FFDshow is a filter for decoding MPEG4 files (and not only) such as DivX, XviD and others. It is under continuous developpment (updated often) and sometimes keep compatibility with older filters, but not as much as DIvX and XviD. Usualy, FFDshow has more problems in playing older files than the official codecs.
To find out wich exact codec is used to compress a file use utilities {like gspot or virtualdub). Truth may not be what you think.
Yes, I know that compatibility is often overestimate, while it should be a must for newer versions..
But I checked with GSpot and the videos resulted coded with DivX v4 if I remember correctly (but maybe with v5).. At the moment I don't remember the exact version (has passed plus a year now from when I checked), but in next days when I'll find some time I'll check again
Thank you anyway adicoto for your reply :)
