Prepare for 3ivx

Written by Jari Ketola @ 01 Dec 2000 14:43

The launch of 3ivx, the next generation MPEG4 codec, is only two weeks away. The launch date is currently set on December 15th, 2000.
3ivx takes the MPEG4 coding, made familiar to general public mostly by Microsoft's ASF-format, and the hacked variation of it - DivX ;-). 3ivx's goal is to be smaller, and higher in quality than the current MPEG4 codecs. The codec is also aimed to be fully streamable, and it will be developed as open source, and thus have support on all platforms (Windows, MacOS, BeOS, Linux, Amiga etc.).
