LAV Filters is a collection of DirectShow splitters and audio/video decoders that uses a liblav format to play many media file formats. The software provides near-universal playback on most Windows run media players. The LAV filters package itself contains a video decoder, an audio decoder, and a multi-media splitter and the following codec types: H264, VC-1, MPEG-2, MPEG4-ASP (Divx/Xvid), VP8, MJPEG for video codecs, AAC, AC3, DTS (-HD), TrueHD, MP3/MP2, Vorbis, LPCM for audio codecs. It additionally offers support for VOB, DVB Subs, PGS, SRT, SSA/ASS, and subtitles and for Blu-ray and DVD files. Video, audio, and subtitle synchronization are also possible. If desired, other formats can, in fact, be tested using the GraphicStudio software. 

The LAV filters software also has the capability to demux sub-streams and media files into their elementary streams so that the user is able to play a Blu-ray disk on their laptop or desktop PC. Further, for video playback specifically, the software supports processor multi-threading and can deinterlace the videos using hardware acceleration, a wide range of options in the interface. 

LAV filters are licensed as freeware for the Windows operating system on a laptop or desktop PC from video codec packs without any restrictions. The software compatibility may vary, but generally, it will run well under Microsoft Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP.

A precaution that needs to be taken by users before installing the LAV filters software is to uninstall a software called Haali Media Splitters if this is on the user's computer or to rename its AX file. This software actually forces all media players to use it and denies priority to LAV filters.
