Questions about Win95 and Video Codecs

1. Are all codecs able to compress as well as decompress?

2. If not - how does Win95 know the difference?

3. What are the 'n' things that must be done to let Win95 access a codec?

eg. (1) add VIDC.codec=codec.dll to system.ini
(2) etc..

4. What makes a codec 'usable' by Cornell Cu-SeeMe? Unusable by CU-SeeMe?
