NOTE: This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Enter your internal repository url

(this should look similar to

4. Choose your deployment method:

choco upgrade xvid -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade xvid -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0

Exit $exitCode

Highest Performance

Xvid runs very fast as it is optimized for the latest CPUs.
Recording videos from a camera in realtime or playing back HD video smoothly are not a problem.
Your computer will still have plenty of power left for your other tasks!

Plays Everywhere

A big advantage of Xvid compressed video files is that they play almost anywhere.
The Xvid software runs on many platforms and most popular video players support it.
Also, home entertainment devices like TVs or DVD/BD playsers can handle Xvid video.

Strong Compression

The Xvid codec compresses video to make them smaller.
It can compress video at a ratio of 200:1 or more compared to uncompressed video.
This makes transmitting the video over a network speedy or saves a lot of space on your computer's hard disk.

Great Picture Quality

While Xvid compresses video very well, it can do so without causing visible quality loss and by retaining
a sharper picture than other codecs do.
Xvid is "lossy" compression but aims at removing just those picture details that are not important for human
As such, it be seen as a MP3 for video.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).
