Features of Super Easy Codec Checker:

  • With 4CC-Manipulation – Some AVI-Videos (like an Internet-loaded DivX- or Xvid-movie) are rejected because their identification does not correspond to what media player expects. Identification is stored in the header of the respective file and indicates the video format as well as the video codec used for creation. DivX-certified MPEG-4-players in particular often insist on finding the character string ‘DIVX’ and/or ‘DX..’ in the header – even if basically they would be able to play videos that were created by means of other codecs like e.g. HDX4 or Xvid. For these cases SuperEasy Codec Checker has the ability to equip an AVI-File with a different identification, by selecting the desired character string from a drop-down-list.
