MediaTab To Add Media Information In Windows Explorer Properties Windows

If you are addicted to movies and watch many movies in your computer, you would have came across a lot of issues preventing you from watching the movies you like. The most common error would be the one that states that the required codec for playing the video was not found in your computer. However if you choose to run the media carefully by selecting the correct player for each type of file, then you might not ever run into such error statements, suggest Windows support number technicians.

Most computers are equipped only with the Windows Media Player program and by default, the program is the default media player program in every Windows computer. The issue found here is that since the media player has only options to limited formats of media, you would have to install extra codec for running certain media files in the program. If you have no extra codec installed in the system, the program will not be able to render media files.

There is another option; you could install a codec pack on the computer, so that the media player program will be able to render all types of media files. However, the problem with installing a codec pack is that it installs a lot of codecs in the system taking lots of memory when you are in need of only two or may be three codecs for running certain file types. Windows support number technicians advice you that the best method is to install a program like Video Inspector or Codec Toolbox in your system, so that you might be able to find which all codecs are needed for running the media files on your system.

The MediaTab toolbar is the one in the third category. The main function of the program is to attach itself to the Windows Explorer Properties tab and then display the details about the file types and required codecs for playing the media. You can access the program by right clicking on the file and then selecting the Properties tab. The program also provides the user information about the media ranging from the video bit rate to audio compression or stream size.

The information displayed on the screen can then be copied or exported to a text file or HTML file and can be used for future references.
