Video codecs and performance
do the video codecs you have installed on your couputer effect performance in any way. for example if your codecs were all messed up could u see a performance loss?
also which ones should i have installed? i have the divx one the xvid one and a couple others.
should i keep the codecs to a miniumm or not?
also if codecs do effect performance is there an app that i can download that will sort it all out?
thx in advance
Define what you mean by a loss in performance. Since video codecs are only used when watching video which uses that particular codec, I don't think you would see a drop in framerate in a game, for example.
Free-codecs.com has all the codecs you'll ever need, some of which are bundled into codec packs
i mean in just general performance like for example if i have 1000 codecs installed would my computer have to load those on startup therefore decreasing general performance?
No. The loss in performance will come from the spyware/adware that comes bundled with some of them.
