One of the most common issue we face while playing videos in the PC is codec missing error. Sometimes its annoying to search the internet and find out which codec is missing and then install it. CodecInstaller is a free utility which checks the system and tells us which codecs are missing and needs to be installed for the program to run.
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.
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).
After analysis it suggests safe, reliable download sources for the codecs. CodecInstaller can also be used to distribute video files on a CD, to make sure that who ever uses the CD will have all the necessary codecs installed.
CodecInstaller is a good utility to check and install all the necessary codecs. In case you want to install all codecs, then try the K-Lite Codec Pack.
