Codecs are increasing as the number of ways to store music and video for online users is increasing. We need various codecs loaded onto our player environment or our system to actually interpret the media content at hand. The distribution of the codecs for various can be done using mobile agents so that they can look for the appropriate codec and distribute it for the user, if it is not available on the system for a specific type of encoded media content. The aim of this paper is to devise a mechanism for this, using mobile agents. So, a media content player architecture, called MAMP (Mobile Agent Media Player), based on mobile agents is suggested to acquire the appropriate codecs based on the media content being played with the provision of cached information of the codecs available for faster and efficient search on different servers on the World Wide Web.
