIRUS DETECTION: It is a false positive and you can READ HERE on how to handle it.
This is mostly fixed and no longer an issue in current releases.
The Save and Restore settings feature is automated and also controlled by the commandline.
To have your settings restored automatically during an upgrade, all you need to do is [Save ALL Settings]
The checkboxes involved are correctly set by default to allow automatic upgrade settings restoration.
Top 10 features of the recent Settings Application rewrite:
1. Remove all unnecessary code associated with the deprecated codec removal
2. Re-organize the entire layout to be more intuitive, user friendly and visually appealing
3. Allow the user to click anywhere on the App to relocate the Settings Application on the screen
4. Add an Always On Top feature to keep the Settings Application in view
5. Activate the previous instance of the Settings Application when trying to open a new instance
6. Require Administrative privileges upon startup eliminating the need to rightclick
7. All user accounts are automatically setup and can be updated with a single click on the Misc TAB
8. Colorize and capitalize important functions to promote their significance
9. Automatically resize the App relative to the display resolution and use high quality text
10. Add a Save Restore settings feature to seamlessly return to a previous setup
All functions are performed instantaneously. The moment you select something, the action is performed.
If you ever find yourself broken, simply press the [RESET ALL] button to return to a just installed state.
The ADVANCED release contains a full suite of decoders with a GUI controller for the installed codecs.
The STANDARD codec release only contains LAV filters and VSFilter with a GUI giving full control.

The following are a few filetypes enabled and supported by the installation of Shark007 Codecs.

All of the above filetypes can be queued to the Windows Media Player Playlist using a right-click.

The Settings Application is 100% UAC compliant.
The Application allows each user to maintain individual codec settings while at the same time seamlessly integrating any administrative commands directly into the users account. New users accounts are detected upon opening the Application and automatically inherit the Administrators settings.

Codecs have been a problem for most users at one time or another. This is because there has never been an 'out of the box' working solution that the average computer user could install and just have everything work properly from the beginning. There are several decent codec package solutions out there, but none of them did everything I wanted. I was always in need of a tweak, adjustment, or even a re-installation just to get the codecs I needed/wanted and most of the time, the file still didn't play properly. This frustration was the basis for me to begin making a codecpack that works with ALL players.

The installer will automatically remove most other popular codec releases from your computer before installing this concise yet comprehensive windows media center setup package. For a list of all things automatically uninstalled by the installer, Click Here. After installation completes, check the box for [x] WMP suggested settings and Windows Media Player and Media Center will instantly recognize all your files as playable.

It does not contain a media player and it does not associate file-types. With the STANDARD 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. Standard 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.

The STANDARD release only contains 2 codecs, LAV filters and VSFilter for subtitles.

If you are using Windows 10, and you are looking for extra codecs for use in the standard Windows apps such as Movies&TV or Photo Viewer, then you need Media Foundation codecs.

This package is for those who have the N or KN edition of Windows. These are special variants for the European and Korean markets. The difference with regular editions of Windows is that they do not include any multimedia players from Microsoft.


This package will install components such as Windows Media Player, Enhanced Video Renderer (EVR), Media Foundation codecs, and the Windows Media format codecs.

EVR is used by many video players including MPC-HC.
Media Foundation is used by web browsers and a lot of games.

This package installs all the codecs and runtimes that are required for playing the various Windows Media formats, such as .wmv and .wma files.

These codecs are normally already included with Windows as part of Windows Media Player. So you should normally only need this package if you have removed Windows Media Player or if you are using the special European N or Korean KN edition of Windows that does not include WMP.

Version 11 ~ 9.4 MB ~ Only for Windows XP / 2003 / Vista
