DivX Plus Software for Windows

Also, DivX Plus Converter has a dramitically changed interface for those looking for advanced options and batch DivX and DivX Plus (MKV/H.264) video creation.
Guide: Converting MKV for the PS3
Did you know that the Sony PlayStation 3 is a DivX Certified device? In this guide, we'll show you how to use the free DivX to Go feature in the DivX Plus Player to convert MKV files for playback on the PS3. All you need is a blank disc or USB with enough space, lots of videos, and a PlayStation 3, of course.
Based on the valuable feedback we received on the previous beta release, we have been working hard to enhance the DivX Plus Web Player’s stability and performance, following our introduction of support for DivX Plus HD (MKV/H.264/AAC).
This 2.0.1 release should bring improved picture quality, better stability and more accurate buffering times.
While the HandBrake team decided to drop support for .avi in the 0.9.4 release, you can still find HandBrake useful for transcoding your videos for DivX Plus HD devices, since it will create .mkv files using x264.
Take a look at the video tutorial we put together to show you how to add the DivX Plus recommended settings.
With the solid announcement of DivX Plus HD devices in the near future, it seemed important to help people prepare their video content for the occasion. We’ve already published a DivX Plus encoding tutorial in our DivX Developer Portal, which includes our reference beta encoders, and we’ve even seen the StaxRip project implement the x264 compatible presets. We’ve followed up by publishing some compatible settings for HandBrake, which is capable of creating MKV files with H.264 video and AAC audio.
