- DO YOU HAVE THE RIGHT CODECS?

Most of computers are now bundled with a DVD player. Some are combo of DVD and CD-R and all the flavors of CD players here outlined. Sometimes, particularly under Windows XP, the DVD or Combo is not recognized by the operating system. Consequently, the Combo or the standalone DVD player fails playing DVD movies.

There are a lot about this in dedicated forums around the World Wild Web where people post messages searching for filmware and drivers. Sometimes updating a driver may solve the problem. You may visit Drivers Headquarters to text the relevance of drivers in your systems. Some people even advise to change the DVD / CD-R Combo basic configuration in the BIOS settings to "Slave" to the Hard disk.

However, everything may simply boils down to CODECS updating. CODECS? Compressing Decompressing Software, in plain English, are utilities that assist the DVD device to reading and playing movies from the DVD disk.

Things are complicated because most often DVD disks are not encoded the same way that is using one and unique CODECS. There are many and several CODECS around and if you miss the right one your DVD device cannot perform. What to do? Update your CODECS library visiting:

1- Microsoft Codecs updating page.
2- This specific site or
3- This one that gives links to free Codecs

However, you should be careful not packing your system with redundant Codecs from several developers. How to achieve that? There is a piece of utility called GSpot that help you spot the right CODECS for a particular DVD. Drag any *.avi or DivX video into GSpot and it will tell you which audio and video codecs were used to encode the video.

Visit free- Codecs webpages and search for the latest version of GSpot and save yourself the time of loading unnecessary codecs. It is free.

Search engines' war is raging. Microsoft MSN, Yahoo!, Google to name only the big players. The gorillas are offering for Free Search-Bar Add On to the browser. Well, well, which one to choose? They are all good stuffs. However, in our opinion, it is a small player (as always!) that is offering the best Search-Bar.

If you want to have the best, give a try to Advanced Searchbar's Search-Bar. You will keep it. No doubt. It comes packed with the possibility to querry 60 search engines. That only is already a must. Further, there are other goodies. No much talk. Just get it. It works perfectly with other gorillas' clients from MSN, Yahoo! or Google.
