What is AVI ReComp?  (from Mateusz Gola (aka Prozac))

AVI ReComp allows you to recompress your AVI files. Uses only XviD codec to recompression process. AVI ReComp can be very useful for users who want to clear their AVIs out of GMC or Qpel functions to prepare the clips for standalone DVD players. The program contains a feature of embedding subtitles into video.


AVI ReComp 1.5.5 is a software program developed by Mateusz Gola (aka Prozac). During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The primary executable is named avirecomp.exe. The setup package generally installs about 15 files and is usually about 12.51 MB (13,117,072 bytes). The installed file CheckUpdate.exe is the auto-update component of the program which is designed to check for software updates and notify and apply them when new versions are discovered. Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 10. While about 25% of users of AVI ReComp come from Brazil, it is also popular in Israel and the United States.
