    Default VP7 codec for linux?

    I have a few avi files which are encoded in vp7 codec. I'm not able to play them on vlc or mplayer.
    From where can I get this codec for linux?

    AFAIK exist no vp7 codec so far for linux...some license issue or dont know for some reason vlc ignore to include support for vp7 in its player...
    linux=no vp7

    then has someone tried it with wine ?

    VP7 betters H.264, but due to the existance of x264, an encoder thats cross platform and developed by the VideoLAN team, VP7 decoding doesn't get a high enough priority from them.

    But a decoder is underway in FFMPEG(and concequently VLC) and will be released as soon as possible. But an encoder is a long way off.

    PS: a non native Win32 dll which can be loaded to MPlayer and Xine is available, but its not fast.

    all win32 dll files that mplayer and xine use have this performance drop due to the fact that the dll is made for an entirely different platform.

    the dll is located in the mplayer win32 dll package. you must be knowing where it is.

    ^Coz , its a non native os file being used.
    Mplayer has to use it via a wrapper of sorts to decode the video.
    Although , i personally havent seen any performance drop decoding quicktime videos in mplayer.
    AFAIK, it uses win32codecs to decode them.

    ..alright..but i dont think theres any need for mplayer unless we need to play rare formats like vp7..otherwise vlc is there serving all time....

    ^Mplayer doesnt just use windows codecs for all the videos.
    It does use native codecs for supported formats.
    IMO its the best video player around.

    Offtopic:VLC also has a mozilla plugin like mplayer,
    I've only used mplayer's one, can someone tell me how the VLC one fares?
