    "The Xvid coded is very useful. It is free and does not contain ad-ware. It runs swiftly and does not take up a lot of space on your pc. It is convenient to be able to play the compressed videos on most devices/ This is because it is very versatile. Most platforms, video players and even home entertainment devices like televisions are able to handle it. It can compress at 200:1, saving space and time. The picture quality remains excellent."

    "While 3GP is a widely use video codec that can get file sizes very small, it does make videos a bit blurry on Todays larger screens. If you need to encode video that can be played on a lot of mobile platforms, 3GP is still the way to go."

    "I think h.264/mpeg-4 is the best video codec because it's the most commonly used format. Since it's the most commonly used it is great for making videos since it is compatible with most softwares."
