== Add xvid it's opensource ==
Please add xvid to
choosable video format in ogv and others.
It's an open source, mature codec and doesn't have encoder problems theora currently has.
Embedding it makes possible to show off ogv files with a codec that shows the tru power of ogv.
Please make it possible to put this in, so .ogv can be used
immediatelly with xvid and vorbis/speex/flac to create a mature and temporary solution until theora 1.0 hits the digital streets.
Then users can just batch convert it with their applications whenever they feel/want to do it.
(When they think theora is ready.)
Could someone please look into this and tell me if this is possible and/or will be integrated?

XPete, you should read about the issues a bit before filling up the whole wiki with so many questions. Most of your questions, concerns and statements have already been thought about. In this case here, Xvid cannot be considered because it is a patented format. That means it's not a free format like Theora and Xiph cannot use it. Theora is currently now undergoing the last stages of beta to version 1.0 and quality is already at pair with Xvid. Also, users can't simply transcode from one video format to another; you lose quality everytime you do it, because most video formats are lossy.--[[User:Saoshyant|Ivo]] 12:37, 2 February 2008 (PST)

:There is also HuffYUV besides Lagarith. Also the new Dirac codec supports
lostless compression, reportedly better than anything else. Agree, a lostless codec should be added. Just carefully select one of them ;-) [[User:DOS386|DOS386]] 01:31, 4 May 2008 (PDT)
:: Lossless compression would still be a good thing to have for Theora.
:: Even if there are other formats available that can do lossless.
:: Not convinced about using another codec, a lossless mode for Theora is useful.
