Etymonix MPEG-2 Video Codec

The Etymonix MPEG-2 I-frame Video Codec for Win95/98/Me/NT4/2000/XP is a software-only video compressor/decompressor based on the standard Video for Windows (VfW) architecture.

Etymonix MPEG-2 Video Codec can be used with a wide range of existing applications (such as Adobe Premiere, Fractal Design Painter, Ulead Video Studio, Ulead MediaStudio Pro, Windows Media Player, Macromedia Flash MX) that support VfW codecs. Typically, these applications will store the compressed MPEG data generated by the codec in an AVI file. A wide range of resolutions and frame rates (including NTSC and PAL) are also supported.

Etymonix MPEG-2 Video Codec is specifically engineered to preserve quality during image processing while providing better compression than lossless solutions.

AVIcodec AVIcodec is a free multimedia file analyser for Windows. AVIcodec gives detailed information, especially the codecs needed to play the file, and where to download those codecs if they are missing on your system.

AVIcodec is a very useful tool that helps you identify the codec used by video files. As you may know, most video files have a simple AVI, MPEG etc. extensions, however some of them may require additional codecs like DivX or VCD and others. When trying to run such a file, and you don't have the proper codec installed, you will get an error message, or may be limited to audio playback only.

While AVIcodec does not provide you with the codecs, it makes it easy to identify the exact video type and the codecs required (if any). In addition, it provides links to online resources to find required codecs, and also displays a list of all codecs (with version) that are installed on your system. AVIcodec Download
