A lot of people use their computer to play music or watch movies, but occasionally these come in formats that are not natively supported by Windows, so specialized codecs are required. For instance, users can rely on Advanced Codecs for Windows 7 / 8.1 / 10 to make sure they can play a wide range of multimedia files without needing any additional apps.

Select elements you want installed on your system

If users are familiar with codecs and they are confident they can identify the ones they require, they can choose the Custom installation mode. On the other hand, beginners are strongly advised to go with the Complete mode and install all the available codecs otherwise they might overlook important ones.

After installing Advanced Codecs for Windows 7 / 8.1 / 10, users who prefer MKV over other formats are able to get a glimpse of the contents of their files due to the displayed thumbnails – they are also created for other non-native formats, such as FLV.

Configure codecs for an enhanced multimedia experience

Those who like to have complete control over the applications installed on their computer can disable various codecs and enable them at a later time via an intuitive tabbed interface.

It needs to be mentioned that Advanced Codecs for Windows 7 / 8.1 / 10 can be installed on all editions of Windows 7 and 8, be they x86 or x64 systems.

To end with

ADVANCED Codecs is an excellent collection of free codecs for Windows users that makes it possible to playback virtually any type of video or audio file format available on the Internet today.

Originally useful for users relying on Windows Media Player, the collection of codecs has grown over the years to become one of the most comprehensive codec packs available as a freeware download.

Installing the codecs with custom options

Installing ADVANCED Codecs is a simple task, guiding you through installation with the option to go standard or custom. The latter giving you the option to install only the codecs you want or require. Once installed, you can configure its components through its easy Settings Application.

Once you've installed the pack, you can access its settings which arranges its options into different tabs from general configuration options to different audio and video settings. The first option available is the option to select between 32-bit and 64-bit Windows Media Player. Further to the right is the ability to control subtitles with DirectVocSub (default), FFDshow decoder, etc. The other video options are pretty self-explanatory.

Support for high definition audio streams

A really interesting feature of ADVANCED Codecs is the Audio tab; here you can select between TrueHD/DTS, AC3 bitstreaming and a speaker configuration tool allowing users to choose between some surround sound options like 2.0, 3.0, 5.1, 7.1, etc.

The rest of ADVANCED Codecs' settings are the configuration of different codecs like H264/5, MKV, OGG, MP4, etc.
