We collect information about installed codecs in the system

Modern multimedia technologies have gone so far today that it became very difficult to understand the existing software solutions in this district. Therefore, even an individual sufficiently erudite in the IT sphere, faced with problems when playing a movie masterpiece on a computer, poses a simple task — how to get detailed information about installed audio and video codecs in the operating system, including information about drivers, libraries, software modules also their versions? It is clear that without objection to this question, it is difficult to move further in search of a cause for malfunction.

However, meanwhile, the problem is completely solvable. How? using the free utility Sherlock - The Codec Detective is allowed easily (the size of the application is limited to eighty kilobytes) is also easy (just one exe-file without installation) to solve it.

Sherlock provides the user with complete information about the installed software codecs on the system (version, associated drivers, libraries, etc.), their developers also copyrights. In addition, the list is allowed to save to a text file, or send to print for further analysis also labor. Without a doubt, a handy utility. Take note.
