LAV Filters Review

A review of LAV Filters by Sven Sørensen

LAV Filters is a set of video and audio codecs which provides near-universal playback on most Windows media players.

The codec pack doesn't just limit itself to video codecs and includes other tools including the LAV Splitter and a number of things through its integration of FFmeg.

For the LAV Splitter tool included, you can use it to demux different types of media files including those that reside on Blu-ray and DVD discs.

After installation, LAV Filters can also handle the most common subtitle files including DVG subs, VOB, SRT and text files. Video, audio and subtitle synchronization is possible.

For video playback, LAV Filters supports processor multi-threading and can deinterlace videos using hardware acceleration through a number of options in the interface.

All in all, LAV Filters is an excellent all-in-one codec pack which provides universal support for most types of video and audio playback including the usage of foreign language subtitle files.

LAV Filters features and highlights:
  • Containers: MKV/WebM, AVI, MP4/MOV, MPEG-TS/PS (including basic EVO support), FLV, OGG, and many more
  • Video Codecs: H264, VC-1, MPEG-2, MPEG4-ASP (Divx/Xvid), VP8, MJPEG
