Huffyuv

A fast, lossless Win32 video codec developed by Ben Rudiak-Gould. 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 a 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 is captured. Huffyuv also supports lossless compression of RGB data, so it can be used for the output of programs like VirtualDub.
