The benefit of open source software such as Xvid is that it is being improved and updated on a consistent basis. Xvid, a free software distributed under the GNU public license, features lumi masking, b-frames, trellis quantization, as well as global and quarter pixel compensation and much more. Xvid takes away some of the information that is deemed not necessary so that it can always achieve high compression rates. Xvid capabilities can compress video ratios of 200 to 1, if not more, depending on your systems capabilities.
Xvid uses many technologies as an implementation of video compression technology, commonly known as MPEG-2. This can be copied onto a CD or a DVD, although some set-top players do not support this software. So choose your player carefully, or download the audio and video player with the free program. Xvid is always secure to use and open sourced, meaning faster and more reliable file sharing and downloads.
Although Xvid was developed for use on a PC, it has recently been developed to work with Mac and iMac, as well as Linux. Xvid is currently working on a better Quicktime, which in time will become part of the core code base. So look out for improvements on a common basis.
There is no spyware or adware included in the Xvid program. Anyone can check for instability by reviewing the Xvid source code. This makes using Xvid, safe, easy, and effective to use. Xvid also offers the best in quality and effectiveness, quite comparable (if not surpassing) some of the expensive programs on the market. This makes Xvid top of the line when it comes to open source file sharing
