Play non playable audio and video files

Sunday, October 12, 2008 Posted by Aman Jain

Digital data (such as audio and video) needs to be compressed (encoded) before transmission and

decompressed (decoded) before playback . The encoding

and decoding is done by a program called a ’Codec’. Each

media file format requires a codec .VLC media player

supports many codecs and hence it can play almost any media file .If you use another media player than it would

be a good idea to download and install the K-Lite Codec pack, which is a library of most codecs.
