Here’s how to refresh your library and find your missing tracks.

CCCP – Combined Community Codec Pack

Posted on April 18, 2011. Filed under: Freeware/Shareware, MP3, Music, Sound, Utilities | Tags: , , , , , , , |

CCCP – Combined Community Codec Pack is not a communist plot.  Really.  More of a musical plot.

” CCCP was created to replace the video playback packs provided by several anime fansub groups in favor of a single reliable pack capable of decoding practically any groups’ files – without breaking compatibility for other formats. Since then it has grown into a pack that can decode more or less anything that you will run into during your travels on the internet.”

“Using CCCP is simple. Uninstall all codec packs and codecs first. Then just download the installer and run it. Leave all options untouched unless you know what you’re doing….We include one player and that’s the one we recommend: Media Player Classic – HomeCinema (MPC-HC). It’s very well tested, reliable and actively maintained by another team of developers. Of course, if you want to keep using AwesomePlayer 12.3, feel free. Since we install filters that any DirectShow player can use, most other players will work fine with the CCCP.”
