“Hello, everybody! My friend sent me a video file with the file extension of Xvid, but the video is in AVI format. The amazing thing is that this file can be played on the computer. I am curious what the reason is that I never see Xvid video file before. Is there anyone come to solve the mystery? Besides, can I burn this video file to a DVD or other disc as usual? Thanks! ”
Xvid is the file extension for XviD. The file extension of XviD can be AVI, MKV, MP4, etc. What should be noted is that the encoding format of this video cannot be seen only from the extension. For example, a movie file is in .avi format, but the actual video encoding format of it can be DV Code, XviD or another one; and the audio encoding format can be PCM, AC3 or MP3. So, you can be assured that there is no difference to convert Xvid to DVD disc.

Xvid, a video codec library following the MPEG-4 video coding standard, is a primary competitor of the DivX Pro Codec. In contrast with the DivX codec, which is proprietary software developed by DivX, Inc., Xvid is free software distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License. This also means that unlike the DivX codec, which is only available for a limited number of platforms, Xvid can be used on all platforms and operating systems for which the source code can be compiled.
