What is Codec?
A Codec, short for Compressor-Decompressor, is an algorithm used to convert and play back audio in a specific format. Audio stored by a particular codec can only be played back if the codec exists on the system. Popular audio codecs include MP3 (MPEG Layer 3), AAC, and WMA (Windows Media Audio).
