Xvid Textures

Where does Panda look for Xvid codecs for playing movie textures? I want to make sure I have them in the right places.

The current version of Panda3D (1.2.3) uses a library called OpenCV to provide avi texture support. I haven’t found any way to supply codecs to this library.

An upcoming version of Panda will replace this with the library FFMpeg, which seems to load codecs from the standard places.


Ah thanks… the little details right?

ffmpeg is a important feature for the utility I am writing.
