Supported codecs

In order to play audio and video, devices need compression/decompression (codec) software or hardware that performs conversions between different compressed data types. Software codecs are implemented in software only, whereas hardware-accelerated codecs use hardware to perform some of the functions for increased processing speed. For more information, see Video encoding guidelines .

The multimedia framework (MMF) is a high level interface for accessing audio and video functionality. Codecs can be accessed through MMF or through a lower level audio device driver, DevSound .

To access codecs
