Nic’s XviD Codec

Firstly as you might know that the codec was developed by XviD itself. Secondly this was designed to be open-source software to compress video. Like other codecs to reduce the size of the file, while maintaining the quality of the video. The codec is based on the MPEG-4 video compression standard. This allows it to be used by a number of formats. These include the AVI, DivX, and MPEG-4. Finally it was known for its high compression efficiency and compatibility with a wide range of media players and devices. See also how to uninstall codecs.

Firstly the codec is no longer developed and the newer codecs have taken over. Finally these are the H.264 and H.265. However, it is still widely used for legacy applications and older media content. See also the Panasonic mpeg 4 as well as the FMP4 codec download.
