What Codecs Are Loaded on My Computer?

Is there a way to tell which codecs are already loaded onto my Windows XP Pro computer?

I'm asking b/c sometimes I get a message like "This application needs Divix to run properly. Install Divix if it isn't already installed." Well I don't know if Divix is installed.

I don't want to just use the app until it potentially crashes. But I also don't want to (re)install Divix if I don't have to.

So how can I tell which codecs are installed on my computer?

Thanks much as always!

That will show you all the Video for Windows codecs but to see the DirectShow ones, you either need a tool as suggested by Harm or use Microsoft's GraphEdit.
