To decompress the videos it uses libavcodec, from the FFmpeg project, as well as MPlayer, during the post processing, to increase the visual quality of the videos that have a low bitrate.
The advantages of FFDShow compared to other codec packs based on Directshow are many. We won't have to install anything else to be able to work with the majority of video formats, it has a long list of configuration options that will allow us to control even the slightest detail, and the quality that it can accomplish is brilliant.
As well as improving the quality of our videos, FFDShow uses fewer resources than the original DivX codecs, even when it reprocesses a video.
This version of the codec pack comes without a media player, so that you will need to have one to view the videos.
Without a doubt, it's one of the best video codec packs that exist, even though to control it a moderately advanced video knowledge is required.
The perfect solution to be able to view all the video formats on our PC.
