VP30 VP31: On2 VP3

posted in Solutions

Quick Solution: http://www.vp3.com doesn’t host downloads anymore, but we have them mirrored here for Windows Media Player and here for QuickTime Player for Windows

Home page: http://www.vp3.com (not very useful since they don’t host any downloads anymore).

Once On2's proprietary codec, VP3 is now open source. It was maintained for some time by xiph.org, but then moved to theora.org.

If you have QuickTime 5 or 6 and you’re connected to the internet the codec will download automatically when attempting to play a file encoded in VP3. If not, the codec can be downloaded and installed manually at the links at the top of the page.

VP3 is cross-platform (can be in AVI or QuickTime container). Provided the codec is properly installed, both QuickTime Player and Windows Media Player can play VP3 in either container.

Note: The VP4 codec can decode VP3 contents.
