I have been ffdshow for about 3 years or more now. I use simply to convert DivX/XviD avi's to VCD/SVCD and DVD. Never had a problem with freezing or anything that others have commented on. Also there is a nice configuration tool to control the software, i dont mess with it too much, but its there if you need to. I like this much better than having to install seperately DivX 3 / 5 and XviD codecs.

Excelent program, can do a lot. Was the only decoder in use, until discovered that the last version (20041012 or the version before, I'm not sure which was installed) have problem with some type of .avi (XviD made from camera shot). My computer simply restart or became instable. Checked with 3 movies of the same type and the result was the same. Uninstalled ffdshow and installed XviD codec (XviD 1.0.1 (05062004) version) and the movie was OK.
Anyway, the best decoding software I used ever and make a good team with VobSub (not sure if is really necessary VobSub, to lazzy to check).

I use it for 2 years on my 2 machines (XP Sp1 and 98SE). Extremely usefull to add permanent subtitles to AVI and VCD's.

Maybe they read my comments and fixed the bugs. If they have then I take back what I said before.

Contrary to the other comment here, this FIXED all the problems I had with XP and TMPGEnc .."index scan" and various Directshow problems which led TMPGEnc to crash whenever Vobsub tried to load a sub...

I have always been a fan of Ffdshow until now. I discovered through chance that all my Tmpgenc Xvid to Mpeg conversion errors e.g freezing, crashing etc while converting where being caused by this evil thing. I uninstalled it and used the proper Xvid/DivX codecs instead and magically my Tmpgenc conversions became error free. Don't use this if you convert Xvid/DivX to Mpeg using TMPGenc - you'll be pulling your hair out if you do.

Version 20040319 causes ASF, WMV and probably most other Windows Media Formats to play at sporadic speeds, especially if you try to seek through them. Reverted to the last version and this problem does not exist.

Been a pretty decent tool other than this most recent problem.

This is a cool decoder. Try it out, it allows you a large number of visual enhancements to your Xvid and similar video playback.

Highly configurable, has resizing & aspect correction, noise & sharpen filters, & much more. This is my choice for DivX (3,4, or 5) playback.

Great filter. It can play almost anything you would want. My version is from Dec. 02 so newer versions are probably available, but I have had no problems with it yet. It has so many post-proccessing options that it can be a little overwhelming if you want to try them and a little hard to test because the options don't take effect right away.
