Publish DivX Videos On the Web

English | Deutsch | Français | 日本語 | Español

DivX Web Player lets you watch DivX® videos right in your browser. And if you have your own videos that you’d like to share on your website or blog, DivX Web Player is all you need.

If you can copy and paste, you have enough know-how to stream a DivX video from your site. If you scoff at automatic HTML code generators, then our Developer Guide is for you.

Option 1:
Code Generator

Option 2:
DivX Web Developer Guide

Show off more videos
Along with easy HTML code creation, the Code Generator lets you add in recommended videos with your embedded DivX Web Player.

For the developer in you
For video publishers looking for a tool to publish high-quality videos online for free: this Developer Guide, a little HTML and some JavaScript is all you need to get started. (Audience not included;)

HTML5 Demo

As of version 2.1, the DivX Plus Web Player supports the HTML5 API, so it can be embedded and controlled using the <video> tag and open web standards such as JavaScript. It takes full advantage of the <video> tag’s attributes by allowing publishers to create seamless playback experiences and custom controls for DivX, AVI, MKV, MP4 and MOV videos across multiple browsers: Firefox and Chrome (Internet Explorer & Safari Coming in full release version).

This is made possible by browser extensions included with the Web Player that can easily be enabled or disabled by users to allow them to choose their default HTML5 player.
