Recognized formats: - Natively: AVI, ASF & WMV, Real (.rm, .rmvb), Ogg (.ogg, .ogm), Mpeg-(S)VCD-DVD (.mpg, .vob) - Others: all those handled by DirectShow (.mp3, ...). Here are some key features of AVIcodec : - install program - tooltips - drag & drop support - accessible from contextual menu in Explorer for AVI files - export of information - source code available
It is a very useful tool that helps you identify the codec used by video files. As you may know, most video files have a simple AVI, MPEG etc. extensions, however some of them may require additional codecs like DivX or VCD and others. When trying to run such a file, and you don't have the proper codec installed, you will get an error message, or may be limited to audio playback only. While it does not provide you with the codecs, it makes it easy to identify the exact video type and the codecs required (if any). In addition, it provides links to online resources to find required codecs, and also displays a list of all codecs (with version) that are installed on your system.
