Good Video Codecs

Top Video Codecs

Good resources for video codecs for download, I figured I would compile a list of good video codecs that you can use to edit videos; these can be used in most popular editing programs like Adobe Premiere Pro, Avid, Sony Vegas, and Final Cut Pro.

– Great codec and the software is good too.


xVid for Windows x86
xVid for Linux x86 Debian (Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora)


DivX for Windows
DivX for Mac
– Good compression tool for exporting to web formats, though I can’t stand its intrusiveness (the DivX player, etc.)

Good MPEG codec

FFmpeg is a complete, cross-platform solution to record, convert and stream audio and video. It includes libavcodec – the leading audio/video codec library.
