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.

Xvid-1.1.3-27042008:
- Plugh pointed me to another bugfix that made it into CVS but wasn't backported to Xvid-1.1.3. There was an issue with motion vectors (MVs), an array was too small so a wrong MV could have been chosen in some cases. Since those MVs are costly bitrate-wise, it should have happened very seldom.


Xvid-1.1.3-12042008:
- Fixes an error that could occur when calling plugins and could result in the wrong frame being passed to a plugin.


Xvid-1.1.3-28062007:
- {core}: Fixed possible security issue in mbcoding.c


Xvid-1.1.2-01112006:
- {core}: Fixed bug when frame-drop (N-VOP) feature is used in combination with packed B-frames
- {core}: Fixed potential crash on AMD64/EMT64 architecture.

- {vfw}: Small updates.


XviD-1.0.3
Changelog:

Getting old now, but reliable. bitrates of 1500kbps give good results on a clean source. You can get away with much less if your source is pristine, but the artifacts and macroblocks are horrible when blown up on a HD TV if the codec is not set up correctly. So throw bit rate at it and you will like the end result.


Apr 21, 2018 Version: 1.3.5 OS: WinXP 64-bit Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10



Good old


Apr 17, 2018 Version: 1.3.5 OS: Windows 10 64-bit Ease of use: 8/10 Functionality: 7/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 5/10



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 ;)
