DivX HEVC Community Decoder
The DivX HEVC Decoder release marks an important step on the path to delivering comprehensive HEVC video support to the DivX Community. Following the release of the DivX HEVC video profiles and our DivX HEVC Muxer, we’re proud to release the HEVC Plugin for DivX Player 9.1.3. Now you can playback the DivX HEVC streams (up to 1080p) with AAC audio you muxed into MKV.
Note that this release is for Windows and Mac, and supports real-time playback up to 1080p on a relatively recent PC. We support the features for the HM-11.0 reference encoder’s random access main configuration, including Asymmetric Motion Partitions, Transform Skip, and Sample Adaptive Offset. We also added seeking capability, as well as improved speed and performance enhancements.
Ready to decode?
- Start with these short instructions (Windows) and (MAC) on getting set up (hint: you’ll need DivX Player 9.1.3)
- For something to watch, get Tears of Steel in DivX HEVC (full version at 720p and 1080p)
We hope you’ll give our decoder a whirl, and then share your feedback. We want to know what you think about the quality and also what it'll take to get you to make the switch to HEVC.
Up next is the DivX HEVC Encoder. Stay tuned…
