Hi all,
I am new to the K-Lite codec pack and MPC-HC and have a few questions please:
1 How do I improve the sound of gunfire in videos? At the moment most of the sound is great, except for gunfire.
2: I have a Turando 5.1 surround sound system connected via 3 x 3.5mm analogue jacks to a CMI 8768+ sound card. Do I need LFE in ffdshow (or anywhere for that matter)enabled?
3: I have seen on some forums that madVR is better for playback than DIVXA. Can anyone please clarify this for me?

Apologies for the multiple questions from a newbie, please forgive. I really would like to get the best performance from K-Lite, as I have been very disappointed with VLC.

1. I don't know of a way to improve that. The "real" sound of a gun is pretty underwhelming, so the sound may just be correct already.
2. The codec pack uses LAV Audio Decoder by default. I don't recommend using ffdshow.
3. I think you mean DXVA? That is a method for hardware accelerated decoding. madVR is a video renderer. Those are totally different and unrelated things. madVR is for experienced users. I don't recommend to waste your time on that. The default settings are already good.

Good day sir,
Thank you so much for your reply.
1: I understand your reply, that does make sense to a large degree.
2: I hear you, my question had more to do with using LFE if a person already has a subwoofer on a sound system. I have tried to look online but cannot really find a definitive answer. In this case, I would refer to the LFE slider in the mixing tab of LAV Audio Decoder, can I slide it all the way to the left? 0.00 in other words.
3: OK, that's fine, I will stick with what works.

Those mixing settings in LAV Audio only apply when downmixing (to stereo). Then the LFE slider controls how the sound from the LFE track (from 5.1/6.1/7.1 input) gets mixed into the stereo channels of the output.

In your case simply select 5.1 output and everything else default.
