I have a flash video player a developer in our group wrote that is reporting slightly longer times for files than other applications (about 10 seconds over 30 minutes of video or audio).  I think this is because the adobe flash player uses a different codec than the one installed on my system.  Coincidentally VLC media player (which also doesnt rely on an installed codec) shows the same time as the flash player.

My question is, what is the codec is VLC using and where can I download it?  I want to install it over the codec that comes with windows so the timing in all my programs will be the same (so when creating closed captions the timing isn't annoyingly off).

Thank you

Many of VLC's codecs are provided by the libavcodec library from the FFmpeg project, but it uses mainly its own muxer and demuxers. It also supports playback of encrypted DVDs on Linux by using the libdvdcss DVD decryption library.
