Avid Technology Inc. today offered access to codecs intended for use with Post products. Separate downloads are available for Mac OS X, Mac OS 9 and Windows.
“These codecs are to be used for Meridien JFIF and Uncompressed media on Mac OSX, Mac OS9 and Windows 2000/XP,” noted Avid. “These codecs are not for use with DV media on Avid Xpress DV or other Avid products. However, many Avid Xpress DV customers have been interested in the whereabouts of these codecs.”
Avid also indicated that the standalone Avid DV codec is included in the Goodies folder, located on the Avid Xpress DV 3.5 CD. It is available for separate download from the Knowledge Center as well.
Update: Shortly after posting this story Avid pulled the download from their Web site.
