Hi Marinel

Yes that is safe to remove, k-lite codec pack adds functionality to Windows Media player, which allows it to play media file formats, that were not originally supported on the Windows Media Player

If you do not intend to use Windows Media Player, you can uninstall that codec Pack

It’s as it says - a codec pack for use with media players & those who work with audio & video files (convert, create etc), it has included the windows media player classic which plays more file types than WMP.
You can uninstall the pack if you wish via the usual methods.

Hi Marinel

VLC Player is totally safe as long as you download that from the official website, it is fully featured and will play every Media File you will have, it is a good choice !

Hi Marinel,

Windows Media Player was, in its day a very good player, it has of late fallen behind because Microsoft are developing the Windows 10 apps instead . .

k-Lite Code was used to provide code packs to media players which didn't have their own like WMP.

VLC media player has its own codec which is built as part of VLC itself.

This is safe to use and is even available as Windows 10 app on Microsoft Store. If you are doubtful about VLC, you should use Microsoft Store VLC app.

You can safely download from Microsoft Store as Store apps are safe.
