XviD Codec


XviD codec is mpeg-4 video codec. Xvid is an open-source research project focusing on video compression and is a collaborative development effort. All code is released under the terms of the GNU GPL license. The Xvid video codec implements MPEG-4 Simple Profile and Advanced Simple Profile standards. It permits compressing and decompressing digital video in order to reduce the required bandwidth of video data for transmission over computer networks or efficient storage on CDs or DVDs. Due to its unrivalled quality Xvid has gained great popularity and is used in many other GPLed applications, like e.g. Transcode, MEncoder, MPlayer, Xine and many more.

The main problem of XviD install error is your system file mismatch. I solved this problem by the followings

1. Install or Upgrade your Windows Media Player to the latest version
2. Restart your computer
3. Install XviD any version you need
4. All completed

System Files mismatch for error

Installed the latest version 1.3.2 on my Windows 7 machine and was no longer able to preview my avisynth scripts with Media Player or Media Player Classic; however preview still worked with Virtual Dub. I uninstalled version 1.3.2 and installed my older version then all worked properly again.

A bit unsure about using version 1.3.2 because I get an error when installing:

"Problem running post-install step. Installation may not complete correctly
DirectShow filter (32-bit) register failed!"

I still was using the outdated XviD compiled by Nic, and during the last two days, I've messed around with the latest Jawor's modified build. I have to say, the VfW encoder has improved a lot IMHO (many many thanks, Jawor). As for the DirectShow decoder, old news, it still is slower than ffdshow, so better not use it. For the ones who can do without potentially-problematic installers, there is a 7-zipped archive --- just unzip, unrar, and enjoy.

Latest 1.3.0 build tries to install a driver for my old Soundblaster card on an old XP machine. This results in no audio. I was unable to fix it short of doing a system restore and removing XVID. The older 1.2.2 works fine.
