    How can I view XviD file in VLC


    Downloaded two video converters being: freemake and wondershare uniconverter both advertised as 'free' but since uninstalled as even the trial versions did not convert the video in XviD to MP4 (or TV quality).

    So still can't open this file in VLC media player (Vers 3.0.11 Vetinari)

    VLC: Official site - Free multimedia solutions for all OS! - VideoLAN says that VLC does play XviD but doesn't tell me how.

    Any suggestions?

    :)

  2. vista vlc player and xvid

    anyone got vlc player to play an xvid in vista? when i tried it today i get solid colors that fade in and out. very odd because the audio is clear. so obviously some video issue. im using the latest codecs. the xvid plays fine in media player but i prefer vlc because it is a lot lighter and stream 1080p movies smoothly.

    I had the same problem, here's how I fixed it:

    1. In VLC, go to Settings->Preferences
    2. Click the + sign next to Video
    3. Click on Output Modules.
    4. If you get a blank page, tick the "Advanced options" check box (bottom right).
    5. Change the Video Output Module from "Default" to "Windows GDI video output"
    6. Click Save.

    XviD playback is now working a treat in vista with VLC.

    How can I view XviD file in VLC

    vista vlc player and xvid

    That's why I suggest the CCCP. It doesn't have the configuration issues of K-Lite. They took the time to set it up properly. I have never run into conflict issues with it. (Unless I changed settings myself) The fact that Mplayer and Zoom are DirectShow really has little to do with anything, all that matters is that it works.

    As far as VLC being better than Zoom, that's your opinion, but I disagree. First, VLC doesn't display .ass and .ssa format subtitles properly. It displays them as generic DVD style text, Whereas those formats actually hold font and placement info (such as placing translations directly on a sign, for instance). Second, Zoom is much more powerful once you learn how to use it. I'm not saying VLC is a bad player, I use it on Linux and Mac, it definitely has it's place, but it's not the end all-be all of video players.
