Xenorate Codec PackOverview
Xenorate uses directshow for video playback. This means, we use your installed codecs for playing media content.
Basically this is good, but in some cases its annoying if you are missing some codecs.
By the way, Xenorate shows you which video & or audio codecs are missing ;-)
Thats the reason we came out with our own free codec pack which includes all required codecs to play almost every media format out there.
It also enforces that only xenorate can use this codecs, because we do not want to disturb any other installed directshow applications.
