Xvid is one of the top four video compression codecs. Files converted with this codec are playable on consumer media players that support the Mpeg4 format. Xvid is based on the DivX codec, previously available for encoding. Unlike the latter, this codec can be downloaded and programmed to your needs for free.

Codec is used mainly on platforms of different Windows versions, but thanks to the open source code it can be used in other operating systems after proper compilation. The compression library interface is in English.

Actually the file converted by the Xvid codec is in MPEG-4 ASP video format. This format is supported by DivX players, but Xvid has a rich conversion functionality. Therefore, not all changes made by this codec can be displayed correctly on DivX devices. With the increasing use of Xvid, its support began to be included in the latest versions of both software and hardware viewers.

The growing popularity of Xvid is due to the availability of its encoding toolkit and the possibility of free downloads. Codec uses technology BVOPs, which compresses not the key frames of the image, to maintain the original quality of video.

Inclusion of interlacing, i.e. compression between the frame fields, contributes to compression without loss of quality. Global Motion Compensation technology improves the quality of dynamic scenes. Professional users can apply these and many other built-in technologies, and for beginners there are preset profiles in the settings.
