As we all know Microsoft Windows 11 is available only in 64-bit version unlike the previous versions of Windows which were released in both 32-bit and 64-bit editions. On a 64-bit system, we can use both 32-bit and 64-bit programs but the latter perform better. This is why if you are thinking of installing media codecs on your Windows 11 PC, then you should consider StarCodec x64. It is a pack of popular codecs that work flawlessly on any system running Windows 11.
StarCodec64 is a pack of codecs meant only for 64-bit Windows starting from Windows 7 to Windows 11. It comes with 64-bit version of codecs only that work with 64-bit version of players only. If you install it on your PC and then use a 32-bit version of media player, then they won’t work.
When installing it, you can make a selection of various components that are being installed. You have to keep everything 64-bit in order for it to work without problem. This codec pack does not come with any media player, however you can use it with Microsoft Windows Media Player.
During the installation, we can choose an audio environment setup for your PC. This depends on how you want to listen to your music or videos. For most of the Windows users who do not use special speakers, it is going to be “Stereo”. If you are unsure, then you can leave it to “No Change”.
Another important option is the “Post Processing Level” which can affect the video quality being played on your PC. You can either pick high post processing or leave it to “No Change”. If you find any difficulty playing videos, then you can change these options by launching StarCodec64 configuration from the Start Menu.
StarCodec64 is a smart set of all the codecs that anyone would ever need to play videos on a Windows 11 PC. It is a great companion of Microsoft Windows Media Player.
