Morgan M-JPEG Codec

The Morgan M-JPEG codec has the ability to compress and also to playback any full screen video at more than 30 frames per second. This without even compromising the quality even  replacing normal hardware solutions which is based on additional hardware.

The codec is another property codec which you have to pay for. The free or trial version has been added below much like others. This allows for video compression that uses the Motion-JPEG (M-JPEG) algorithm. Like other codecs it is used to also compress as well as decompress video data. The M-JPEG even though propriety, is used widely in video compression in digital cameras as well as in video editing software such as Adobe. See also the vfw codec on here as well as the Panasonic mpeg4.

Morgan Multimedia developed the codec as the company specialises in video and audio codecs as well as filters. As stated before that codec is used in many software products for fast encoding and decoding. This especially in post production of video shoots. You will also note that it is used in video editing software, such as Adobe Premiere, Avid Media Composer, and Final Cut Pro. This as it supports various color spaces, resolutions as well as the frame rates in videos. The codec is very versatile.

Finally the codec is not as widespread as H.264 or HEVC. Also this is a lossy compression format so some quality does get lost during compression. So if you want really high quality video with a small file size. Then see and compare other codecs as well. See also the VirtualDub Player as well as the Sunplus 32-bit Compressor and CamStudio Lossless Codec.
