Koepi's XviD Codec 1.3.4

4.37 from 27 Reviews
Koepi's XviD Codec is a pack of tools for decoding and encoding MPEG-4 video files.
It's a codec similar but superior to DivX, and used in most recent movies. XviD is one of the best solutions for MPEG-4 videos.

Weighing less than 1MB, Koepi's XviD Codec decodes your XviD videos so you can play them on any computer and using any media player.

During installation, you are offered the possibility to customize Koepi's XviD Codec; these options include film effects, flipping, aspect ratio and so on.

Additionally, you can enable or disable support for DivX, DX50 and MP4V formats, in case you want the application to decode those formats, too.

The main advantages provided by Koepi's XviD Codec are PMVFast and EPZS with diamond and square pattern motion estimation, fullpixell and halfpixel, precision, adaptive quantization / Luminance masking, I and P Frame encoding, inter4v mode, both MPEG4 and H263 quantization and custom quant matrices.

The latest releases of Koepi's XviD Codec have focused on optimizing installation process. Thus, a new sub-directory "Advanced" has been added, and you will notice a new tool, Xvid MiniConvert, which converts playable content to Xvid with MP3 audio in AVI containers.

Moreover, if you have ever dealt with incompatibility issues, you will notice that the new Xvid installer prevents the following problem: DivX installers deploying their own AVI and limited MKV splitters and disabling other splitters for these formats; consequently, many files were not decoded properly. It is not the case anymore with Koepi's XviD Codec.

After deploying this small-sized application to your computer, you will definitely be able to play XviD based videos, no matter what media player you prefer. Enjoy better quality and avoid annoying incompatibilities by taking a couple of minutes to install Koepi's XviD Codec.

Changes in XviD 1.3.2 [30.05.2011] :

- It is mainly a bugfix release mainly for non-x86 and Unix users. But also, for the Windows users the new installer has some interesting features. In new installations, the tiny encoder xvid_encraw will be put into a new sub-directory "Advanced". For the ease-of-use, a new tool is included as well - Xvid MiniConvert. It will take most playable content and convert it to Xvid with MP3 audio in .avi containers.

- The installer also fixes a small annoyance which the DivX installer causes - it installs its own .avi and limited .mkv splitter and disables other splitters for these formats. This leads to the situation that many files can't be decoded properly. The situation is even worse on x64 systems, where that splitter is registered but totally missing. The new Xvid installer fixes this issue.

Disregard comment#9, and total b*llnuts!
This is one fantastic piece of software, and good e.g. in movie archiving: DivX -certified players play movies encoded with XviD, you can put as many as six on a single DVD without any noticeable quality loss.
Of course, x264/h264 is more modern; more efficient in compression with better picture quality, but not as well supported by players as DivX/XviD. And DivX is commercial, which means you should pay for something you get for free anyway, and don't even have to break any laws ;)
So download this one, support open source software (or good sw at least) and start encoding!

Very good freeware codec, easy to install.

I use this codec to encode films in AVI format with VirtualDub. The XviD configuration is made for experts and provides users with useful settings to experiment with. It includes a Bitrate Calculator which lets you enter a desired target size (in kbytes) and calculates the according target bitrate (in kbps) to match the filesize as near as possible. The same can be done for audio bitrates.

For example, a DVD film with a common length of 90 minutes can be compressed into a target filesize of 665600 kbytes (650 MB) or 716800 kbytes (700 MB) only! Such a video file could be stored on a single CD-R. The balance between compression ratio and image quality is excellent. Even at lower bitrates and higher compression the results are sufficient.
