In order to play video and audio, you need software which is able to translate the file into a format your computer can understand.
LAV Filters are a set of open-source DirectShow filters that does this translation for all the popular video and audio formats:
- LAV Splitter: a source/splitter filter required to demux video files into their separate elementary streams.
- LAV Audio and Video Decoder: powerful audio and video decoders with a focus on quality and performance.
You can find the latest version of the LAV Filters available here.
