DirectShow FilterPack


DirectShow FilterPack is a lite-weight package of DirectShow media filters which, together with FFDShow, will enable you to play many different kinds of encoded/encrypted audio and video with your favorite DirectShow media player.

DirectShow FilterPack consists of 10 Source- and Splitter filters (stage 1 and 2). That’s because another piece of software called FFDShow is already capable of decoding a lot of encoded/encrypted audio and video, but FFDShow can do much more than that!

DirectShow FilterPack greatly relies on FFDShow and FFDShow is almost completely useless without Splitter filters, but DirectShow FilterPack and FFDShow together can play/render almost anything! Many Splitter filters and a couple of Source filters are also embedded in Media Player Classic (a DirectShow media player). But Media Player Classic can’t play/render lossless audio for instance, so in this case DirectShow FilterPack is still usefull.

DivX AntiFreeze 0.4


Sometimes video clips contain invalid frames that cause Media Player to freeze the image. Theoretically player should recover from the problem, but it doesn’t. So image is freezed permanently until clip position is manually changed (by moving position slider). DivX AntiFreeze avoids such freezings

DivX AntiFreeze can be configurably used for DivX and MS MPEG4 (v1, v2, v3) clips.

NB! DivX AntiFreeze just avoids permanent freezings during playback, it does not fix the clip.

Known problems :

– In case of serious errors, video and audio of may get out of sync. Move position slider to resync it.

Changes in DivX AntiFreeze 0.4 :

– Added support for MS MPEG4 (v1, v2, v3) formats.
– Few minor changes.

XviD Codec

XviD 1.2.2
Website: XviD
Status: Freeware
Interface: English
File Size: 871 KB
Operating System: Windows 98/ME/2000/XP/2003/Vista

XviD is a codec meant for the work with video. It is a video codec library that follows the MPEG-4 standard. This MPEG-4 codec is distinguished by the fast speed as well as by good quality of the video image. Xvid codec has been developed on the base of Open-source code. Files, compressed by Xvid codec can be recorded both on CD and DVD and played on a DivX compatible DVD player.

As opposed to DivX codec, which represents proprietary software, developed by DivX, Inc., Xvid is free ware distributed under GNU License (General Public License). This means that as opposed to DivX codec that was released only for Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X platforms, Xvid can be used on all operating systems and platforms, for which the source code codec can be compiled. However the methods of compression, used in MPEG-4, can be patent. Consequently, the use of Xvid in some countries can be illegal.

It is considered that Xvid decoder realizes the most qualitative post-processing of the image. The level of the post-processing is adjusted by hand. There is the ability to add the noise (film effect). The last version of Xvid codec is 1.1.2. At the present moment there 1.2 version of the codec has been developed with the support of several processors.

The most important thing in Xvid codec is the post processing. This decoder can not automatically lower the quality of post processing in case of full booting of the processor. Therefore if you come across with some difficulties with the video playback you should lower the level of the post processing (the power of your processor is not enough for the decoding of a video recording with the selected quality). For this in the section Postprocessing you should switch off the use of one or several algorithms of image processing. In the section FourCC you may switch on the support of video decoding compressed by DivX 4, DivX 5/6 or standard MPEG 4 video.
