CCCP – Combined Community Codec Pack

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.”

If your Windows Media Player refuses to handle DVDs and other video or audio formats, this is a good alternative that’s easy to install and use.

Aestetically is identical to version 6.4 and has the same lightness in terms of RAM occupation, but it has much more usefull functions. Features: with ‘right’ and ‘left’ keys it’s possible to go forward/backward of one single frame; with ‘Ctrl + right’/’left’ it’s possible to skip one predefinite quantity of frames; with ‘Ctrl + up’ it’s possible to change faster the speed of reproduction; it’s possible to visualize with media player Quicktime and RealMedia movies (but that programs must be installed); in full screen modality it’s possible to show a scroll bar putting the mouse in the lower portion of the screen; in full screen it’s possible to do the redimension images and adopt a cinema format or a TV format; it work as a DVD player too; keys are completely customizable; it can show subtitles.

CNET Editor’s Note: Some anti-virus software flag this product as a potential threat. We have re-tested it and based on our process believe it’s clean.”
