How to watch video

If you downloaded something video file via torrent, and the video file does not open? Most likely, you do not have the necessary video codecs.
Not all video players support ALL video file formats (for example: .mkv). That's why, you can not open and view some video files.

There are only 3 most popular video formats, these are: .MP4, .AVI and .mkv. Of course, there are other video formats, but they are not so popular.

You ask, why should anyone invent a bunch of different video formats? - It's all about encoding and compression.

The same video in different video formats will have different quality, file size and many other differences. But we will not go into all the ways of working video codecs. But we will not go into all the details of the work of video codecs. We do not need it. We need that we can open and view any downloaded video file. To do this, you will need: K-Lite Codec Pack (wikipedia) . You can download the latest version from the official website .

After installation, you will not have problems viewing video files.

P.S If you have any questions, I will be happy to answer them in the comments! Have a nice day!
