The InstalledCodec is a freeware that is compatible with Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 2000, and Windows 2003. This software exhibits an index of DirectShow Filters and Codec drivers presently set up in the computer.
Other information of each item like description, filename, installed or altered time; company name, disabled status, display name and type are also shown. The information is filtered out of 2 sites in the Windows Registry.
The software’s command-line options also enables you to save catalog of DirectShow Filters and Codec drivers to text file types like standard files, comma-delimited, tab-delimited and tabular files as well as HTML and XML files. You can also use the clipboard to store the information and then transfer it to OpenOffice or Excel spreadsheet.
Single or multiple items in the record of Codec Drivers as well as DirectShow Filters can be allowed or disabled. This option comes in handy when multifarious media programs and Codec packages are installed in one computer and consequently some media files are unable to be played properly.
In such a situation the new Codec programs can be put out of action to resolve the problem. You can sort the components by installation time so as to identify the newly set up components, which are moved to the bottom of the list after sorting.
Being a standalone executable InstalledCodec does not need installation procedure and extra DLL files. The executable file has to be run after it is copied to a desired folder. The version 1.06 has got a brand new option of ‘Explorer copy’ that permits copy and paste of chosen files into the Explorer’s folder.
