Xvid is an open source MPEG-4 video codec designed for everyone. Its purpose is to compress video in order to allow for faster transmission over computer networks or for more efficient storage on computer disks.

Xvid removes information from video that is not important for human perception in order to achieve very high compression rates while still keeping very good visual quality.
