Have a look at LAVFilters. It's a free package with several codecs/filters.
There are a lot of download sites (watch out for realiable) and the original
at github.
I am using it for mp4 h.264 videos on windows, very reliable without any
issues yet.

Betreff: WANTED: Codecs for DirectShow and LC9xx

WANTED: Recommendations for free to distribute and use codec for use with
DirectShow and LiveCode 9xx under Windows.

I have found that the range of media formats DirectShow supports (out of the
box) in LiveCode 9xx (when compared to earlier LC versions and Quicktime for
Windows) to be staggeringly limited!

I love LiveCode, but cross-platform media playing is awful compared to say
around the time of LC7 or 6

So, I am seeking any recommendations of free to distribute and use codecs
for DirectShow/LiveCode 9xx under WIndows that expands the formats
DirectShow can handle.

Mothership (i.e. LiveCode, Ltd.) you should watch this thread and if there
are any, author and feature them in a prominent help article on your web
site OR even better, add them into the Dictionary!
