MPEG-4 video compressor.

I advise anyone to be cautious with this codec, although this codec has a long development cycle and some good features, I think it makes more problems than it solves. Let's take for example this QuickTime encoded MPEG-4 video: http://de.m-audio.com/images/global/videos/88sxMG.mov if I have 3ivx installed on my MDD Dual G4 it crashes the host application (QuickTime Player, Safari, etc.) when opening the movie! When I remove the 3ivx codec, it plays nicely.

This entire thing appears to be a trial - isn't the decompressor supposed to be free?

To the two who complained about "No Application in the package"; it is a Quicktime CODEC! You simply open the movie in QuickTime Player and the CODEC decodes it. P.S. When installed, the 3ivx CODEC is also available to any QuickTime aware application. Geesh...

This seems to have a conflict with the Flip4Mac plug-in that prevents MS Office apps from launching. The problem is likely with one of the other products (my money is on Office, since none of the other apps that use Quicktime have choked by having both plugins installed). Just thought I would let people know that if you install this along with Flip4Mac, you may have problems.

I have Flip4Mac and Microsoft Office 2004. Everything is up to date and I have no conflict on my system. 3ivx, Flip4Mac and all Office applications work fine for me.

Downloaded the package. Installed it, no app!!! Various URLs, a pdf manual, an Uninstall feature, that's all. Disconcerting, to say the least...

Every new version since 4.0.4 has a bug where certain videos can't keep up with the decoding and you get tons of artifacts. So I'm sticking with 4.0.4 for now.

apparently Privoxy proxy was interfering with DMG downloads - works fine with it off. strange! excellent codec - much nicer at allowing random access within video file than Divx.

So is it technically impossibly to get XviD/DivX videos to play within the QuickTime player? Likewise for OGM and MKV containers?

It's easy enough to play DivX files in the QT Player; I do it all the time with fansubs, and all I needed was the Mac version of the DivX Codec. .avi files run fine, except for ones from certain sources (i.e., some studios' or compressors' products just give me a white screen and a few seconds of timeline, even though a file may be 200MB). The point is that you shouldn't have to convert the .avi files to anything else in order to view them, unless the source was of lesser quality or you want to make a disc in iDVD.
