What is a Codec?

Codec is short for compressor/decompressor, it is any technology for compressing and decompressing data. Codecs can be implemented in software, hardware, or a combination of both. Codecs are used to make large video files much smaller making them suitable for distribution on the net, either on the web or a LAN or any other method of file transfer like wireless devices etc.
Some times when you are trying to play an .avi file the "Unexpected File Format" or a similar error message displays.This happen if you are attempting to play a file for which the proper codec is not on your system. To correct the problem obtain the correct codec.
