Convert XVID to OGV online, for free.
Xvid is a free, open-source, video codec library. It published under the GNU GPL license, which is simply a free license for software, and it implements the ISO MPEG-4 standard. It uses “lossy” compression but retains a high degree of quality. One of the good things about open-source software is that it is possible to view the code to check for malware. In today’s computing environment, this is a very useful security feature, especially when using free software (freeware), such as Xvid.
As open-source software, Xvid opens on almost all of the most common platforms. DivX developed Xvid for PC, but it also opens without consequence on Mac OS X, Linux, and Windows. The latest version runs on Windows XP SP3 or later.
Examples of platforms that can play Xvid files include VLC media player and MPlayer. Currently, Xvid does not support subtitles or interactive menus, but it is compatible with free third-party tools that provide those things. One example is AutoGK.

Ogg Vorbis (OGV) is a free, open-source, unpatented multimedia container format and codec. It is part of the Ogg family of formats and codecs, which the non-profit Xiph.Org Foundation developed to compete with patented codecs. OGV can time-division multiplex (TDM) audio, video, text (subtitles), and metadata. It supports streaming, as well as lossy and lossless compression. However, it does not support menus.
It is possible for OGV to play in Windows Media Player and DirectShow-based players, but only with the use of a DirectShow filter. On the other hand, if the player is not based on DirectShow, then the filter is not necessary.
