What is it?
The DefilerPak is a minimalist collection of video and audio codecs designed to keep you up to date with the latest developments.
- ffdshow: Rapidly making codec packs obsolete. Plays almost everything.
- Haali Media filter: Supports the Matroska, MP4, and OGM A/V container formats.
- VSFilter: Supports a wide variety of subtitle formats.
- DivX ;-) Audio: Just in case.
- AC3 XForm filter: Makes life a little easier for folks with external Dolby Digital decoders.
- HDTVPump: Support for HD/ATSC transport streams.
Not much to be said here. If there's something you don't want, you're not forced to install it.
The default options are recommended.
Check out the Audio Configuration icon if you need a specific speaker configuration not covered by the installer.
By all accounts, DefilerPak works on all versions of Windows.
Personally, I have only tested it on 98, 2000, XP, and Server 2003.
If you use something else, I may not be able to help you.
The latest version can always be obtained at:

- Hopefully finally fixed the bug that prevented totally clean Windows installs from working.
- You can now optionally have DefilerPak leave the 'thumbnail preview' features in WinXP alone.
- Post-processing enabled by default, and in silent mode installs.
- Switched from volume normalization to a +3db bump. Should sound better.
If you enable any of the newer features of ffdshow, God knows what will happen. Fear walks among us, clothed in DirectShow.
H.264 playback is still not perfect with ffdshow. If this is important to you, I recommend buying a copy of Nero.
Any other bugs you encounter are special "easter eggs" included for my loyal fans.
