A Video Codec is a software based on an algorithm that allows for compression or decompression of digital video. Historically, videos were kept on magnetic tapes, but with the introduction of the digital format, engineers needed to find a way to transform physical videos into digital ones. For this purpose, they developed video codec.
The most popular video codecs are DivX, Xvid, H264, VP8 or WMV.
