Editors' Review

+

XviD Video Codec will greatly expand the number of playable video formats on your computer. Additionally, you can use the built-in compression software to save disk space by shrinking videos you've watched without negatively impacting their quality.

Pros

Enhanced video support: If you're encountering a video that you can't play, XviD Video Codec may help you watch it, thanks to its wide support for video formats.

Fast compression: Through the software's MiniConvert feature, we were able to compress an AVI file from 50MB to 40MB in under a minute, and when we compared the two versions, we couldn't detect any drop in quality. Note that the compression feature is not compatible with all video formats; in our initial attempt at compression, we got an error while trying to compress an MP4 file.

Advanced settings: Using the dedicated Encoder and Decoder configuration apps, we were able to adjust advanced settings like the compression ratio, encoding type, post-processing, and aspect ratio. There is also a "Restore Defaults" option, which can come in handy if you cannot undo any adjustments you might have made.

Cons

Uninspired interface: All control panels and settings use the same tired design we've been looking at since Windows 95. While functional, the app's interface is certainly not enjoyable.

Bottom Line

If you have trouble playing a certain video you have on your PC, or you're just looking to save some disk space by compressing old movies, XviD Video Codec should be able to accomplish those tasks for you. And if you're into tweaking your codecs' performance, this open-source software will not let you down.

"Stay away from them!"

May 25, 2014  |  By minnie1001

 |  Version: XviD Video Codec 1.3.2

Pros

After you remove all the third party software they don't ask permission to install, you need to run your scans

Cons

You spam the crap out of peoples computers with out permission, I don't want Yahoo tool bar, optimize my pc, you suck!

Summary

Stay away. Go to real player cloud or an alternative. Dealing with sites like this that slide third party programs in isn't worth it. Nothing's fee.

"Test failed, I do not use it again until it fixed it."

November 01, 2012  |  By odin0

 |  Version: XviD Video Codec 1.3.2

Pros

It plays many different file formats.

Cons

No full DVD feature, it reads DVD extremely slow. It caused a lot of problems to the WMP codec setup.

Summary

A lot of problems. First I tried youtube, not playing, 2nd I tried many different format files it was ok. 3rd I tried DVD then problem started, such as slow reading, no dvd full feature. I compared with VLC, VLC has no problem. I installed it to two computers both of them almost the same problems. I uninstalled it. My desktop stopped playing DVD with WMP and PowerDVD 12. PowedDVD stuck and WMP got message of Digital Copyright Codec problems (cannot remember the exact message but something like this). I did system restore both of them. The laptop has no problems to play DVD. The problem I found on the desktop WMP was the codec setup. In WMP option-advance-codecs all of them were disabled. I re-setup it like the laptop then I am able to play dvd.

It was wasting my time and gave me a lot of confusion. Some of the codecs are still disabled.

"It works well"

October 22, 2011  |  By SJSF

 |  Version: XviD Video Codec 1.3.2

Pros

I compressed an 8.04 GB video file to a 4.80 GB file using this program without noticing any loss of quality.

Cons

It can be a very slow process if the file is too big.
It has an unimpressive GUI & a bunch of confusing configuration shortcuts.

Summary

The shortcut of the program will be created inside the Xvid folder in the start menu along with a bunch of other Xvid shortcuts. The shortcut to the actual program is called Xvid MiniConvert.
