Now that the SSE (2009-04-09) version supports SSE 4.1, my encoding speeds have drastically improved! An encode that took 1 hr. 5 min. now takes 45 min.! (And that's at 3.5 GHz; at 3.83 GHz the same encode took 54 min. with the previous version!)

Good software, but needs an automated install, something like a /s or /q so it can be run and installed silently on large numbers of computers by a software distribution system.

ES GENIAL!!!!
El codec fddshow es sin lugar a dudas el mejor codec del mundo, ESO SI; DEBES SABER CONFIGURARLO PARA APROVECHAR TODO SU PODER, el codec fddshow es controvertido porque algunos dicn que no sirve y otros, como yo, dicen que esto es una obra de arte del software....
Sin lugar a dudas si tu decides probar con este codec pero sabes muy poco de informatica pues mas que seguro que TENDRAS PROBLEMAS, pero si tu dominas la multimedia, sabes sobre formatos de video y sabes sobre codec pues EL FDDSHOW NO TIENE COMPETENCIA EN EL MUNDO
El fddshow te permite SIN INSTALAR NI UN CODEC MAS, reproducir en tu pc videos MOV, DIVX, MPG2, Real Media, 3GP, MP4, FLV y un largo etc.. ES INCREIBLE!!!! todos los formatos incluso te permite mejorar su calidad considerablemente
OJALA ALGUN DIA PREMIEN A SU CREADOR y espero que el fddshow continue con su desarollo pues practicamente cada mes sacan una nueva version...

if you guys have problems with playback or the video decoder software gives you an ffdshow.ax error.

install http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=A5C84275-3B97-4AB7-A40D-3802B2AF5FC2&displaylang=en

or find the 64bit version if you're on 64bit.

Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86)

is what i use.

i guess it'd be best to uninstall ffdshow first, install the microsoft package, then install it again, or you could regsvr32 ffdshow.ax in the installation directory

When Playing WMV, WMA files under Vista 32bit there are constant slow downs in the playback performace. Please Fix this in the next version. I use an Athlon 64x2 6400+ Dual core processor.

Hi Daniel:* FFDShow normally gives you an option for running with software. If its slowing down your other stuff, you might configure it so its not listed in the DirectShow control.

For improving audio, say with WinAMP, you can use the Free version of DFX which doesnt slow anything down.Hope This Helps !

Run xvid and divx with ease
low processor consumption than divx

if you want to run mp4 or mkv install haali media splitter otherwise it can't run else you use media player classic cause already have gabest splitter built in

I think that this is the best @#$%ing codecs to watch or listen anything. Anyway i found that there is something that you guys should check with the subtittles, Please try to fix the subtittles size like vobsub does, i'm actually using vobsub now because the subtittles looks so great!, try to put the same settings as vobsub does and FFDShow will be perfect.

I like ffdshow a lot and it's very useful, but I'm having a little problem.

I had installed ffdshow and could watch any video I wanted but after I uninstalled and reinstalled it I am no longer able to watch mp4.

The player says that the file can't be opened whereas before that I could watch it normally.

What can I do about it.

I tried many versions of the ffdshow but nothing can seem to remedy it.

ok playback issues fixed since last few revisions, had made playback under vista media centre very skippy, it was a combination of nvidia and FFDshow, they werent working together, so u have to d/l the 174.74 beta drivers for vista, for it to work well, also d/l the metroska splitter to work with it and playback is 100% beautifull, after installing these 3 things you will never ever need any codec at all EVER IT PLAYS EVERYTHING with the
174.74 nvidia beta

No subtitles in VirtualDub! Loading them, then configuring how they should look, and switching back to first dialogue (where u have already loaded them, makes them dissapear, and of course, they dont work!). Previous version (not so sure wich, could be some month ago) worked just fine.

Win XP Pro SP2. Winamp 5.5, Power DVD, WMP 11.

Go back and look at Rev 1508 from 10/05/07, which was more stable than this version. After installing either Rev 1512 or this Rev, video from some AVI's, DVX and mpg2 became unplayable. Others had colors messed up. Uninstalled either 1512 or this newer version, installed 1508 returned full functionality and appropriate color.

I've been using this for donkeys years now, it's never caused any problems. I do a crap load of video encoding and again, never had any problems using FFDshow.
I've installed this on any Pc i've fixed (lots of 'em) and it doesn't cause and issues, AS LONG AS YOU REMOVE RUBBISH CODEC PACKS FIRST!!! If you don't, then you get conflicts and problems.

Directshow filters simply read the file and display what's in it, FFDshow is NOT a codec in the normal sense of Divx/Xvix codecs.

Be sure you download the version that's right for your CPU. I find the MMX version hardly ever works, probably cus MMX is old and most .. SSE is usually the way to go, unless your running an ancient system. You will find it won't even install if its the wrong version. Simply try another.

One computer of 3 accepted it Ok from the start. The rest 2 refused. It turned out to be the difference in Media Player Classic: 6.4.8.6 couldn't load FFv (ActiveX, icon in systray). 6.4.9.0 loaded it Ok.

Still the first computer runs now MP4 in many players (PowerDVD, WMP, InterVideo WinDVD), but some doesn't use FFv (Nero ShowTime, RealPlayer, QT) � perhaps, not allowed in the corresponding list (Options).

The rest 2 � only in MPClassic (don't know why).

I've been using FFDShow for years, but like others here, PowerDVD 7 freaks out playing avi files with it installed. Guess I use MPC to play them instead (though Nero ShowTime plays them okay).

The video decoder has problems decoding many XviD and the most of DivX5 avi files. I think the problem occurs with movies that have 23.976 fps instead of 25.000 fps. The player opens but there is a blanc screen. The slider does not move but if you double click the FFv icon on the tray and go to the Info & CPU tab you can see that the current frame runs with less than 10 fps. This problem also existed with older versions so I thought that it would have been fixed now but it is still there. Does anyone know how can I contact the author?

The audio decoder works well with any format I have tried until now. No problems at all!

When you have that, you don't need anything else.
It can enter in conflicts with any others Codecs you may have such codec packs, Nero etc...
However, you can configure every Codecs in the Interface of FFDShow, if a codec disturb you, you can simply by a few clicks disable it.

For Audio supporting its very nice, it can exploit your Sound Card, such mine is Creative X-Fi, can read at 32 Bits Audio and use your SPDIF.

For Video it recognize all, excepted for DVD.
DVD can be viewed but you can't exploit full features of DVD excepted the Audio, you can use all you need : SPDIF your internal decoding.
For X-Fi users, you can use SPDIF, your sound card will do the rest ;)

Using this on Vista in WMP11, it's amazing video quality of all file types it supports, I honestly haven't seen anything better.

For XP, it looks like total garbage, sorry. color isn't accurate at all, and plus, the quality isn't as sharp and rendering is more blocky than Vista.

With the right OS, its heavenly.

--tested with xvid Real Time with Bill Maher episodes, a 689mb mp4 copy of Pacquiao Vs Solis, and a 700mb 5.1 surround divx movie. All using a 43" Pioneer Plasma.
