Codec Downloads

For those who don't already know, a codec compresses or decompresses media files such as songs or videos. Apps such as Windows Media Player use codecs to play and create media files. A codec can consist of two parts: an encoder that compresses the media file (encoding), and a decoder that decompresses the file (decoding). FileHippo is home to a range of more than 260 free video, audio and media codecs. Between them, they offer you everything from VFW/ACM codecs and tools, to AVIs, DVD, XviD, DivX, MPEG 4, H263+, H264, WMV, AAC, FLAC and much, much more.
