XvidCore.dll is a file used by the “Xvid Video Codec” to help your computer run a variety of advanced movie formats, giving your system the ability to playback video in extremely high quality. Although this file is used regularly by the likes of Winamp, Xvid player and Windows Media Player, it’s continually causing a large amount of problems for your PC, which will lead to errors. In order to fix the errors you’re seeing, you should look to repair the various problems that could be causing the issue in the first place, which will likely be to do with Windows or some other problem that Windows has.
Typical errors caused by this file will show in this format:
- xvidcore.dll not found
- xvidcore.dll is missing
The way to resolve these errors is actually quite simple. The first step you need to take is to reinstall the Xvid video codec on your PC. Not only will this replace all the damaged files, but will also re-list many of the settings which may have been damaged or corrupted on your system. This can be done by clicking onto Start > Control Panel > Add / Remove Programs and then clicking the “Xvid Codec” listing (or the video codec listing you may have). Follow the on-screen instructions to uninstall, and then re-download a fresh copy of the program.
After that, it’s recommended you then perform a “registry scan” on your PC, with a registry cleaner tool. Registry scans focus around cleaning out the “Registry Database” – a central storage facility for all the files and settings which Windows uses to keep the likes of your desktop wallpaper and most recent emails. The registry is a central location for all the settings your PC requires to run, allowing it to load up all the files and settings it requires. The only problem is that it can quickly become corrupted and damaged – leading your PC to run much slower and with a lot of errors. To fix this problem, you should use a registry cleaner tool to fix the errors that Windows might have inside, which will not only boost the speed of your PC, but will also likely fix the xvidcore.dll error it has as well.
