Filter also supports nowadays decoding of virtually all audio formats used in movies, including AC3, DTS, MP3 and Ogg Vorbis, and several subtitle formats.
The codec also features postprocessing capabilities, support for virtually all MPEG-4 video formats, support for various processor enhancements (such as SSE and MMX), etc. FFDSHOW is released as an open source software under GPL license agreement.
To summarize its main idea, the FFDSHOW consumes way less CPU power than original DivX or XviD codecs, even with maximum post-processing. At the same time the post-processing seems to give excellent quality results and allows more configuring than the original DivX codec. It can even automaticly reduce post-processing if your CPU is getting overloaded. The noise filter adds a kind of a rasterising effect to the picture - might be useful in some cases.
FFDSHOW requires Microsoft Visual C++ to work.
Please note! Certain Antivirus applications may claim that FFDSHOW contains a trojan. However our own tests indicate that this is a False Positive
We also recommend that you read through our guide on how to install and configure FFDSHOW.
ffdshow avc mpeg-4 mp4 divx decoder codec
1License and operating system information is based on latest version of the software.
If you need a player get the new Daum PotPlayer. Its free, codecs are built in, and theres a portable version.
FFDSHOW is in my program files folder but its due to meGUI (which can update all your codecs, including FFDSHOW, automatically).
Really, its time to drop the avi and move foreward with the mkv!

...It works perfectly. Now I can normalize it properly in FFDshow, and use Matroska Media Splitter to play the .mkv files with Jpn audio first. Great down-mixing capabilities and fast, reliable seeking in the movies.
It's more difficult to know if the new version is worth being installed if we don't know where the changes are IMHO
got real fed up !
Uninstall all the codecs - install FFDSHOW - plays everything - and with much better sound quality -stereo sounds like stereo now !
It's true. I don't use anything else anymore... :D
And yes, an updated Changelog would be nice with each new release.
The picture quality on the older build is much better than newer FFDSHOWs"
I don't think so.
In my eyes there are no visual differences.
Newer versions (I'm using 20050803) have the advantage of stable overlay colors, when you run ffdshow settings (and you don't have to re-adjust your settings anymore for example with zoomplayer overlay reset etc.).
In earlier (official) versions (2004) you have to use the overlay setting inside ffdshow to adjust the picture.
The picture quality on the older build is much better than newer FFDSHOWs. Maybe it's better default settings, but I'm sticking with the 2004 codecs for now.
- The "gradual denoise" in "Blur&NR" is broken
- ffdshow doesn't appear in the list of Directshow
filters in iuVCR, thus it can't be used at all
So, I went back to the old version (12-Oct-2004)
The only thing that freaks me out is seeing on its download page at sourceforge the last version being from 2002 or 2004.
plus there are lots more controls.
And do you know what did help? Version ffdshow 12/2003!!!!????????
Any1 plz confirm it
FFDSHOW is the best of the best.
Hope it never leaves us.
FFDSHOW with Windows XP SP2 and it causes Nero Express
to crash almost immediately, even before I can
finish selecting the files I want to burn.
The message I get:
"nero.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close.
We are sorry for the inconvenience.

The version history says "a hack to not crash nero express" was added. Sadly the hack doesn't work for
Unfortunately the FFDSHOW 2005-06-11 download doesnt seem to install... hmm...
