What is XVID?
XviD is an open source MPEG-4 video codec library distributed under the
terms of the GNU General Public License. This is not a format. It utilizes
MPEG-4 ASP (Advanced Simple Profile) compression. Videos encoded with it
are referred to as MPEG-4 ASP videos, so they can be decoded by all MPEG-4
compatible decoders. An open source MPEG-4 video codec. XviD was created
to offer a free alternative to other commercial video codecs. With usual,
so-called proprietary software where source code is not available to the
public, users are stuck in case the creating company goes bankrupt or discontinues
the product. The source code, however, was placed under a restrictive license
and only members of the DivX Advanced Research Centre (DARC) had write
access to the project CVS. Primarily, XviD competed with the proprietary
DivX codec, and there was pretty mush patent controversy around this software.
The format was created to offer a free alternative to other commercial
video codecs, and despite being open source its quality and efficiency
has made it one of the most popular video codecs online. Many of these
applications are Free Software as well and can be used free of charge.
So there's a whole ecosystem of free tools available around Xvid that help
you carry out almost any task you can imagine around digital video. XviD
is an open source MPEG-4 video codec designed for everyone. Xvid is not
a video format - it is a program (codec) for compressing and decompressing
to the MPEG-4 ASP format. The XviD codec makes it possible to compress
a full-length DVD-quality movie enough to fit on one or two CDs, depending
on the length of the movie. To play XviD videos you first need to install
the XviD codec on your computer.
What is MKV?
MKVs are multi-media containers that may contain several subtitle tracks
that can be turned on or off as needed. All Matroska file types (to include
MKV) are open and free to use without license fee. The name "matroska"
was derived from the Russian word "matryoshka," referring to
the Russian dolls that contain many dolls within one doll. A complete CD
or movie with subtitles can be stored within a single file. With this capability,
it can provide support for a variety of audio and video compression formats.
This is a play on the container (media within a form of media/doll within
a doll) aspect of the matryoshka as it is a container for visual and audio
data. MKV founder Steve Lhomme left the project after disagreeing with
the MCF project leader Lasse Karkkainen regarding using the Extensible
Binary Metal Language (EBML) over another format. This format is currently
not supported by all operating systems or multimedia software and requires
the latest codec packs installed in order to view the files. This format,
with the file extension of '.mkv', is based on EBML (Extensible Binary
Meta Language), which allows changes to be made easily if need be, without
breaking old file supports. This is why it is said that "Matroska
is designed with the future in mind". As the name implies (the Russian
egg-shaped dolls contained within one another) Matroska can contain video
(DivX, Xvid, RV9, etc), sound (MP3, MP2, Ogg, AC3, AAC, DTS, PCM), as well
as subtitles (SRT, ASS, SSA, USF, etc) in the same file. Files are store
in .MKV file extensions. Matroska is not a video codec as it is often thought
to be, but a container, or an envelope that can hold many different codecs
at the same time.
