What is codec?
It stands for encoder and decoder.

Why is there the DivX logo on my computer when play back the avi file?

Does the output file support other codec format except DivX?
The program can support most encoding filters based on Microsoft DirectShow, such as XviD or WMV9 and more if you install appropriate video codecs.
Why is there no sound in my MPEG4 / DivX Player (hardware)?
The default audio compressor the program used is Microsoft ADPCM. It can be played on Windows. But hardware may not recognize the compressed audio format. So please select MPEG layer-3 in audio compressor field ofthe output option dialog. Most hardware can play the MP3 format. But the audio compressor may not work well for some audio sources.
When I preview the video, I find it a little jumpy. Why?

Why does the program report it does not play the clip?

How can I reduce the VCD (MPEG / MPG / DAT) file size to fit the internet transmission?
With the DivX codec, you can reduce the VCD file size dramatically, Please click the Settings button in the Output options dialog. Please set Encoding bitrate to about 322 kbps. You do not feel the quality loss almost for VCD file (352*240 or 352*288) .
The Encoding bitrate is bigger, the picture is clearer, but the output file is bigger, and vice versa.
A 60-minute VCD file has about 650MB, Encoding with the DivX (322 kbps encoding bitrate) and Microsoft ADPCM, the output avi file is about 250MB. If the computer has installed Fraunhofer professional MP3 encoder, encoding with the audio encoder(192kbps encoding bitrate) and DivX (322 kbps encoding bitrate), the output avi file is about 200MB.
How many formats does the program support?
If the computer has installed the appropriate audio and video decoder based on DirectShow, the program can support it.
But converting VOB files always fails, if they are encrypted.
If you install RM or QT decoder based on DirectShow, the program also supports them. But these decoders are not released by official website, they may have bugs and not stable. The program does not run well.
After I uninstall DivX5.1.1, install DivX5.2.1, the version number of DivX in Video compressor does not change. Why?
After you uninstall the previous DivX, please restart computer, then install the new version of DivX.
