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.
