Jun 02, 2016 VLC plays most codecs (MPEG-2, DivX, H.264, MKV, WebM, WMV, MP3, etc.) so no codec packs are needed. It runs on all platforms: Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, Unix, etc. And VLC is hassle free with no spyware, no ads, and no user.
Etymonix SoftReel is a faster than real-time MPEG-2 video decoder that has been optimized extensively for single-core and multi-core systems. It enables smooth high-quality playback of native MPEG-2 video files (MPG, VOB, DAT, M2P, M2V, ATI MP2) and compatible AVI files ('EM2V' and 'PIM2' formats) up to HD 1920x1152 in Windows Media Player and other DirectShow-compatible applications.
SoftReel's robust design makes it resilient to bitstream errors (e.g. from transmission glitches or scratched video discs). It has been extensively tested on a wide range of x86 processors and Windows operating systems.
Its key features are:
- Compatible with ISO/IEC 13818-2 (MPEG-2 video) and ISO/IEC 11172-2 (MPEG-1 video) International Standards
- Decodes MPEG-2 standard-definition (SD) and high-definition (HD) video streams up to 1920x1152, including:
