YMPEG: Fast MPEG-1/2/VCD/SVCD/DVD/KVCD Codec
YMPEG is a first Freeware MPEG Codec which can integrate itself with Windows and offers seamless encoding from your favorite application
YMPEG is Windows AVI codec (VFW). After installation, it becomes part of Windows so that it can be used by any application which uses Windows Compression Manager (like VirtualDub, Adobe Premiere, AE, Vegas etc.). It can also be use for real-time MPEG encoding.

Initial implementation of YMPEG was based on various freeware including BBMPEG and MPEG Software Simulation Group (MSSG) source code. However, current version of YMPEG is enhanced with much faster and sophisticated algorithms (but still experimental) .
YMPEG produces good output at high speed though there is a big scope for enhancement.
Using YMPEG is as simple as selecting YMPEG as video and audio compression codec from your application.See YMPEG tutorial using VirtualDub..
