The CCCP (Combined Community Codec Pack) is a DirectShow filter pack. The full title is the Combined Community Codec Pack. Actually, it's more like 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 Союз Советских Социалистических Республик, which is transliterated into the Latin alphabet as "Soyuz Sovietskikh Sotsialisticheskikh Respublik", or "Union of Soviet Socialist Republics", abbreviated as "СССР" or "USSR". Blame Lenin and the Commies. Blame movax.
Jokes aside, the CCCP was created to replace the filter packs provided by several anime fansub groups into a single reliable pack capable of decoding practically any group's files - without breaking compatibility for other formats. Since then we've grown into a pack that can decode more or less anything that you will run into during your travels on the internet. We're supported and endorsed by a number of groups...
