stay away!!!!

on intel-macs all your 3ivx encoded films wont play! I have not found any possibility to convert them to any format, that works on intel native!

(you can view the fims, if you tell quicktime to run under "rosetta" or use vlc, but cannot convert them. so sooner or later they will be non-playabel)

"Today's necessity (plus some help for Peterpayne)"

This codec for Quicktime is todays necessity for most Mac users, without it Quicktime is around about useless at handling any of todays .avi formatted movies. It is also the codec of choice for encoding to a lot of new "movie producers" with good quality output. peterpayne this is not a program/app. but rather an additional codec. I don't know anything about "Mactheripper" (only have a 233 iMac so not into DVD ripping etc.), but I assume it outputs in mpeg in which case you could use Quicktime PRO if you have already purchased that to export it to another format selecting 3ivx as the codec via the options button in the QT dialog box. If you don't have the PRO version of Quicktime you can use a program/application called MPEG Streamclip that is a free download and does much the same thing as Quicktime PRO in the export of .mpegs. If you are still none the wiser the paperwork that comes with the 3ivx download has a link to their website that has some excellent friendly help forums that should be able to assist you.

Bugs Fixed

  • Core
    • Fixed an incompatibility issue caused by Mountain Lion's sandbox protection

Missing Features

  • Core
    • Interlaced decoding is not implemented for S-frames (GMC)

Permanent Issues

  • Core
    • XviD streams prior to build0000 (ie up to and including 0.9 stable series) with non-multiples of 16 are not MPEG-4 compliant and exhibit occasional glitches. There is no work-around.
    • NVops (not coded PVops) can be used to more efficiently represent dropped frames or frames which are identical to the previous frame. NVops are not correctly handled by the QuickTime MPEG-4 Stream hinter and will cause a -5402 error when attempting to hint a file which contains NVops. The solution is to not use NVop coding. The 3ivx DirectShow Media Muxer can be used to remove NVops from an already coded bitstream. (This is currently still an issue with QT6.5)
    • As decoder delay has been reduced by 1 frame, if the clip playing does not correctly indicate low_delay field - the first B span will jitter.

  • QT Codec
    • QuickTime 7's native datarate setting is now in kilobits/sec. There are
      1000 bits in a kilobit, and 1024 bytes in a kilobyte, according to the
      QuickTime Player. Due to a work-around for an error in QT7's kilobit->byte conversion, third party applications which do not use the QT7 codec selection dialog to obtain a datarate from the user (in kilobits/sec) may end up undershooting by a factor 1.024 (roughly 2.5%). In order to correct for this multiply the datarate you enter into affected applications by 1.024. This is only an issue when using QT7.
    • Quicktime does not allow decoding GMC in mp4 files, error 2010 dialog would generally pop out
    • In certain versions of QuickTime Player, if using a CTTS enabled MP4 file, the first frame displayed will be black.
    • If the first frame produced is black, the last frame displayed will be mis-predicted.
