Well Xvid is the one that we are using for our compressed versions of our movies. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

You must set your video stream to Full Processing Mode in Virtual Dub, then select the compressor from the list. Choose XVid and set it to circa 1200kbs constant bitrate. and then encode. If you are skilled enough, you can do 2-pass encoding, in 1st phase the compressor checks the video stream frame per frame for compressibility values and in the 2nd phase it encodes the video stream according to the values found in 1st phase log file. So you can put for the 1st phase circa 6000kbs variable bit rate and for the 2nd phase you can put 1500 variable bit rate or you can actually enter a value for filesize...

You may also check www.doom9.org (http://www.doom9.org) for very easy tutorials about movie editing and encoding...

Where can I find precompiled binaries of the latest stable version of xvid?

Is it better than DIVX?

These are 3 most used builds of xVid binaries:

Nic's Builds: http://nic.dnsalias.com/

Koepi's Builds: http://www.roeder.goe.net/~koepi/xvid.shtml

uManiac's Builds: http://xvid.hopto.org/


DivX vs xViD - you can't say which one is better. One has some advantages and the other too. It's more like a user preference. To me xVid has more crisp output and DivX more soft. But because DivX is payware, lot of people use xVid.
