  1. Hi guys,

    Is there a place (website) I can find and download video samples (AVI) for free ? (for academic/research purposes)

    I am looking for different types of samples varying in different aspects e.g :

    1) complexity (frequency, e.g. high freq - football match with background spectators moving a lot, lowfreq - video of a ball bouncing in a plain background etc.)
    2) various colours,
    3) motion (sort of related to (1) ),
    4) frame-rate (fps)
    5) resolution (e.g. 640x480, 800x600, 1024x768 etc..)
    6) different audio rates, no audio at all
    6) Different formats (if possible) ,e.g. MPEG-2 PS/ES streams, MPEG-4, AVI

    many thanks!

    Note "AVI" is a container format, and can hold many different types of video & audio compression, accessory streams

    The most common samples used in academic research , video codec testing, are collected at xiph, derf's collection . They are not AVI wrapped, but you can manipulate them however your wish (e.g use for testing different compression schemes, different containers)

    Another large repository of various video format is at . You have may have to dig through subdirectories to find what you want
