GSpot is a useful tool, which facilitates the user to view third-party pages with the help of available video codecs that are incorporated in the software package. Decoder filter is an interesting filter implemented in the application for viewing certain specific property pages, although this feature may not come into picture quite often. The settings are pretty similar to the Video compression set up, and can be handy while using an encoding filter to view certain third-party pages as well.

This software however has limited compatibility with the types of codecs available, and can’t play DMO, ACM or VFW codecs, so if the menu is grayed out for a particular filter it implies unavailability of that option.

But this software can prove to be worthy enough to solve or optimize problems many times… While trying to playback a property page Xvid codec is a useful solution and the user can perform a test right of a file followed by making a right click on the concerned decoder. At times this application can be amazing as the user can even deal with property pages from rarely used ancient codecs.
