  8. 11. You try to play a file that has an .avi extension or a file that you know is an mpeg2 and neither will play. Why?
  9. 12. Codecs and Wrappers <ul><li>A Codec is the method with which a file is encoded </li></ul><ul><ul><li>DIVX </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>XVID </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Cinepak </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Intel Indeo </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Main Concept </li></ul></ul>
  10. 13.
