Sharp G.726 Audio Codec

3.51 from 39 Reviews

Sharp G.726 Audio Codec is a piece of software enabling you to play MPEG4 files on your computer.

Install this application on your system, make sure you have Microsoft Windows Media Player 9 or higher and enjoy MPEG4 videos now!

The G.726 is an audio standard used in VoIP, camcorders and digital stills cameras.

When Sharp G.726 is missing, you'll get this error message: "The audio codec identified by the format tag 45 is required to play this file".

Install Sharp G.726 Audio Codec in order to fix the Audio Codec Tag 45 error.

This codec has not been updated since 2005 and is no longer signed by Microsoft, so its functionality may be limited on other operating systems than Windows XP.

This piece of software, not exceeding 1MB, is exactly what you need if you want to enjoy the MPEG4 format on your computer and view properly contents from VoIP and digital cameras.

Finally it works! Such an easy fix. That being said, has anyone had trouble with the sound? I can watch my videos through the HP quickplay, but I get no sound.

The other thing is that if I leave the files as ASX and move them into my Picasa 3 I can now watch them. Again, the issue is that I have no sound.

So close and yet so far.

Thanks for your help and it's a great site. I have been here before but never commented.

I agree with every one "Vista Sucks!!" The sharp G.726 Audio Codex don't work on my DELL. It worked fine on my HP Pavillion. When do we get some attention for this Microsoft error??

I've read a few reviews saying thanks for the advice on changing the asf files to asx files and people enjoying success thanks to the advice by christian, but can anyone tell me how I go about changing my asf files to asx files.
