Magical Solution for your Audio Problems – Audio Codecs

By Julia Roger Subscribe to RSS | January 24th 2012 | Views:

Have you got a problem playing an audio file such as song or a video on your computer or laptop? If the answer is yes, then probably you need to install a small computer program which is commonly known as “Codec”. The word audio codecs, as the name signifies is capable of coding or decoding a digital data stream or signal by using an algorithm which compresses and decompresses digital audio in accordance to a given audio file format or streaming media format. Basically, this algorithm changes the audio signal with minimum number of bits at the same time maintaining its quality.

These codecs serve to be fruitful where there are concerns related to bandwidth and storage. As in case of an MP3, more number of songs can be stored in compressed low bandwidth in comparison to a CD. However, at certain times you will see that when you want to play any audio file compressed with a codec, the player which you are using might not support it. Also, you may have noticed that a warning message usually pops up on the screen alerting you regarding the missing codec when you are probably trying to play sync or burn an audio file. This is because the audio file which you using was compressed with a different codec.

At these times, you need to download the necessary codec from different websites. In most of the cases, these codec’s are available for free downloading. If you know the name of the codec or at least if you have the idea of the codecs ID you can try surfing the web. You can also try going to the codec manufacturer’s website and download the most recent version. While in some other cases, the player can automatically detect codecs installed on your system by another media player.

Choose the right codec for your audio file depending on the system support and play your favorite songs anytime and anywhere you want.
