x264 Video Codec is a software tool allowing you to encode H.264/MPEG-4 AVC video streams. This operation becomes a lot easier due to this reliable and powerful encoder.
In case you want to decode, you can install either or the following applications on your computer: FFDShow, DivX H.264 Decoder or LAV Filters.

A media player that supports H.264 internally is also a good solution if you don't want to mess with codecs, filters, etc:
- MPlayer, there are few interesting frontends for Windows: MPlayer GUI, MPlayer Frontend
- or VLC, PotPlayer, KMPlayer, etc.

VFW and installer were removed! So, you can try the x264Gui, x264 VfW, TX264, Leiming's x264 GUI (closed development) or the famous MeGUI.

This command line application comes with presets and you can select between various profiles, such as baseline, high, main and extended.

The main features which make x264 Video Codec a good choice for your computer are its ability to encode 4 or more 1080p streams at a time, offering advanced psychovisual optimizations, supporting various applications (TV broadcast, low-latency video applications and web video), offering support for web video services such as Facebook, Vimeo and YouTube etc.

x264 Video Codec will amaze you with its advanced encoder features: adaptive B-frame placement, CAVLC/CABAC entropy coding, custom quantization matrices, B-frames as references / arbitrary frame order, 8x8 and 4x4 adaptive spatial transform, scenecut detection, parallel encoding on multiple CPUs and many others.

x264 Video Codec gives you access to various video technical details and allows you to change input and output configurations (framerate, sample aspect ratio, maximum number of frames to e encoded, the first frame to encode etc.).

The application supports two filters: cropping (define new dimensions by introducing the exact values) and resizing (it helps you avoid stretching).

In a few words, x264 Video Codec is an application whose main purpose is to help you encode videos, followed by editing options. Advanced users will definitely find it very helpful.
