The Morgan M-JPEG Codec is superior to the Microsoft MJPEG codec as it encodes 4 to 10 times faster.
Another feature of this codec is the ability to play “old” hardware MJPEG AVI files such as DC10, DC20, DC30, Buz and Rainbow Runner without needing a specific hardware codec.
MJPEG and MOV files obtained with DSLR, DigiCam, WebCam and NetCam are supported too.
The Morgan M-JPEG Codec can perform realtime software MJPEG compression using capture cards which don’t support hardware compression.
Furthermore, the codec is compliant with a variety of formats (all MJPEG formats such as 4:2:2, 4:1:1, 4:2:0, MJPG, dmb1 and jpeg) and with various Windows versions: 2000, XP, Vista and 7. The Morgan M-JPEG Codec supports MMX, SSE, SSE2 and Multicore optimizations and it allows you to edit MJPEG projects without using specific hardware codec.
The most common colorspaces supported by Morgan M-JPEG Codec are RGB, YUV, RGB32, YUY2 and UYVY.
The codec is DirectShow compliant and it is available both in 32 and 64-bit versions. A configuration window is available so you can enable or disable compression and decompression, according to your needs and preferences.
With the Morgan M-JPEG Codec you can play MJPEG files, both in AVI and MOV formats, without needing a special hardware codec and even if your systems lacks the capture cards supporting MJPEG compression.
This codec is able to compress and play video at more than 30 pictures by second while preserving great image quality and without needing extra cards or a dedicated chipset.
