AVIcodec is a small utility which can display which codecs are required in order to watch video files or listen to audio.

The application includes a user-friendly user interface which doesn't have too many bells and whistles outside of the technical information it provides about video and audio files.

AVIcodec can be especially useful for people who wish to maintain a clean system and only install the codecs they require.

A useful function of AVIcodec is its batch operation mode which can process multiple codecs at once. This can be useful for gearing up to watch a series of videos which probably use different audio or video codecs.

All files processed can display video codecs, audio codecs, DirectShow filters and DirectX Media associations.

In all, AVIcodec can be a very handle tool for people who watch or listen to many different types of multimedia files.
