Can an OpenDivx and a DivX 5.2 codec coexist on one computer ?

    I have an AVI movie encoded with OpenDivx 4 which plays very bad with my DivX 5.21 codec because
    it jerks all the time.

    So I decided to re-encode this movie with from OpenDivX to DivX 5.21 with VirtualDub.

    For this task both codecs must be existing on my computer. Does this work?

    How does Vitualdub know that it should use OpenDivx for the source and DivX 5.21 codec for the target?
    Both are linked with the avi/divx format.
    BTW: Audio is MP3

  2. You may have a problem, even Linux transode has no separate open-divx import
    module:
    panteltje:/usr/local/lib/transcode# d *div*
    export_divx4.la export_divx4raw.so export_divx5raw.la export_opendivx.so import_divx.la
    export_divx4.so export_divx5.la export_divx5raw.so filter_divxkey.la import_divx.so
    export_divx4raw.la export_divx5.so export_opendivx.la filter_divxkey.so
    panteltje:/usr/local/lib/transcode# d *ope*
    export_opendivx.la export_opendivx.so

    The other way around seems easy...
    Perhaps have a look at

    Seems all rather old.. 2001.
    Probably not worth writing a Linux import module for.
    http://www.projectmayo.com/projects/detail.php?projectId=4
    shows lib 'decore' DOES exist (it has to), so and it will output yuv I am
    sure.
    You need a programmer :)
