The Windows 7 Codec Pack allows users to decimate a file size on videos and audio recordings by adjusting compression settings. The Windows 7 Codec Packs provides users with a variety of options to adjust the quality, length, and format of the files they wish to capture on their computer. By simply selecting one of the available Windows 7 Codecs, users can convert any file types to Windows media. To apply the Windows 7 codec pack, one simply needs to double click on the code icon present in the system tray, click "Start," then "Run." If the application does not recognize the device, one should click "Home," and then "joysticks;" this will launch a list of all known devices on the desktop.
Once, the application loads, one can click on the "Search" option, and then type in the name of the file they wish to convert. Once the file is searched and converted into a desired format, Windows Media Player should open the file. Now that the conversion has been completed, all that is required is to press the play button. Users can easily adjust the volume levels and adjust the equalizer through the channels on the left side of the Windows 7 codec pack interface. While this is an easy installation process, some experts advise that one should avoid installing the Windows 7 codec pack if they are not interested in converting video or audio files into other formats.
To remove the Windows 7 codec pack, users should first backup their current Windows media library. This can be done by clicking onto "My Computer," selecting "Back up My Computer," and then "format." Next, users should download a good converter/decoder to convert the files they have captured into other formats. To do this, users should go to a website that offers free or paid service for decoding and converting files from different platforms such as Windows Media Player, RealPlayer, Windows Live Voice, and Windows Movie Maker. After downloading and installing the decoders or converters that are suitable for their system, the users can start using the software to convert their files into their preferred Windows 7 codecs.
