just as i was getting a tad exasperated that i couldn't find any new builds of ffVfW, i found that it had been merged with it's brother, ffdshow. (now that i recall, milan said something like that he intended to do this on his site a long time ago).

http://athos.leffe.dnsalias.com/

last build is yesterday.

just trying out the mpeg-2 encoding now smile.gif

there appear to be some new options (quantizer noise shaping? intriguing)

please disregard if this is already known, as apparently the last build was integrated with ffvfw too (with the slight bug that if you had a space in the installed folder it wouldn't show up in vfw interface...? this is now fixed, so you can install in "program files")

later

No, I didn't know this.

I too was wondering why the latest FFvfw was so old. Well, now I know! smile.gif

Old thread bumped, but anyway...
There is an official new compile available now at http://sourceforge.net/projects/ffdshow.

Go figure, that explains why I've been seeing new builds at FileForum that aren't showing up on the dnsalias site.

Duh me.

its a multi-format vfw based codec (its like ffdshow only you can encode with it too):

it includes several MPEG4 codecs, MPEG1 and 2, MJPEG, DV, etc.

if you have the latest ffdshow installed you probably have ffvfw too. you can acces it in virtualdub or just via ffdshow in the start-menu (vfw configuration)

edit: spelling (does anyone know a good spelling checker for mozilla firefox wink.gif )

SURELY there's a decoder-only version of recent FFDShows availible, seeing as how the Matroska pack has something of the sort? i can't fit FFDShow on CDRs with my DVDRips anymore sad.gif

The decoder only version of ffdshow was compiled by Toff for the matroska pack, supported by Milan, but dont expect him to release this on the official sf.net project page.

If you want to have a build from this, goto #matroska on irc.corecodec.com and ask Toff about it .... but i doubt it will be significantly smaller wink.gif ....

While the ffmpeg mpeg4 codec unquestionably has the fastest decoding speed on probably all platforms and has great workarounds for encoder bugs. I typically have been using the XviD decoder. Some big improvements have been made in cvs HEAD with the decoding speed. While it is certainly out of league with ffmpeg it is much faster than 1.01. Today I tried to build myself a statically linked decoder for myself, for certain reasons this is what you would want. Tomorrow if I make it work I send you a link. I could try to reduce the size of the filter. I am betting I could make it really small wink.gif. No promises though.

Did you try this out? I am curious if you have. I myself have not been able to since my ffdshow encoder keeps on crashing. Does it increase PSNR? I suspect it won't, but might still increase visual quality while becoming less similar to the source. I suspect this is some sort of HVS trellis technique, yes, with a adaptive lamda? Dunno, I have heard talk about this sort of thing on #xvid. It is intended to reduce ringing primarily. Sort of sounds like the same thing, but I may be wrong.

Make sure it doesnt contain code from Koepi. I am sure he would try to force the XviD Team to put a special license on it, excluding the use from the matroska team biggrin.gif biggrin.gif .... laugh.gif .....
