DivX Team's blog
DivX Labs was overdue for a new look. So we chained our web developer to his desk, fed him coffee intravenously until he came up with a site that has fewer pages and simpler navigation.
But wait...there's more. We also made room for tools and documentation of new technologies that will become available soon (can you say HEVC? hint hint). Stay tuned for these and other changes coming soon.
The site is still a work in progress so bear with us until we work out the last few 404 pages.
The DivX Team
Newer, better, awesomer…and free
In case you haven’t heard me shouting in excitement as I run through the streets, we just launched the latest version of DivX Plus® Software. I know, it’s about time, right? And as always, we believe in making great software available to everyone who wants it, so go get your free download now.
We’re proud that our latest offering delivers the same great video creation and playback you expect, along with more freedom and features than before. Learn more about DivX Plus Software or read on for a quick recap of why it’s awesome…
This latest release includes minor design changes and major improvements to our underlying engines for creation (encoding) and playback (decoding). In addition, we’re proud to announce two new features:
- MKV video streaming to any DLNA-compatible device in your home
- MP4 conversion so you can output video to play on iPhone, iPad and more
DivX HiQ provides H.264 support for Firefox on Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, 7 & Mac OSDec. 16, 2010, blog.divx.com - We know not everyone sits around thinking about video formats, but at DivX, we do. This means we’re not much fun at parties—but it also means that we’re always working on solutions to offer the ideal playback experience. For example, HTML5 <video> tag support has been a hot topic over the past year. The problem? Internet browsers support different video codecs and containers and there isn’t a consistent standard that works across all of them. The solution? Install DivX HiQ (which is powered by the DivX Plus Web Player) and get consistent video support on every major web browser, including H.264—even on a Mac.
Hey Microsoft—DivX already supports H.264 with HTML5 in Firefox
