    CCCP - Combined Community Codec Pack

    This project is well worth the download....


    .mkv

    The Matroska Multimedia Container is an open standard free container format, a file format that can hold an unlimited number of video, audio, picture or subtitle tracks inside a single file.[1] It is intended to serve as a universal format for storing common multimedia content, like movies or TV shows. Matroska is similar in conception to other containers like AVI, MP4 or ASF, but is entirely open in specification, with implementations consisting mostly of open source software. Matroska file types are .MKV for video (with subtitles and audio), .MKA for audio-only files and .MKS for subtitles only. The most common use of .MKV files is to store HD video files.


    .ogm

    Ogg is a free, open standard container format maintained by the Xiph.Org Foundation. The creators of the Ogg format claim that it is unrestricted by software patents and is designed to provide for efficient streaming and manipulation of high quality digital multimedia.

    The name ‘Ogg’ refers to the file format which can multiplex a number of separate independent free and open source codecs for audio, video, text (such as subtitles), and metadata.

    In the Ogg multimedia framework, Theora provides a lossy video layer, while the music-oriented Vorbis codec most commonly acts as the audio layer. The human speech compression codec Speex, lossless audio compression codec FLAC, and OggPCM may also act as audio layers.

    The term ‘Ogg’ is commonly used to refer to audio file format Ogg Vorbis, that is, Vorbis-encoded audio in the Ogg container. Previously, the .ogg file extension was used for any content distributed within Ogg, but as of 2007, the Xiph.Org Foundation requests that .ogg be used only for Vorbis due to backward compatibility concerns. The Xiph.Org Foundation decided to create a new set of file extensions and media types to describe different types of content such as .oga for audio only files, .ogv for video with or without sound (including Theora), and .ogx for applications.[3]

    The current version of the Xiph.Org Foundation's reference implementation, released on June 23, 2009, is libogg 1.1.4[4]. Another version, libogg2, has been in development, but is awaiting a rewrite as of 2008[5]. Both software libraries are free software, released under the new BSD license. Ogg reference implementation was separated from Vorbis on September 02, 2000.[6]

    Because the format is free, and its reference implementation is non-copyleft-ed, Ogg's various codecs have been incorporated into a number of different free and proprietary media players, both commercial and non-commercial, as well as portable media players and GPS receivers from different manufacturers.


    Both of these containers are best used to back up anime dvds since English dubs almost always use the same 9 or so voice actors and since actual dialog is better converted to text for a more accurate translation of the original dialog...


    Pisses me off because it's hard "at best" to stream anything other than avi/divx/wmv via 360... mkv and ogg are pretty much the standard for "jap releases" but usa shit still gets the 360 supported avi releases...

    Release groups need to realize that "real" fans don't give a fuck about shitty english dubs that use the same 4 voice actors for hundreds of releases.... I'd much rather read than hear the same "Johnny Yong Bosch" that gives his voice to everything known to modern man...

    Codec packs like this are shite, because when you come to adding other codecs, or updating other codecs, the codec pack starts causing all kinds of conflicts.

    If you need to play videos with many different formats, you should install VLC Media player. If that doesn't play the file, determine the codec and install it manually.

    Yes, but you don't need all those codecs, VLC will play them off the bat, and some will actually conflict.

    To give you an example, my sister installed this CCCP on her laptop. She then went to play a HD Transport Stream and it was stuttering. I removed the CCCP and all of it's codecs, and the file played fine. The codecs had conflicted.

    That is why it's a bad idea to just install all of these codecs willy nilly, you end up with conflicts that actually worsen playback.

    I've installed cccp on every system I've built (which is a lot) right after the os install for years now and never have problems, but I can agree that some people might, I've just never seen it.

    VLC is definately sick. ive heard of people installing this CCCP and never having another codec worry aswell. Personally i use VLC i like the lightweight feel, heavy functionality of it.

    I've used CCCP for a quite a few years, as well. I also have VLC Media Player installed, but mostly just for playing DVDs and some really obscure video formats. I use good ol' Windows Media Player as my default. I've never had issues with anything.

    Don't see how that has anything to do with watching videos, unless you're just trying to get more posts...

    If you check my postings, most are nothing more than trying to help people, with some here and there responding to others about a given topic, I could understand your concern if I was just spamming porn sites all over or something, but I don't...


    Anyone know if there is a worthwhile way to stream ogg and Matroska to 360 yet?

    I have downloaded this shit to watch porn I've downloaded and didn't have a codec for it. My videos lagged. So I just stopped downloading porn. Stream it on PSP FTW!!!
