Ian's DivX vs. x264 test

You got DivX 6.1.1 (H263) on your computer vs. alpha build X264 (H264).

I used AutoScreenRecorder 2.1 Pro (freeware) has little dialog on top, but uses FLASH (viewable by anyone)!

DivX 6.1.1 under

600 Kbps
Multipass Nth Pass
Insane Compression

X264 build 555

606 kbps
Multipass Nth Pass
6 RDO (Production Quality)


DivX (234 k)
DivX 234 k
x264 (264k)

Winner you decide. DivX has better compression. DivX clearly has the edge in these files. It's cleaner. I think the resolution is a little smaller in X264 to make up for the slightly higher bitrate. x264 is suppose to be better because at low bitrates it is really efficent, but for recording desktop, it's not true.
