However, there are still dozens of video codec out there and instructions are driving you nuts. How to download and install codec pack for GOM Player? You get the easiest way here.
Compared to GOM Player, the free 5KPlayer simply covers a much wider range of codec support. It plays MKV, MP4, MOV, AVI and more video formats without the help of any external Codec Pack. Topping the list of universal media players, 5KPlayer is a second-to-none choice to tackle any codecs without choke.
Method 1: When a media file fails to open in GOM Player, the Codec Finder will automatically show up. Hit the "Find Codec" button to download the corresponding codec and you will get a file with ".download" extension. Do make sure that you change the extension to ".exe" for installation.
Method 2: Go to visit the GOM official site to the Resource Center, and you will find there are "Subtitle" and "Codec" options, click on Codec and enter the codec name that you want to download and then click on search.
