   <title>Introduction to XviD</title>
-OpenDivX or Xvid?
-OpenDivX is a free implementation of the mpeg4-codec. Alas, the
-developers at ProjectMayo didn't gratefully release their actual source
-in compileable versions, so the displeasure of the users majority
-canalized into a new project named Xvid.
-Xvid development was interrupted in Autumn 2002 due to a code-theft
-the developers at Sigma design committed but it is continued now.
-For worse luck, OpenDivX and Xvid are using the same header file
-names (an issue that wouldn't be resolved easily) and function
-namespace, so you'll have to choose which one to use.
-I personally vote for Xvid, because the installation from sources
-is much smoother. If you use mencoder and transcode at the same time,
-you may want to choose different codecs for each.
