Projects / Avifile


Avifile is a library that allows you to read and write compressed AVI files in most common video & audio formats (Indeo® Video, DivX, etc.) under x86 Linux. Compression and decompression are performed with Win32 DLLs. It includes a simple AVI player and a Video4Linux capture program. Currently it is under heavy development, and while some features (such as AVI playback) already work, some (audio compression) are not yet successfully implemented.

            Very strong!
            I used Xine-0.9.8 and Mplayer-0.9pre1 and never avifile.They are excellent players and I could play all of my videos with them. But when I tried to playback a quite huge divx 768x576 with 1392.71 kb/s, xine and MPlayer sucks in my Duron 800. I tried with WMP7.1 in Windows and of course the result was worst. So I tried avifile 0.7 and now I work only with it. It played my video very easy in fullscreen. Now I installed 0.7.3 . Even better.
