xvidEncoder may work with MPEG Streamclip's AVI export feature with some limitation.

- Perian required. QuickTime native AVi importer is completely broken.
- No DivX decoder.component. It overrides Perian's AVI import feature.
- No B frame (or uncheck frame reordering). AVI container's B frame hack is crappy.

This is because AVI requires media compressor component like xvidEncoder, to emit stream in "Packed bitstream" format. It is ugly hack, so it easily loses compatibility with most container other than AVI.

That is the reason why I say xvidEncoder is incompatible with AVI.

I hope everyone uses MP4 container instead of AVI.

This encoder would be terrifically useful if there were actually a tool that could get the results into the .avi and .divx container formats.

Why AVI?

So that the less fortunate owners of older Windose machines can have something for their WMP.

My Samsung DLNA TV can play video files from USB sticks but AVIs are the preferred format as they're most compatible. Prolly due to a crappy DLNA spec but all i know if AVIs give the best results for my TV.

You would use this over Perian because Perian helps you to read (or decode) a video while this one is to write (or encode).

This is an encoder, Perian is a decoder.

Is this better than all the other MPEG-4 codecs? Is it faster, or what else?
