Compared to Apple MPEG-4, 3ivx MPEG-4 encodes up to twice as fast, producing the same quality video at half the size.
The 3ivx decoder components play back most MP4, M4A, 3GP, MOV and AVI files with MPEG-4 Video and MPEG-4 AAC Audio. Supported MPEG-4 variants include DivX 3 through 6, Apple MPEG-4 and Xvid. The audio decoder can play MPEG-4 High Efficiency and Low Complexity AAC audio encoded by Nero AAC, iTunes and others. The components work with Windows Media Player, the QuickTime Player and any other compatible applications
3ivx MPEG-4 5.0.5 produces noticeably higher quality video than other decoders due to its high quality post-processing filters, and because of its core design and optimization maintains a record-breaking speed.
The 3ivx encoder components produce industry-leading compact high quality MPEG-4 Video and Audio and are distributed as plug-ins for DirectShow as well as plug-ins for QuickTime and Video for Windows. This allows you to encode MPEG-4 Video and Audio in AVI, MOV or MP4 files with the encoding application of your choice.
3ivx MPEG-4 encoded video can be played back by QuickTime 6 or 7 without the need for any additional component to be installed.
MP4 Export functionality has been added to the 3ivx Media Exporter for QuickTime, allowing easy export of high quality 3ivx MP4 files from iMovie, Final Cut Pro and other QuickTime Applications. The resulting MP4’s are directly compatible with most MP4 Players, including Apple's iPhone and AppleTV.

a shareware codec? ridiculous, This is the US capitalist system gone to psychotic extents.

You know, I wouldn't mind if a codec was commercial and wanted money because it was really GOOD but this codec is REALLY bad. It's like comparable quality to Mpeg-1 for k/sec and that's using a 352x240 15fps 128k/sec encoding ! And I know what Mpeg-1 looks like at low bitrates cause I spent years encoding them !
To top it off, it =IS= commercial so you get a delicious cherry red candy notice striped across every frame that says, "3ivX Trial" and in case they think you're gonna miss seeing it, it blooming covers your entire video diagonally like a bad package stamp !
If you want to match 3ivx quality without the mouth-watering and savory stamp, just use the free version of TMPGENC to encode an MPEG-1 and compare the two for yourself. That's sad, isn't it ?
Outside of that, if you want the best surpassing DivX, XviD, and even WMV9 or RealMagic, at 128k/sec IMHO is =STILL= Google Video Codec (VP8) which (thankfully) =IS= 100% Free although at this point in the game deserves to be commercial quality software with the comparative tests I've run it on so far.
Grab it quick before it =ISN'T= free is all I can offer you at this stage in your video encoding sessions !
3ivx MPEG-4 consists of MPEG-4 Video and File Format components for authoring and playback of MPEG-4 media.
