Too Long; Didn't Read

This guide is intended for all non-technical readers who wish to understand anything with respect to the codecs. This is the ultimate guide all over the Internet for codecs written in plain English. The size of files created in audio and video are huge files that need to be compressed before they are written into CDs or published on the Internet so that they are easy to transport. The encoded files are present on their servers for any video streaming service like Netflix, Prime, or Youtube. When those servers play video, those servers will determine the type of browser that the file will play on the browser.
