FFDShow - one of the most essential and popular mediakoderov, which is mainly used to view video encoded using DivX and xVid. In fact, from the very beginning it was created specifically as an alternative to the last two encoders.
Key Features Of FFDShow
The program was originally designed to combine the capabilities of the maximum number of media players for video viewing. The program itself works as a sort of filter as part of DirectShow, a component of DirectX. By automatically embedding many players, you do not need to install a separate mediakoder for each file format. Almost all currently known software players recognize this plugin automatically and allow you to play media content immediately and without pretreatment.
The only thing you need to understand, so it is with the program settings in the main dialog box. Among the features presented here is very powerful features. The program allows you to play titles, adjust image resolution and brightness, create screen shots to use to select preferred codecs to use plug-ins for video processing and filters DScaler, use the built-in audio filters, EQ and a mixer.
Among the supported formats represented a fairly large number, namely, H.264 / AVC, XVid, DivX 4/5/6, MPEG 4, DivX3, MP41, MP42, MP43, H.263, FLV1, Theora, VP3, VP5, VP6 , VP6F, MPEG1, MPEG2, WMV1, WMV2, WMV3, VC-1, WMVP, MSS1 / 2, H.261, Hiffyuv, MJPEG, SVQ1, SVQ3, QTRLE, 8BPS, QRPZA, FFV1, DV, CamStudio, CorePNG, LOCO , MSZH, Techsmith, ZLib, ZMBV, AutoDesk RLE, Cinepack, Indeo, MS Video 1, MS Video RLE, QPEG, Real Video. In addition, the program allows transcoding FFDShow audio stream in the formats MP3, AAC, Dolby AC3, WMA, Vorbis, and so on. D.
It should be noted that the decoder has the support of the majority of instructions of modern processors, including the SSE / SSE2 / SSE3, MMX / MMXEXT, 3DNow! / 3DNow! Ext, because works on the basis of the library libavcodec, the original open architecture that has been optimized by hand and contain assembler code.
In general, this filter can be used in programs such as VirtualDub and AviSynth, designed to transcode video to different formats with each other, the more that this software package is pretty serious competition to many well-known and common encoders as much expands when viewing video in the operating systems Windows, using completely different software media players. And of course, this package is a fairly high speed, which is very beneficial to the use of system resources. And the possibility of re-encoding video formats between them are quite large. The only thing that may cause some inconvenience to far from the video encoding to its users, the correct assignment of all the necessary settings. However, if you will understand this, the encoder will actually be able to show all its power and functionality.
