There are other XVid decoders around but this one is the best. Even the others that also make similar XVid codecs say so.

WRFan...I run any Xvid encoded movie (with Koepi's codec, I didn't try Nic's on this computer) ina Pentium II 400 mhz, 64MB RAM and S3 ViRGE 4MB...that's a s***ty computer and it works great with BSplayer 1.0...if you want a lighter filter try ffdshow...it sucks but it's the lightest filter I've found...

WRFan, you must be a complete n00b.
XviD is the best mpeg4 codec next to none.

I used to be a huge fan of DivX, but that was back when there weren't many high quality alternatives. Since then, I have become an avid supporter of XviD. That being said, I completely disagree with WRFan's post and I feel it has no merit. I've been using the XviD codec for a long time and have had absolutely no problems with it. I have/had several computers, ranging from a Celeron 450Mhz to a P4 3Ghz workstation, and they are all able to play back XviD videos flawlessly and without 100% CPU usage. Since WRFan failed to give any specific information (other than some unrelated rambling about changing the video file's header) I'm assuming he's using some dinosaur of a computer, hence the problems. Once again, XviD is a superb format and the price is right. :)

That is the most ignorant statement i've ever heard. Try a different player. A half way decent computer can play xvid and other mpeg 4 advanced simple profile really easily. Don't complain about the software when you yourself haven't a clue what you are doing.

I hate this codec. similarly to divx, it eats all computer resources. but, as opposed to divx, one can't simply change the header to MS mpeg4 decoder. the advantage of the MS decoder is that it doesn't eat much cpu power, so I always change the header from divx to MS mpeg4 before playing the movie. but it doesn't work with xvid. in some rare cases one can change the header from xvid to divx, but it doesn't really help, because divx also eats all computer power. I am still searching for a xvid decoder that eats less than 60 percent of the cpu power.

Nic's and Koepi's codecs are compiled differently, hence they might have different performance levels, although the functionnality should obviously be the same. Some reports suggest that Koepi's codec might be slightly faster, but I haven't really noticed any major speed difference.

Can anyone tell me if this is better or what differences it has to Koepi's XVID builds?
