Etymonix SoftReel is a faster than real-time MPEG-2 video decoder that has been optimized extensively for single-core and multi-core systems. It enables smooth high-quality playback of native MPEG-2 video files (MPG, VOB, DAT, M2P, M2V, ATI MP2) and compatible AVI files ('EM2V' and 'PIM2' formats) up to HD 1920x1152 in Windows Media Player and other DirectShow-compatible applications.
SoftReel's robust design makes it resilient to bitstream errors (e.g. from transmission glitches or scratched video discs). It has been extensively tested on a wide range of x86 processors and Windows operating systems.
Its key features are:
- Compatible with ISO/IEC 13818-2 (MPEG-2 video) and ISO/IEC 11172-2 (MPEG-1 video) International Standards
- Decodes MPEG-2 standard-definition (SD) and high-definition (HD) video streams up to 1920x1152, including:
- Unencrypted DVDs with MPEG-2 audio (a third-party audio decoder is required for AC-3 audio)
- MPEG-1 video
- Super Video CD (SVCD), China Video Disc (CVD) and Video CD (VCD)
- Supports all MPEG-2 profiles/levels (excluding scalability extensions) and chroma formats (4:2:0, 4:2:2 and 4:4:4)
- Exceptional video quality achieved using highly precise computations
- Resilient to errors in MPEG-2 video streams
- Real-time playback of 1920x1080 HD video streams on fast x86 processors
- Optimized for multi-processors, up to 4 threads
- Up to 5 times faster performance than version 1.x
- Software-only solution does not require expensive hardware
- Optimized for MMX/SSE/SSE2
- Frame-accurate seeking within AVI files
- Enables MPEG-2 audio playback from MPEG-2 program files
- Configurable user settings
- User-friendly one-click setup program
- Perfect for sharing and viewing MPEG-2 files recorded by various camcorders (such as JVC Everio)
- Can easily be integrated into DirectShow applications (for developers)
- Ideal for kiosks, digital signage, PowerPoint presentations and watching video clips
