Another significant feature is that where it can’t play the audio or video of a media file natively, it will try to find an appropriate external codec which will play that file format, using the format’s GUID, a unique identifier for the required codec. On finding a match, it will direct the user to a webpage where the codec can be downloaded and installed.
