  • FourCC: BINK (note that some FourCC lists assert that BINK is a FourCC for general-purpose multimedia containers; however, Bink data is always known to be encapsulated in a custom container format)
  • Company: RAD Game Tools
  • Samples:, countless video games

Bink is a video codec that purports to use every video coding technique (DCT, FFT, Wavelet Coding, Vector Quantization, Motion Compensation) under the sun and used in a large number of computer and console games. The video is packaged in custom Bink files.

Each plane is coded separately. The Y plane is always coded first in each frame.
