Lagarith Lossless Video Codec 1.3.27

Updated: 9 Dec 2011

The Lagarith Lossless Video Codec is an outstanding tool operating in various colorspaces and providing excellent compression.
Its performance is comparable with that of the MSU Lossless Codec and FFV1.

The colorspaces that Lagarith Lossless Video Codec is compatible with are RGB24, RGB32, RGBA, YV12 and YUV2.

Aside from great image quality, the developers of the Lagarith Codec have also focused on the encoding speed.

The Lagarith Lossless Video Codec is based on Huffyuv and it has also taken some algorithms from AviSynth.

Compared to Huffyuv, which uses the Huffman method, Lagarith manages to offer higher image quality by using an arithmetic compression algorithm based on Run Length Encoding.

Lagarith definitely outperforms Huffyuv when it comes to high static scenes or highly compressible scenes.

Another advantage of the Lagarith Lossless Video Codec is decoding each video frame separately. By eliminating inter-prediction, joining, cutting and seeking become easier and more comfortable for the user.

Lagarith is a bit slower than Huffyuv, but its performance is superior. The data stream is much more compressible and the codec provides support for null frames and multithreading. When the previous frame is mathematically identical to the current, the current frame is discarded and the previous one is used, in order to save time and resources.

Although it is better and newer than its competitor, Huffyuv, the Lagarith Lossless Video Codec is also discontinued, as it has not been updated anymore since 2011.

Lagarith works on Windows XP, Windows 7 and Windows 7 64 bit, which makes it suitable for most multimedia users nowadays. Completely free, reliable and working perfect for thousands of users, the Lagarith Lossless Video Codec can still represent an option if you need exceptional video compression.
