Now convert your animations and show them for the world :wink:

Meh…xvid was free all along and windows movie maker does a great job as well. I dont see much use for it to be honest.

Well said, XVID is fantastic and OPENSOURCE. I wonder why they hide the download link behind lots of crappy comments. The codec rox but their website plainly sux imho.

The Dr. DivX converter has worked for me in the past when all other open source and high priced software has failed.

You might as well grab it if they are giving it it away.

I have to say, DivX certainly has more options and encodes better than Xvid. I already bought the Pro version though. Gah! Go figure…

So, anyone know of a good host for video? (…not to hijack here - its kinda related, eh?) Most of the free flash sites convert to pretty crappy quality. So far, ourmedia.org/archive.org is the main option I’ve seen out there. Anybody have other suggestions?

Even if thats not the case, i did feel better believing it if i spent the money. Just my 2 cents.

Take it easy folks, I’m not forcing anyone to download it :stuck_out_tongue:
I mainly use xvid for my converting, but it doesn’t hurt to keep an eye on the alternatives. I actually find divx being easier to set up. Set the target quantizer or bitrate and drag the slider going from speed to quality to whatever you feel like - done. I hope we see something like that in xvid too someday.

Vimeo is better than most imho. Has an option for HD video as well.
