Is Apple rolling out the welcome mat for XviD? Probably not. XviD has made it to the QuickTime Components listing over at QuickTime’s resources page. Xvid of course is one of the more popular video compression formats out there, with most torrents coming in this variety.
We believe that the adding of Xvid was simply based on the codecs popularity, and the immediate AppleTV hack to support the format. With this codec you can now properly export your XviD movies to a more Apple friendly M4V format.
Whoever updated the site, forgot to change the logo to point to XviD’s site rather than DIVX!
