Vihang,

Do you mean in MATLAB or just in general. Also are you using Windows or
another platform? If you are looking for the codecs on your machine in
Windows you can find them using Windows Media Player:

1) Launch Windows Media Player
2) Click on the Help Menu and select "About Windows Media Player"
3) When the About Box pops up click on the "Technical Support
Information" Link
4) A web browser should pop up with a list of information. There is a
section on this which lists the video codecs installed on your machine.

Hello Nick
I want to see the video codec's through Matlab. I can
pretty much see the video codecs through Sherlock (link
found here http://www.free-
codecs.com/download/Sherlock_The_Codec_Detective.htm), but
I want to populate them in my guis's listbox .
I dont see any command for that in Matlab. I am using
windows XP as my OS. Also, I have observed that most
codecs found on my computer through Sherlock are not
compatible if I use them in movie2avi command.
Regards
Vihang
