Hi experts,

Decoder module errors and Warnings in VLC



VLC Media Player is one of the best media players all over the world. It supports large number of file input formats and able to play them perfectly. This is limited as it doesn’t have all the codecs required to play all the file formats found online.

The error is thrown up because VLC haven’t found any suitable codec to run the file. Codecs are for decoding the file and making it possible for the player to play. Here is the list that are supported by VLC.

Loronix WaveCodec (ADV1) is the codec used to create the file. You can either find a suitable player for the file format or convert it to any popular format.
