Watching Videos

You can watch various digital video types using Media Center's My Videos interface. A list of supported video file formats appears in Table 9.1.

tip

Media Center can support additional video file formats, but first you may need to install a new codec. According to Microsoft, codec stands for “compressor/decompressor” and refers primarily to software used to do just that: compress or decompress digital video. The filename extensions shown in Table 9.1 each represent different codecs that are already supported within Windows XP Media Center Edition.
