Combined Community Codec Pack 2009-09-09 (CCCP)

leave a comment »


Combined Community Codec Pack actually is 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…

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.

Why CCCP? Because it achieves as much as possible with as little as possible. Other codec packs tend to either randomly not work, break the system, or install far too much cruft. With the CCCP, you know that when you install it properly, it just works. You don’t need to mess around in the options to get it to work, and chances are it will resolve any other conflicts on install as well. CCCP was invented so you can “Uninstall everything else, install the pack and live happily ever after”. That being said, for the adventurous there are pages of options available to tweak if you feel like it.
