Based on the open-source FFmpeg audio and video codec library, FFDShow allows users to view movies encoded with commercial codecs such as DivX and x264. Because Windows does not include native support for some formats, codec libraries such as FFDShow are the solution for users who want to watch some types of videos on their computers. If you install other codec libraries, though, such as DivX or K-Lite, FFDShow may cause problems during playback of certain audio streams. If you have other codecs that allow you to view and listen to videos on your PC, you should uninstall the FFDShow library to avoid conflicts.

Click the "Start" button, then "Control Panel." In the "Control Panel" window, click the "Uninstall a program" link under the "Programs" header.
Scroll down to and highlight the "FFDShow" or other similarly named application link. Depending on the version of FFDShow and actual codec library you installed on your computer, the link may appear with names similar to "K-Lite FFDShow," "Mega Pack FFDShow," "FFDShow GUI" or something similar.
Click the "Uninstall" link on the tool bar. Click the "Yes" or "OK" button to confirm that you want to uninstall FFDShow. Wait for Windows to uninstall FFDShow and reboot your computer when prompted.
