|This site currently handles over 10000 downloads per
day through four servers worldwide.
Due to a lack of donations and the rapid decline of online advertising
we may have to shut down all of our codec and player related sites.
We are asking regular users to consider making a small donation to this site or codec developer sites to make sure development continues
and downloads stay available.
We would also recommend saving the installer just in case the sites do have to shut down.

A codec is a piece of software on either a device or computer
capable of encoding and/or decoding video and/or audio data from files,
