Cinepak Codec is a video codec used in the early versions of QuickTime and Microsoft Video for Windows. Even though this format has been superseded by other and now MPEG-4 and H.264 are the most popular standards, you might still need this old codec.
Cinepak is a lossy video codec developed at the beginning of the 90s, but videos compressed with it can still be played in most common media players (including Windows Media Player).

Usually, Cinepak is installed at the same time with the Windows operating system, since it is part of its multimedia components.

If you have skipped those components, the codec itself is not enough.

CVID is the FOURCC used by this codec.

In order to install Cinepak, you need to extract the DLL, copy it to C:\windows\system32 and run this registry script.

In case you already have Cinepak installed to your computer and you simply want to update to a new version, all you have to do is copying ICCVID.DLL over the top of the copy you already have. You need to go to the” \windows\system” folder if you use Windows 9X, or to the “\winnt\system32” folder if you use Windows NT/2K/XP.

Lately, some new Cinepak installers (compiled & packed by Oto) have been added, for 64-bit and 32-bit operating systems. This means the codec is compatible with Windows 7 and Vista.

In case you are using older operating system, try the OEMSETUP.INF file included in the archive for installation.

Cinepak Codec is one of those codecs you usually have installed on your computer without you even knowing. On the other hand, if it misses, you will probably have a hard time finding the reason why you can’t play some video files. Once you know that you need Cinepak Codec, the problem becomes easier to solve.
