Create Tools with DivX265

Our DivX HEVC encoder is a simple command-line encoder that is designed so that other tools can be built around it.

A recent example of what you can do with the DivX265 (DivX HEVC/H.265) encoder is a GUI posted by david55 on VideoHelp.com. After trying a GUI for x265 he decided to try it out with the DivX encoder for its balance between speed and quality. It’s a simple interface that takes the command-line out of our command-line encoder. Just choose your input and output, adjust your settings and select an encoding mode, all using DivX HEVC encoder.

DivX Live Debut

DivX Live is the newest addition to our end-to-end HEVC solution. An exciting new feature still in beta, DivX Web Player (released in DivX v10.2), will support DivX Live streaming of HEVC video over MPEG-DASH right in your browser on Windows or Mac computers. The sections below will explain the new DivX Live streaming feature in greater detail.

What is DivX Live?

It is DivX’s simultaneous adoption of DASH and HEVC. DivX Live is a new feature built upon the adaptive streaming technology initially launched with DivX Plus Streaming. In technical terms, DivX Live implements the Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over Http (DASH for short) protocol for Live streaming. The following profile specifications are currently supported by DivX Web Player.

DivX Converter CLI Mode

Not a fan of using a GUI for your encoding? Or like to work strictly with command line prompts and terminals? Well, this post is for you. Starting with DivX 10.1.1 we added Command Line support to DivX Engine, the same engine that powers DivX Converter for media content transcoding.

Available on Windows and Mac, DivXEngine can be used for any existing profiles or presets, including HEVC.
