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.

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.

The .AVI export feature of MPEG Streamclip 1.9.2 now does work with XviD Encoder (1.2.19)

(QuickTime component under Mac OS X 10.6.6)

Not according to the developer. Go to http://www003.upp.so-net.ne.jp/mycometg3/

Under Known Issues for the latest release of xvidEncoder 1.2.21 (Last Update: 2011/02/26):

* Incompatible with MPEG Streamclip's AVI export feature, including "Save as AVI.component".

Just checked again and made another test conversion. XviD Encoder 1.2.21 does work in MPEG Streamclip 1.9.3b4 (using File>Export to AVI).

Though, when I open the resulting file in QT player/Perian, the Inspector window says 'DivX 5 (Perian).' VideoSpec says 'MPEG-4 DivX v.5', and VLC doesn't give any details. (The commercial DivX codec is not installed.)

The MPEG Streamclip 1.9.2 User's Guide also claims «Added compatibility with xvidEncoder, and fixed a preview issue with x264Encoder and mp4vEncoder.»

That short note on the developer's site might simply be outdated.

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?
