Holovids Help

Video Codecs

The VLC movie player can handle all video formats (DivX, WMV, ASF, MPEG, even RealMovie) without issue. You should not have to install any specific codecs or codec packs on your system.

Information about specific codecs used throughout the Holovids section is included below for archival purposes only!

  • DivX
    These files require that a specific codec is installed on your computer. Please check this DivX FAQ if you have no picture and/or sound when playing these. DivX 3 may be needed for some files, even if you already have a more recent version installed! Different versions of DivX can co-exist.
  • Cinepak
    This is a very old video codec used in Microsoft Video For Windows. Almost all media players can handle this format.
  • XviD
    These files require that a specific codec is installed on your computer. Please check this XviD FAQ if you have no picture and/or sound when playing these.
  • WMV or ASF
    A recent version of Windows Media Player is required.
  • H.264
    You will need either VLC (recommended), Quicktime or the CoreAVC codec to play this file.
  • RM (RealMovie)
    Requires Real Player (not recommended). Only a few of our oldest, lowest quality files are in this format.

Archive Formats

  • RAR
    Similar to .ZIP files. 7-Zip (recommended) or WinRAR is required to extract these.
