CodecViewer

View the codecs needed to play a video file"
A review by John

If you are looking for the perfect application that combines simplicity and efficiency, then you need to check out this software utility. While it performs a very basic task, it does it impressively with flaws. Indeed, what this program does is nothing more than to show users the codecs they need in order to play any particular video file. Considering the fact that this software utility is designed for a very simple purpose, it is no surprise that it comes with just a minimal interface that comes down to one window without any visual elements. It’s a basic interface that displays the information you need so everything comes easy with this software tool.

Despite the simplicity of its interface, it might be hard for beginners to get their way around it due to the complexity of how some of its functions are presented. This is further complicated by its lack of a user guide to put you through the process so you might end up searching online for elucidation. This tool whose only job us to display necessary codecs for playing any particular file has a main window that lets you select the location of the file and, upon the conduct of a quick scan, it displays the audio and the video codecs that your PC needs to play the concerned file.

CodecViewer is licensed as freeware for PC or laptop with Windows 32 bit and 64 bit operating system. It is in other video tools category and is available to all software users as a free download.
