Video not playing - codec?


Recommended Posts


My computer recently needed a new hard drive. Since getting the computer back from repair I am unable to watch the videos I filmed using my Canon camera and also not able to view any Apple videos.


Some of the videos don’t even show up in the files I know they are in.

I have been told this is a codec issue so I have just had a look and there are all sorts of codecs to download.


Now I have no idea what a codec is or what to download so any help would be appreciated.
