codec identification

  inapot69 13:04 15 Jan 2007

hello again..
does anyone know of a program that will identify the codec required to play a video clip
i keep getting error messages thrown up by windows media player for some movie clips...i follow the link to "web help" and it gives me an error code...but i admit it doesn't make a lot of sense.
a freind of mine says he once saw a program that checked the file and identified the codec required to play it...
although he cannot remember where and what the thing was called...
i know, not a lot of help
has anyone out there any ideas?

Get the K-lite codec pack and never be stuck for codecs again. click here

Ignore the comments of another thread, K-lite DOES NOT contain malware.

What you need is a decoder Windows Media Player does not provide this,Easiest way is to donload the codec pack,Or download the player that I sent, It will play any type of DVD.

i have looked at all your suggestions
and thank you very much
will give em a try
i have had vlc player for some time buteman
but even that didn't play em
it just gave the slider bar and nothing else
it moved rapidly across with no audio or video.
but once again thanks

If VLC will not play, you do have a problem,Can you remember what your error code was.It wasn't Framedyn DLL is missing was it.I have had problems with that for the last month,But I think I have now fixed it,If and when you download the codec pack, If it still does not work ,Write down the error code,A lot of clever folk on here,All they need is that little bit of extra help to find what you are looking for,
