just some stats for those that think codecpacks are not used any more.
My software is installed aprox. 35,000 times each week. 12,000,000 people have read the Setup and usage
page over the last 3 years. To those that feel my codec releases are loaded with useless codecs, the STANDARD release only contains the LAV filters and xy-vsfilter for subtitles. Not much uselessness there that I can see.
The 12 most prevalent highlights of using my software:
1. Full color thumbnails including FLV's and 10bit MKV's.
(also allows users to select at what point by percentage to grab the thumbnail)
2. Enable the Preview Pane for ALL newly enabled filetypes such as MKV and FLV.
3. Explorer properties are displayed for non native filetypes such as MKV and FLV
4. Updated often - and has update notification builtin
5. Allow use of the PowerDVD decoders for 32bit LiveTV in Media Center.
6. Support playback of MKV files on Extenders and on the Xbox One.
7. Support the use of the Play To function for MKV and FLV files.
8. Support playback of MOD audio files and M4A files containing ALAC
9. Supports playlist creation for use in Media Center
10. Allow users to Enable/Disable codecs installed on their system
11. Functionality such as Win7DSFilterTweaker builtin.
12. Support 'Add to Windows Media Player List' using rightclick on all files such as MKV.
Get everything working with just ONE click.
For most users, simply select the [x] SUGGESTED settings checkbox will get everything working properly in the Windows players. If you have an AVR, a 2nd click will be needed on the Audio TAB to setup bitstreamed audio from the Windows players.
Of course my codecpacks aren't for everyone, but statistics do show there is still a large amount of people that use them successfully.
