Sometimes when we try to open a video file we get the message “not playable”, “codec not found”, “cannot play the desired video because…”, “No filter found”, “could not render the file” and so on. This happens because the file requires a codec which may not be installed in our computer. Today I’m going to solve this problem within a few seconds.
SuperEasy Codec Checker is an excellent program that analyzes video clips and audio files and lists the found information in a clear tree structure. It classifies the information by audio and video stream and by used file format. The software informs you about the resolution, frame rate, file container, audio and video bit rate as well as about the used codec. With this information you are perfectly equipped to install possibly missing software.
