It wasn't just hype when we said earlier this year that DivX is among the first to deliver tools for HEVC content and playback. And it all starts with this first look at the new DivX HEVC 4K, 1080p and 720p profiles our team is developing. Keep in mind it only defines the VIDEO portion of the profiles at this time. Audio, features and everything else that make up a DivX profile are still in the works, so check back often or sign up for email alerts when we have something big to announce.
If you’re reading this and excited to start testing out the profiles, you already understand that HEVC, or H.265, is the next big thing in video technology. With the promise of up to 50% compression efficiency compared to today’s best encoding tools (AVC/H.264), we believe HEVC can help to drastically improve video streaming capabilities, particularly in a mobile environment, and facilitate 4K content production and delivery to new Ultra HD displays.
Here's where you'll find legacy DivX Connected documentation and guides.
HD video with true 5.1 channel surround sound, multiple subtitles and audio track support, smooth playback with hardware acceleration, and the ability to download everything you watch online. And with support for DIVX, AVI, MKV, MP4 and MOV, Web Player is a great choice to publish video to your website or blog. DivX Web Player now supports DivX Plus Streaming™ so you can enjoy purchased movies and TV shows without buffering right in your browser
