FFDSHOW 2006-08-03 was released yesterday and has been added to the AfterDawn download section and The incredibly popular software has been downloaded over 3.5 million times from AfterDawn. If unfamiliar, FFDSHOW is a DirectShow decoding filter for decompressing several video formats, including DivX, XviD, WMV, MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 movies.
It also supports decoding of virtually all audio formats used in movies, including AC3, DTS, MP3 and Ogg Vorbis, and several subtitle formats. To summarize its main idea, the FFDSHOW consumes way less CPU power than original DivX or XviD codecs, even with maximum post-processing.
