STANDARD Codecs is an easy way to install all main stream codecs to play movie and music.
The following filetypes are enabled and SUPPORTED by the installation of the STANDARD Codecs.amr | mpc | ofr | divx | mka | ape | flac | evo | flv | m4b | mkv | ogg | ogv | ogm | rmvb | xvid
All of the above filetypes can be queued to the Windows Media Player Playlist using a right-click.
Concerning S/PDIF, digital, optical and HDMI: The administrator and a regular user are different users and each must setup the Audio TAB for FFDshow pass-through. At no time should anyone have a need to click the leftside of the Audio TAB manually; it uses system detection.
The codec packs contains a Settings Application to use in conjunction with your windows media center setup which will enable each user to choose different splitters and decoders for specific filetypes. The application will also allow you to choose from 10 different speaker configurations from 'same as input' and all the way up to full 7.1 channel output.
