How to add an alternative codec

Important: Third party codecs are not supported and installing them could have adverse effects on your Symphony installation.


Symphony has built-in support for many codecs.

To add an alternative codec, add the name of the codec to the manual global configuration:

  1. Edit %appdata%\Aimetis\acc.ini and add codec parameters, for example:
    MJPG=Morgan MJPEG Decompressor
    H264=CoreAVC Video Decoder
    where codec=<codec name>
  2. Save the acc.ini and then restart Symphony Client for the changes to take effect.
