The Motion-JPEG Codec Package allows high-quality, real-time MJPEG encoding and decoding. It also enables you to view Motion-JPEG files created on another computer, even if you do not have specialized hardware involved. It can decode Motion-JPEG (Movie-JPEG, MJPEG, MJPG) AVIs, created with Miro (DC10, DC20 and DC30), FAST, Matrox and similar cards. It can now also encode JPEGs in a Zoran compliant way, meaning that the above mentioned cards can also playback AVIs created by the Codec. It supports interleaved MJPEG both for decoding and encoding. The MJPEG components can handle all major RGB and YUV formats as input and output formats.
