Codecs are pieces of software used to compress and decompress audio and video files, enabling efficient storage and transmission. Common examples include AC3, AAC, divx, VORBIS, x264 and xvid, among others.
At Hostinger, codecs are specifically supported on Virtual Private Servers (VPS) due to their resource-intensive nature. VPS provides dedicated resources, ensuring smooth codec functionality.
With VPS being a self-managed hosting solution, you will need to install and configure all codecs and related applications by yourself. Although it may require some technical knowledge, it will allow you to produce and deliver your multimedia content with full control and flexibility.
