The Verba system is able to store recorded video and telepresence calls in a special format, called VF (Verba Media Format). Standard Windows Media Player cannot support this file type, so the Verba Unified Media Codec has to be installed on every computer, which would like to play back VF files.

You will need this codec for silent monitoring (listening into ongoing calls) over the web application. For silent monitoring please make sure to open UDP port range 16384-16500 on your client PCs where you install the Verba Unified Media Codec.
