Audio & Video software allows you to play with multimedia files. This can be done in one of two ways, You can edit or you can play the audio and video formats. Audio & Video software can be divided into the following four categories:

  • Audio editors,
  • Audio players,
  • Video editors,
  • and Video players.

The fifth category of audio and video software are codecs or codec packs which enable playback of the files. An example of such a piece of software is K-Lite Codec Pack.

Audio editors are tools that let you cut and join audio samples and also add interesting digital effects such as reverb or echo. An example of such software is Audacity or GoldWave. Other audio editors function as digital synthesizers and let you easily compose music. Example: Cubase.

Audio players let you listen to music, which is either stored on a computer hard drive (an example of such a tool is Winamp) or streamed (Spotify).

Video editors are programs that allow you to create y our own videos. Think of such software as Vegas Pro or Adobe Premiere. They have many cool features such as a capability of adding interesting transitions between scenes or having a separate audio track with music that will make your movie a joy to watch.

Video players let you enjoy your movies. These, again, can be streamed – this can be done by the Netflix app – or played from the files stored on your hard drive: VLC media player or KMPlayer or GOM Player.
