What is an Xvid file?

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.

 

How to open an Xvid file?

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.

What is a WEBM (WebM) file?

WebM (WEBM) is a freely-licensed file container designed for the Web. Specifically, it was designed to be compatible with HTML5, originally. It supports chapters, captions, subtitles, metadata tags, streaming, attachments, 3D codecs, 3D containers, and hardware players. WEBM compresses video streams with VP8 or VP9 codecs, and audio with Vorbis or Opus codecs.

 

How to open a WEBM file?

VLC media player and MPlayer can open WEBM files on any operating system (OS). Other good choices for opening WEBM include Winamp for Microsoft Windows OS, and Elmedia for Mac OS X.

 

Microsoft browsers do not have built-in WebM codecs. Therefore, install the codecs separately. However, most browsers support WEBM files.
