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.

Becoming a bit dated as a codec, but still hanging on. You can get good results on a clean source using 1000kbps or more. Lower bit rates just show artifacts and flaws. I use this codec rarely, but it is pleasing to set up and relatively easy to use.

Jan 9, 2018 Version: 1.3.5 OS: Windows 10 64-bit Ease of use: 9/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 9/10

Give xvid enough bit rate and the output is very pleasing. Yes, h264 performs better at lower bitrates but anyone who knows anything in the video encoding game will tell you that h264 has a smoothing effect on grain and 'washes' out fine film detail, which xvid retains vastly better. H265 is worse than h264 in this respect of this smoothing. In my humble opinion Xvid at 1800/1900kbps true quality kicks in, but all depends on your source.

Jan 6, 2018 Version: 1.3.5 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10

This Codec is a MUST HAVE and performs fantastic, even in live capture. If you have a Smart Render Option in your NLE then your Movie is done in fraction of minutes and ready to be burned to a CD/DVD/BluRay Disk. Forget Divx because any certified DivX Device plays XviD Movies, even Game Consoles and DVB-T/DVB-T2/TNT-HD and Satellite Decoders with a Card Slot or USB Port. From me a total thumbs-up for the Developers of XviD, thank you so much Guys, great Job ;)

Dec 21, 2017 Version: XviD Codec 1.3.5 OS: Windows 10 64-bit Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10

Many including me, have great affection for xvid and have faithfully followed its development over the years. Though we may use h264 or avc mostly now, xvid is still very useful as it retains film grain much better than the others and leaves your source still looking authentic at good bitrates. Long may it reign!

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
