Convert AVI to Xvid
AVI to Xvid Converter Software converts AVI files to Xvid
fast. Xvid offers outstanding quality and performance clearly surpassing expensive,
competing products. Xvid allows you to create video for interoperable exchange
with portable or home multimedia devices as Xvid is widely supported in hardware.
Being open-source, Xvid is future-proof and secure to use.
Besides AVI and Xvid, the converter also supports common and uncommon video
and audio formats and protable devices such as MP2, WebM (VP8), M4V, WMA, Windows Phone, OGM, FLAC, etc. It could convert
WMV to SWF, RM to OGM, M2TS to FLAC, WebM to Android Tablet, M2TS to SPX (Speex), and so on.
AVI to Xvid Converter Software supports batch conversion and, is
full compatible with 32-bit and 64-bit editions of Windows 10/8/7/Vista/XP/2000.
What is AVI?
Audio Video Interleaved (also Audio Video Interleave), known by its initials
AVI, is a multimedia container format introduced by Microsoft in November
1992 as part of its Video for Windows technology. Video container or wrapper
format created by Microsoft; stores video data that may be encoded in a
variety of codecs; typically uses less compression than similar formats
such as .MPEG and .MOV. AVI and codec are inseparable. AVI is Microsoft's
response to Apple's QuickTime technology. As a derivative of the Resource
Interchange File Format (RIFF), AVI files are commonly tagged with metadata
in the INFO chunk. The third optional sub-chunk is identified by the "idx1"
tag which indexes the offsets of the data chunks within the file. For WAV
audio files, Broadcast Wave extensions were designed to standardize post-production
metadata, but an equivalent for AVI files has not emerged. One of the first
terms a digital video freshman gets to know is codec. AVI does not provide
a standardized way to encode aspect ratio information, with the result
that players cannot select the right one automatically (though it may be
possible to do so manually). There has been confusion over AVI files since
QuickTime added support for such. It is a special case of the RIFF (Resource
Interchange File Format). By way of the RIFF format, the audio-visual data
contained in the "movi" chunk can be encoded or decoded by software
called a codec, which is an abbreviation for (en)coder/decoder. Upon creation
of the file, the codec translates between raw data and the (compressed)
data format used inside the chunk. AVI was not intended to contain video
using any compression technique which requires access to future video frame
data beyond the current frame. Approaches exist to support modern video
compression techniques (such as MPEG-4) which rely on this function, although
this is beyond the intent of the original specification and may cause problems
with playback software which does not anticipate this use.
What is Xvid?
Xvid (formerly "XviD") is a video codec library following the
MPEG-4 standard, specifically MPEG-4 Part 2 Advanced Simple Profile (ASP).
There are a number of reasons for using XviD: XviD is free, and can be
obtained free of charge and is shipped together with many hardware devices;
While being free, XviD offers outstanding quality and performance clearly
surprising expensive, competing products; XviD allows you to create video
for interoperable exchange with portable or home multimedia devices as
XviD is widely supported in hardware; Being open-source, XviD is future-proof
and secure to use. Since it featured many patented technologies, Xvid 0.9.x
versions were confronted with license barriers in some countries. When
Sigma Designs released the supposedly rewritten REALmagic codec, the Xvid
developers immediately disassembled it and concluded that it still contained
Xvid code, only rearranged in an attempt to disguise its presence. The
Xvid developers decided to stop work and go public to force Sigma Designs
to respect the terms of the GPL. The Xvid profiles also permit the interoperable
creation of compressed video for use in hardware devices like personal
media players and mobile phones. Using Xvid, several hours of video can
be squeezed onto a USB stick in order to watch video on a portable device
on the road. Hence, Xvid can somewhat be seen as a ZIP for video. But unlike
ZIP, Xvid is not lossless. That means that a video after compression and
decompression with Xvid won't be identical to the original source. Typically
however, a difference to the source is visually imperceptible. Its purpose
is to compress video in order to allow for faster transmission over computer
networks or for more efficient storage on computer disks. Hence, XviD can
somewhat be seen as a ZIP archive for video.
