Did this game install Xvid on my system?
So I noticed the other day that I have the Xvid codec and player installed on my system. It seems to be around the same time I installed this game. Does this game install Xvid or should I start questioning family members why they are screwing with my PC?

I guess it did.
Had the same problem here. Saw a new XviD install and wondered where it came from because I only downloaded 4 games from the new humblebundle that day and this was the only one who did some installing after downloading.
Things like this ♥♥♥♥es me off, because you get it installed without warning or notice and you don't have a chance to deselect it.
In my case it had overwritten my Xvid codec I was using and reset my customization of it.
Got lots of error messages after deinstalling the Joe Danger Xvid codec and simply re-installing my old XviD didn't work. I had to de-install my whole codec pack and make a new clean install of it to get it working again.

Yeah I looked at the file modification times and they are near each other so I assume this game did install the Xvid. Hate ninja installing.

I noticed that too, thanks I thought I was going crazy lol

I'm not pleased that there was no warning on the store page that indicated that xvid would be installed. The game just isn't good enough to stay installed on my computer if it is going to be a vector for covertly installing unwanted software on my machine.

It does not appear that Xvid is installed when Joe Danger 2 is installed. However, it appears that Xvid MiniConvert is definitely installed by Joe Danger 2. I have no idea what it's used for.

You're wrong, and this can be verified by looking at the .vdf scripts the game runs upon launching.

Elaborate? That comment doesn't make much sense.

It makes perfect sense, if you open InstallScript.vdf you will see
"Run Process"
"xvid"
"HasRunKey" "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\Software\\xvid"
"process 1" "%INSTALLDIR%\\Redist\\xvid.exe"
