Huffyuv Review

Sven Sorensen
A fast, lossless Win32 video codec
A review of Huffyuv by Sven Sørensen

Huffyuv is a very fast, lossless Win32 video codec. "Lossless" means that the output from the decompressor is bit-for-bit identical with the original input to the compressor. "Fast" means a compression throughput of up to 38 megabytes per second on my 416 MHz Celeron.

Huffyuv is intended to replace uncompressed YUV as a video capture format. It is fast enough to compress full-resolution CCIR 601 video (720 x 480 x 30fps) in real time as it's captured on my machine. Huffyuv also supports lossless compression of RGB data, so it can be used for the output of programs like VirtualDub.

Huffyuv is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from video codec packs without restrictions. Huffyuv 2.1.1 is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).

This compression codec software is filed under:
  • Huffyuv Download
  • Freeware Video Codec Packs
  • Open source and GPL software
  • Major release: Huffyuv 2.1
  • Free Software Download

Compatibility with this compression codec software may vary, but will generally run fine under Microsoft Windows 10, 8, 8.1, 7, Vista and XP on either a 32-bit or 64-bit setup. A separate x64 version may be available from Neuron2.

Huffyuv has been picked by our editors as very good.
