RECENTLY UPDATED
XviD 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.

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I still was using the outdated XviD compiled by Nic, and during the last two days, I've messed around with the latest Jawor's modified build.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.

I have been using Koepi's builds for a number of years, and am able to not only get great enjoyment watching properly decoded videos with it, but also excellent control, extreme quality (when you know what you're doing) and high configurability from this codec. The only drawback there might be for people new to encoding movies and how codecs work is that they might be a little confused about the amount of configurable parameters, but in my book, the more room you have to work with without needing to manually configure a command-line (which would be the only way to do even close to the same in divx) the better. Excellent codec for DVD encoding of any sort of material, and full control over the process. Nothing but thumbs up about that!

the only codec for mpeg-4 asp out there in my opinion. easy to use , ultra tweakable, extremely asm optimized and unparalled quality make this the ONLY asp worth using . if you need 'divx' for a dvd player just change the fourcc and enjoy

Dont pay for DivX because XviD is free and gives you all the configuration options you need for excellent quality video output.
Some people may be put off by the interface but with a little messing about with the options you soon get to understand this tool.Just use your common sense.
I think some options can just be left to default.
If you want good quality and speedy encoding set your desired bitrate and just disable VHQ and Chroma Motion modes and set MSP to like 3-Medium or 4-High and of course dont disable them and set MSP to 6-Ultra High if you want quite slow but superb quality.
It only takes about 30 minutes of fiddling with this tool to get started.
Why didn't I switch from DivX to Xvid sooner!

The results are great BUT.. and its a big but... the new 1.2 and 1.1 versions are with a different (and IMHO confusing) interface. All the existing guides telling you how to do 2 pass encoding are now void and useless.

The author could well make this a LOT easier if it was made possible to easily specify the settings at the start for 2 pass jobs and then just get it going. Using Virtualdub you have to create a Firstpass.avi (or whatever) and then a SecondPass.avi for the final result. Not "userfriendly".

I was using Divx 5.11 pro, using the modes that take forever to encode. But Xvid v1.x blows away the quality of the divx codec and in a fraction of the time.

I find some of the settings can be a bit daunting. The bitrate calculator helps a lot, and being able to specify target sizes is a pretty good feature.

Can I advise anyone using this codec that if they want to make an xvid that'll work in an mpeg4 compatible DVD player (e.g. Kiss players), then they should NOT use the quarter pel or global motion compensation. Shame, I know, but not all players can handle this.

For those who have converting/burning problems with X-Vid,try changing the 4CC on your file of choice. Go to Start Menu- All Programs-XVid-AviC(4CC Changer), click the ... button, select yur xvid file, it will say xvid ect.@ change both settings to Divx @ "WALLA" Its ready to burn. U could also try Windows Movie Maker#2 to edit it(finished files usually come out WMV, but it is slow).

Divx is dead (at least it's dead for me!)

It plain and simple doesn't work right, and is utter useless bullshit. I have a bunch of xvid files which I'd love to burn to dvd, but cannot since just about anything I try to convert them with shows nothing but pictures that keep going blocky and black, with a refresh every so often. And no, it isn't improperly encoded files I'm working with, vlc plays it back perfectly, but that does me little good in converting it to mpg to be able to burn to dvd. Absolutely nothing will do that. And the xvid codec is so buggy, whenever it's installed in my computer it makes error messages pop up anytime I do anything with windows media. Avoid XVID at all costs, it does nothing but create trouble

At first when I heard about this free divx offspring codec, i didnt have much faith in it, thinking "if developers can't even make a proper date/version in its name, then what to expect from the rest of it..."
Well, I was wrong, and now with its version 1.0.0 i have to admit it is the best high compression level avi codec out there.
XviD is now really long way from those first hacked by Gej versions of Microsoft's MPEG-4, which most of us knew as divx3 :)

And did I mention XviD is totally free?
Free as in NO-shareware, NO-nagware, NO-adware, NO-money?

Test run on Win2K Pro and Win XP Home. I have upgraded by previous report, as I am getting more comfortable with congiguring and using. Checked around the 'net for other guides besides Doom9 and I believe I found a good one at: www.everwicked.com/content/XviD_Guide/
I found some others at afterdawn.com, and others.

MY XviD MOVIES PLAY PERFECTLY GREAT IN MY LITE-ON LVD-2002!!!

XviD IS 100% COMPATIBLE WITH MANY MANY MANY STANDALONE DVD-DivX PLAYERS!!!!!!!!

I have heard and read for some time now about DivX, XviD and MPEG4. I finally decided to try the XviD codec that comes packaged with Gordian Knot (version 1 beta 3, june 2003), based on the codec comparison done by doom9.org and others opinions. Very very very nice results, for sure. The only draw back so far was the configuration for 1-pass and 2-pass and other parameters that I have no idea what they mean. I just set it up using the doom9.org XviD guide. I did a Tarzan (animated 1hr 28min) and a college football game (1 half = 1hr 20min). Quality replication was very good. It worked on my WinXP laptopp and Win2K Pro desktop.

I am sure my scores will go up, a I learn it a bit more. So far so good.
