DivX Labs February News Roundup
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.
