InstalledCodec – Displays A List Of All Codec Drivers And DirectShow Filters Installed
This is a small utility that you can install to view a list of all the Codec drivers and direct show filters that are installed on your system. This provides detailed information on each of the codec that is installed. This gives the name, type of the codec, the status of the codec (whether it is disabled or not), information about when the codec was installed/modified, a description of the codec, the company name, location of the codec and several other details.
This is a very helpful utility that lets you control all the installed codecs. You can easily enable or disable them individually. With the wide number of available video formats, you will have to have a number of codecs installed on your system. But having all of them running at the same time may slow down your system considerably. Thats when InstalledCodec is very helpful. This software is free for download and usage.
