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 WMV (Windows Media Video) file?

Windows Media Video (WMV) is a common and widely supported video format. It compresses the file size with a codec resulting in an easy-to-manage file that maintains the quality of the video. A digital container format, called Advanced Systems Format (ASF), often encapsulates WMV files.

 

How to open a WMV file?

Most media players can open and read WMV (and ASF) files. The best player for opening a WMV file is Microsoft Windows Media Player. Microsoft developed WMV and ASF, and many videos online today are WMV files. VLC media player is another reliable option, which can play multimedia files across several platforms.

 

WMV is also easy to convert to other video file types. However, keep in mind that the conversion process might cause picture quality to decrease. If a conversion is needed, then HandBrake is a free and open-source tool for converting WMV files.
