The XviD Codec is a video encoding and decoding (playback) codec designed to compete with the popular DivX codec.
The quality of the codec is extremely good (in most cases, better than DivX), and encoding speed is very fast as well, so it is at least worth a try. Plus it's free :)

Most encoding software that supports DivX encoding will also support XviD encoding. The same goes for multimedia players, and standalone players.

Change Log for new version:
    What's New:

  • - {core}: Fixed bug when frame-drop (N-VOP) feature is used in combination with packed B-frames

  • - {core}: Fixed potential crash on AMD64/EMT64 architecture.-

  • {core}: Fix for visual_object_verid vs. video_object_layer_verid problem.-

  • {core}: Ensure intervening bytes are preserved in BitstreamInit()-

  • {vfw}: Prevent segfault when encoding application calls compress_end with NULL codec context-

  • {vfw}: Profile definitions updates.
