STANDARD Codecs Review

Provides support for most common video codecs and files
A review of STANDARD Codecs by Fernando Ortega

STANDARD Codecs is a package of a number of different (and popular) audio and video codecs for Windows users.

As most codec packs do, STANDARD Codecs will provide you with the capability of playing many different video and audio formats not typically supported on Windows. This can include anything from MKV to XVID and more.

STANDARD Codecs also provides you with the relevant tools to view thumbnails inside of your media folders where previously only icons were shown.

Overall, this small tool enhances Windows' media capabilities by making it easy to view and play various multimedia formats.

STANDARD Codecs features and highlights:
  • Full color thumbnails including FLVs and 10bit MKVs
  • Allows users to select at what point by percentage to grab the thumbnail
  • Enable the Preview Pane for ALL newly enabled file-types such as MKV and FLV.
  • Explorer properties are displayed for non native file-types such as MKV and FLV
  • Updated often - and has update notification built-in
  • Allow use of the PDVD12 decoders for 32bit LiveTV
  • Supports the use of Xbox360 as Extenders to playback MKV files
  • Allows single click setup of Bitstreamed Audio
  • Support playback of MOD audio files and M4A files containing ALAC
  • Supports playlist creation for use in Media Center
  • Allow users to Enable/Disable codecs installed on their system
  • Functionality such as Win7DSFilterTweaker built-in.
  • Supports "Add to Windows Media Player List" using right-click on all files such as MKV
