If you’re using our Karaoki karaoke software and have had trouble playing karaoke video files such as MP4 or AVI, download and install our new PCDJ karaoke video codec pack below.
Karaoki, like many karaoke programs today, requires video codecs to be installed on the computer in order to play various types of karaoke video files. Thankfully, for many KJs using Karaoki on a Windows Computer playing karaoke video files such as MP4 the codecs required are already installed. However, for those users that experience an ‘error loading file’ or similar issue when attempting to load and play karaoke video files they’ve had to install a video codec pack like CCCP or Klite.
Finding the right combination of karaoke video file format, codec pack, settings, and graphics card drivers has been a unfortunately daunting task for some Karaoki KJs — with some users unable to get any of the karaoke video codec packs on the web to do the trick. This can understandably lead to user frustration as the popularity of MP4 karaoke video files has grown substantially over the last few years.
Introducing The PCDJ Karaoke Video Codec Pack
Our karaoke software development team has spent a considerable time over the last few weeks creating the ‘PCDJ Karaoke Video Codec Pack‘, and so far the results have been fantastic. Windows 7, 8 and 10 users of Karaoki that have had zero luck using one of the popular karaoke video codec packs, such as the Klite Mega Codec Pack, are now able to play MP4 and other karaoke video file types in Karaoki using the PCDJ Karaoke Video Codec Pack.
While we confident the PCDJ Karaoke Video Codec Pack will work for the majority of Karaoki KJs that wish to play karaoke video files such as MP4, while there may still be anomalies — there’s a really good chance the codec pack will work for you!
You will want to make sure no other video codec packs are installed on your computer before installing the PCDJ Karaoke Video Codec Pack. Here are the steps for proper installation:
