What is a Codec ?

A codec is a method of "Compression/Decompression" and is used to make large video files much smaller making them suitable for distribution on the net, either on the web or a LAN or any other method of file transfer like wireless devices etc.

Some times when you are trying to play an .avi file the "Unexpected File Format" or a similar error message displays.This happen if you are attempting to play a file for which the proper codec is not on your system. To correct the problem obtain the correct codec.
NOTE: Many of the AVI movies posted to the web require special codec drivers not supported by Microsoft and are not installed with the Windows MediaPlayer

Avi video is compressed with many different codecs depending on the needs of the users.




ALL in One !

Jeg har fundet en CodecMSI installer, der dækker 90% af de mest brugte.
  "Nimov432.exe" ( 4.77 Mb )
Udpak den til et "temp" biblotek, og kør "install.exe"

  "Nimo50Build8.exe" ( 6,95 Mb ) Installere sig selv. HUSK at læs "readme" da nogle codec modarbejder hinanden. spec. hvis du benytter MAXTOR Grafikkort.

- VOLLA - nu kan du se 9 ud af 10 :-))
