CodecInstaller detects the audio and video codecs installed on your system. Suppose if you are playing a video file, you could here only sound but no video or only video but no sound. This is due to a codec missing. Here we need CodecInstaller. CodecInstaller analyzes these files and suggests you which codecs those files need. CodecInstaller lists some common codecs also. We can download those codecs from CodecInstaller itself. CodecInstaller is a Freeware.
CodecInstaller contains a MovieLauncher which displays information about the video file and a Play button. CodecInstaller supports avi, mpeg, wmv, wma, ogg, flac, mpc, mp3, mp4, wav, and wx files.
CodecInstaller supports Win98, ME, NT4(Service Pack5), 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista. But Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0 or higher is required for CodecInstaller to work. For Windows Vista no need to install .Net Framework. It is included in Windows Vista itself.
