Find the Codec you need Easily

If your anything like me your like to keep your OS as clean as possible for optimal performance. And you like to keep it simple, where you don’t have a million media players for this and that, you just simply like to use what been provided by the OS.

Well if that’s you well I have recently come across a very handy application, that allows me to keep using Media player for all my movies, Video, DVD’s, and Music.

The application is called ‘Gspot’, this applications allows you to browse for your media file and then it immediately scans it and informs you what codec types that the media file is using.

As you can see from the below image , it also indicates whether you have the codec installed, and the codec it uses (top right) in my case I do.
