Combined Community Codec Pack (CCCP) Download
Free download Combined Community Codec Pack (CCCP) latest version. Actually, it’s more a filter pack than a codec pack, but filter doesn’t begin with C and we wanted a good acronym. The name is also a pun on the Russian name for USSR, Союз Советских Социалистических Республик, abbreviated as “СССР”. Blame Lenin and the Commies. Blame movax.
Jokes aside, the CCCP was created to replace the video playback packs provided by several anime fansub groups in favor of a single reliable pack capable of decoding practically any groups’ files – without breaking compatibility for other formats. Since then it has grown into a pack that can decode more or less anything that you will run into during your travels on the internet.
Using CCCP is simple. Uninstall all codec packs and codecs first. Then just download the installer and run it. Leave all options untouched unless you know what you’re doing. CCCP can play a wide variety of video files, but remember that CCCP’s goal isn’t to decode everything. Instead it aims to support all sensible releases. Here’s the complete list of formats that CCCP enables you to play:
