I use Windows 10 Windows Media Player only and that is more than enough for me not to use another player. It is an old habit yes i use Kazaa Lite K regardless if I really need them or not.

No, on demand only. 99% of the codecs are unused all the time anyway, i don't see any advantage in having what i don't need..

 

It's like installing 10000 drivers in case there may be one or the other that applies for your hardware, nobody is going to do that.

I use to install codec packs about 5 years a go but now most players for windows they already have codecs to play most formats so i no longer have a need to install them.  In other O/S  if i need a  codec i only install the codec i need.  like x265 i can just install the codec, even though Ubuntu flavors dont come with codecs all you have to do is check a box and they install  most needed codecs.  Debian is the same way.:)

You must have one of the very particular video cards that lights up Windows' x264 support. Otherwise, Win10 doesn't support it. It supported it for everyone pre-RTM, but only then, unfortunately.

For many years, i used k-lite codec pack with mpc-hc. In this time, i often used virtualdub and with the k-lite codec pack, i had all i needed. But when i stopped using virtualdub, there was no need for installing a codec pack anymore and the many updates were bothering me anyway, so i stopped using it. The video-thumbnails were the only feature of installed codecs, i missed now, but then i've found Icaros and this problem was solved. MPC-HC (portable) + Icaros - that's my combi.

Latest K-Lite helped me to enable watching a particularly "nasty" video format, using WMP. Strangely, had a problem with VLC. WMP issue was sulved after I installed K-lite

No, never used.

Since my old XP suffered stability problems from additional codecs, or lack thereof, I don't trust these things very much. Fortunately, media players like VLC don't need any external codecs.
