||Xvid is a MPEG-4 video codec. Its purpose is to compress video in order
to allow for faster transmission over computer networks or for more
efficient storage on computer disks. Hence, Xvid can somewhat be seen as
a ZIP for video. Xvid removes information from video that is not important
for human perception in order to achieve very high compression rates while
still keeping very good visual quality. As an example: uncompressed digital
video is huge and takes up about 100 GB HD space per hour at PAL
resolution. The same video would require just 500 MB per hour when
compressed with Xvid at high quality. So Xvid can compress video at ratios
of 200:1 and more.
