x264 Video Codec helps you encode your video streams in the popular H.264/MPEG-4 AVC format. With this powerful encoder, the process of encoding becomes much simpler and more reliable.

Before starting, read the "Is VP9 better than H264?" guide to learn more about these video codecs and their performance.

If you're looking to decode videos, you have several options to choose from. You can install applications like FFDShow, DivX H.264 Decoder, or LAV Filters on your computer.

Alternatively, you can use media players like VLC, PotPlayer or KMPlayer, which support H.264 internally, eliminating the need for additional codecs or filters.

Please note that VFW and installer options have been removed, so there is no GUI, just Command-Line (CLI) versions. Instead, you can try using x264Gui, x264 VfW, TX264, Leiming's x264 GUI (closed development), or the populars MeGUI and StaxRip for your encoding needs.

x264 is the new hotness of encoders. Compared to XviD and DivX, there really is no comparison.

Also, interlaced is supported now, and works amazing. You can archive interlaced material for more fluid and natural, TV look.
