DivX codec is well known for adjusting of lossy encoding mechanisms, making it possible to compress videos into smaller files in such a way that they preserve a rather high visual quality. One can use various data encoding settings when compressing videos, but it should always be remembered that the smaller the file size, the more data is lost. The encoded data is then stores in a container or wrapper format similar to AVI.
