Default My codecs FAQ

I uploaded a codec FAQ. For the time being it is basic, but I will add more questions and answers on more advanced topics.

You can add new questions, ideas and corrections to this FAQ, I will add them.
Greetings

You've done great work with this FAQ. :D

Here are some sections that I think can be improved:

**** Graphedit: www.microsoft.com : in the graph menu > add filter dialog.
The address "http://david.saber.free.fr/bazaar/codecs/www.microsoft.com" is not valid. GraphEdit is being hosted here: http://www.doom9.org/Soft21/Filters/graphedit.rar

**** MkvToolNix: http://bunkus.org/videotools/mkvtoolnix/ : The codec IDs in Matroska files are written as cleartext and can be read by using a hex editor or by opening them (either Matroska or MP4) in MkvToolNix. If you choose to remux the opened file, the status dialog box might show longer description of the "demultiplexer" and "output module" used for each stream.
It doesn't make much sense if you don't provide (link to) the list of Codec IDs: http://www.matroska.org/technical/sp...cid/index.html which explains some of the abbreviations used. I would use this text (as part of a FAQ):
MkvToolNix is used to create Matroska (*.mkv) files from elementary streams. But it can also be handy in finding out information about existing Matroska, MP4 or AVI files. To determine the format of streams contained within a MKV open MMG -- a GUI to mkvmerge -- and drop the MKV in this window. The Tracks pane will show the codec ID (http://www.matroska.org/technical/sp...cid/index.html) of each elementary stream. If you choose to remux the opened file, the status dialog box might show longer description of the "demultiplexer" and "output module" used for each stream, such as "MPEG-4 Part 10". After that you can choose to cancel the muxing process and discard the newly created file.

Does the mpeg2 codec installed on Windows decode also the audio on the dvd's?

No, it only decodes video. Usually, a DVD software or codec comes with an DVD audio codec that does this job.
Perhaps, you could mention AC3Filter v1.01. It can decode LPCM, AC-3, DTS and (I think) MP2 audio.

Missed in your FAQ that codecs can also be removed using Window's own possibilities:
e.g. through rightclick on My computer > Properties > ....
or through [Start] > Settings > Control panel > System > ....
followed by (for both "routes")
.... > Hardware > Device manager > Sound, Video and Game controllers > ....
Now you can doubleclick on "audio codecs" or "video codecs" and select [Properties] and there they are ...

(P.S>: Note the abovementioned "titles" are translated from Dutch (windows) to English, so there may be different terminology)
