What is MMCompView?

MMCompView shows details of your installed multimedia components such as ActiveX filters and Codec, and enables you to enable or disable certain components. It is already obsolete. Its successor is InstalledCodec and can run on Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 2003 and Windows 2000 platforms. It is a free personal and non-commercial software, and can be distributed with its “readme.txt” file included without being modified. It is provided as is without warranty. It is a standalone application. It requires no installation or DLLs. You only need to execute the file mmview.exe to display all multimedia components installed.

You can disable or enable multimedia components when you diagnose multimedia files that are not playing properly after installing multimedia software or multiple Code packages on your computer. This happens when Windows Media Player uses the filter or codec of your newly installed software. You can fix it by doing one of the command-line options: to save details of your multimedia components into regular text file [/stext ]; into tab-delimited text file [/stab ]; into tabular text file [/stabular ]; into HTML file [shtml ].
