compression codec with Microsoft™ Windows Vista

recording high-resolution videos, a high-quality video codec should be
used. Otherwise, a few seconds of video recording can use up far more
than 100 MB of memory on the hard drive. For resolutions of 2048 x 1536
pixels it is essential to consider which is the right video codec to
use. We already presented this video codec in our report “Archiving Video Sequences with the
DivX®5 Video Compression Codec” in 2002. Since then, a lot has
changed in this area. By using faster dual-core and quad-core
processors and high-resolution HD cameras, it is possible to compress
the video to the hard drive in real time, and to display it on the
screen in full resolution.
In the following instructions, the videos were taken using a
high-resolution USB C-mount camera. This camera has a maximum
resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels at 7 images per second.
The new 3D Desktop from the Microsoft
Windows Vista operating system and the “Aereo Glass” interface were
used. Windows Vista offers two new functions for arranging windows:
“Flip” (ALT + TAB) and “Flip 3D” (Windows button START + TAB). These
functions place great demand on the computer and graphic card. In order
to view the special visual effects, it is essential to have a graphic
card that supports DirectX 9.0 or DirectX 10. A dual-core processor
with at least 1 GB RAM is required to work without interruptions.

Installing the DivX Community Codec with Microsoft Windows Vista:
The DivX codec is offered in a package on the DivX website at
www.divx.com. There are two versions of the codec: a limited, free
“DivX Community Codec” and a “DivX Pro Codec”, which is a component of
the DivX Pro package and costs US$ 19.99 for Windows (as at January
To compress videos, only the DivX codec needs to be installed. All
other components enhance the software package but are not absolutely
necessary. Instead of the DivX Player you can now also use the Windows
Media Player 11.
All required components are
automatically copied to the correct location.
The installation only takes a few
minutes, and the system is then ready for use.
When using the DivX Player to play a
DivX video, the 3D Desktop is temporarily deactivated. The DivX Player
is not 100% compatible with Windows Vista. However, the video can be
viewed efficiently without the 3D Desktop.

The system-specific Windows Media
Player 11 is 100% compatible with Vista and can also play the video in
the 3D Desktop.
