Reencoding high-def WMV to XviD


XviD is currently the most reliable and efficient way to display high-definition content on a KiSS player. Unfortunately a lot of content is distributed as windows media files. If you are experiencing playback issues, this guide should help you make those files play.

  1. Download and install XviD
  2. Download and install lame mp3 ACM codec
    (uncompress to C:\Program Files\ and right-click the .inf file)
  3. Download and install VirtualDubMod
  4. Download and install AviSynth v2.5.x or higher
  5. Start Notepad and create an .avs file in the same directory as your .wmv file containing:

    DirectShowSource("videofile.wmv")
    LanczosResize(1280,720)
  6. Now start up VirtualDubMod and open the .avs file. Use the timeline slider to check that you can see your video.
  7. Now go into the Video menu and select Compression. Select the "XviD" codec and press Configure.
