    Encoder encodes the file in specified format while decoder decodes it. :D

    encoding ,decoding can be seen in two ways ..
    #one is signal processing or in transmission:
    encoder provides single channel output for multiple inputs..for distribution purposes while decoder do just opposite..

    #and the other is in format change(compressing decompressing algos.)
    for audio or video files..
    hope this helps..
