The Portable Research Video Group's (PVRG) PVRG-MPEG software codec is a software for generating MPEG files. This package implements the MPEG Committee Draft (Santa Clara '91) compression specifications with some encoding algorithms based on MPEG simulation models 1-3, though not identical. It should be able to encode and decode streams for most MPEG players.

This package is implemented in software for simulation purposes. It has not been optimized for speed - parts have been kludged from the PVRG-JPEG codec. We have a small internal program interpreter for experimenting with different rate control techniques.

Input format is YUV. Software like NetPBM or ImageMagick are able to generate YUV format from most other formats.
