Codecs (Input plug-ins)
Codecs allow for playback, and in some cases, encoding of different formats. Note that Video codecs are only supported with MediaMonkey 4.
MediaMonkey 4 can play most audio/video formats using codecs already installed on your system. If you don't have the relevant codecs installed, this plugin adds support for aac (.m4a, .m4b), h.264 (.mp4, .m4v, .mkv), mpeg4 (.avi), + flash, .mov, and mpeg files. In addition, it supports encoding to aac, alac, h.264, and mpeg4. The trial version is limited to 30-days of operation.Version History / Details
AC3 Filter decodes and processes AC3 audio used in some movies (DVD, MPEG4 and others). Only install this codec if you have already installed the MediaMonkey Codec Pack and FFDshow and video is playing without any audio. Note: install the 'Stable' version of the codec from the download link.Version History / Details
The FFDshow codec pack adds support for a wide variety of video formats. If a video is unable to play even after installing the MediaMonkey Codec Pack, try installing FFDshow. Note: Install the x32 version, and use the default settings--no configuration should be required.Version History / Details
Quicktime can be useful if you're unable to play certain video files (.mov or .3GP) even after installing the MediaMonkey Codec Pack and FFDshow.
In addition, either Quicktime or the MediaMonkey Codec Pack are needed to play M4A files > 48KHz. It is advisable to only use Quicktime as a last resort since Apple is no longer updating it for bugs or security issues after version 7.7.9 released Jan. 2016.
Note for Windows 10 users: Version 7.7.9 can be installed to Windows 10--even though Apple's site indicates that it's only compatible with Windows 7.
