The original in game videos for Outpost 2 were encoded using the Indeo Codec at resolution 320x240p. The Indeo Codec is not included on modern operating systems and is no longer in active use. It must be installed to view the original videos in game. Additionally, modern versions of Windows may now block the Indeo Codec due to security exploits that were not fixed.
In 2014, the in-game videos were re-encoded using the FFDShow codec pack and simultaneously upscaled to a resolution of 640x480p.
