Supported File Formats:

Input Files: ASF, AVI, DV, FLV, MOV, MP4, MPG, OGG/OGM, RM/RMVB, SWF, WMV


* Determines which video codec an AVI file uses
* Determines what audio encoding method the file uses
* Determines what codecs you have installed, and whether you have the one needed
* Up-to-date database of over 200 codecs, including the latest DivX 5 and XVID systems
* Shows reported audio bitrate and calculates video bitrate
* Reports if the file is truncated, and how many bytes are missing. Great for downloaders.
* Identifies MPG, MPEG, MOV, WMA, WMV, ASF or OGG/OGM if an unknown non-AVI file is examined.
* Shows RIFF INFO (title, etc) if present, including hidden ASCII in the "JUNK" field
* Easy to use ("File > Load" and you're done)
* Microscopic footprint - download size only 29KB
* Free for personal use

please remember that this is only the fourcc that you are shown here effectively the fourcc tells the avi media splitter which codec to use for playback.
For example if you encode using lavc it will set the fourcc to xvid but if you open it in MPEG4Modifier it will show the actual codecs bitstream signature.
