[Shark007's] Portable Codecs

#1 Post by Shark007 » Sat Feb 13, 2021 9:20 am

Portable Codec Solutions including a powerful GUI to control them are currently available from my website.
No installation is required and codec removal/system cleanup can be performed using the button on the Help TAB of the GUI.

They are distributed separately as a 32-Bit or 64-Bit solutions and can be combined for full playback support.
Use of Windows Media Player is heavily targeted but not a requirement. Any player you choose can use these distributions.
I also distribute a pre-configured 64-Bit MPC-BE player on my tools page to complement these codec solutions.

Direct download links are found above each of the MajorGeeks links.
The Standard release only contains LAV and DirectVobSub for subtitles.
The Advanced release contains the above plus the MPC-BE team splitters and decoder.

I hope you find these distributions useful.

Beginning with the release of versions 14.8.1 and 11.2.1, the public distribution schedule is going to have a major overhaul because I am implementing an Auto-Update feature that will allow users to update the included Settings Application directly from within the GUI without the need to download full codec releases. I will only make full releases when updating the codecs is warranted by new and improved capabilities within the distributed codecs. This new feature will be controlled by the existing checkbox on the Help tab and run solely off of my own servers.

Updated the graphic to show that the codecs are also included in the Auto-Update feature starting with version 15

A quick note to show that the portable releases can now fully update themselves without ever needing to download a full codec release.
I updating the above graphic to include a screenshot of a codec update in progress.

Also know, this feature can be run silently using the commandline, full\path\Tools\AutoUpdate.exe /silent OR full\path\Tools\Settings64_portable.exe /silent
The silent option requires minimum version 2.2.0.0 of the updater.
These updates preserve the user settings also.

I've tested the current release in Windows 11
Video playback of all formats including HDR and HLG in 64bit Windows Media Player tested OK.
