Codecs can be a real pain. If you have all of them installed and working, good for you. But as this is not usually the case, it's good to have tools like CodecInstaller, which can help you organize, find, download and install audio and video codecs. Despite its simple, almost austere interface, this program is definitely worth it for those of you with codec problems.

CodecInstaller includes three main functions: scanning your system to find installed codecs, analyzing a given file to display the codecs it uses and finally giving you direct access to the most popular audio and video codecs, the ones that should be found on any PC.

The program can also be used as "video launcher" but this function requires some configuration. You'll find more information in the Help section.

Ever had a movie where you could hear only the sound but there were no video? Or only video and no sound? That's almost certainly a codec missing! CodecInstaller is here to help you understand which codec you need and to let you install it in minutes.

CodecInstaller is a Windows program that detects the Audio and Video codecs installed on your system, analyzes files to understand which codecs they require and suggests you to install them.

CodecInstaller can also be used to distribute video files on a CD, to be sure that who receives the CD will have all the necessary codecs installed: with a single tool he will be able to check if the codecs are already installed and up-to-date. CodecInstaller contains a MovieLauncher that displays informations about the distributed video file (author, plot, director...) along with a screenshot and a 'Play' button

This program can be used to analyze files: it supports avi, mpeg, wmv, wma, ogg, flac, mpc, mp3, mp4, wav, wx and will show technical data such as width/height and ratio, length, video codec, framerate, size, bitrate, total frames, quality factor and metadata such as title, album, year (if available).
