DirectShow FilterPack is a short set of filters (decoders) that will allow you to play different music and video formats. Initially, you can already play MP3 music, because Fraunhofer MP3 decoder is installed together with Windows.

But unlike MP3 files, Windows doesn't know how to handle Vorbis audio, for example. With OGG Splitter (plus FFDShow), Windows can handle Vorbis Audio.

This filter package was designed to work with FFDShow. FFDShow is a very powerful DirectShow filter for audio and video decompression, such as DivX / XviD and Vorbis / AAC, but it can also do much more. Thus, you can install a single DirectShow FilterPack, instead of some other filter packages that install more than one filter for the same purpose.

DirectShow FilterPack simplifies media playback by enabling Windows to handle various music and video formats through a single installation.

DirectShow can be used as a media player;Zoom Player, RadLight, The Core Media Player, Windows Media Player, and Media Player Classic (MPC). (Note: This does not apply to Win AMP or XMPlay as this plugin is based as a media player.) (Note: "I do not mean Media Player Classic (MPC) as most of these Splitter filters are already integrated into the MPC.)
