10.7.1 (See all)

With DivX you get DivX Converter, DivX Movies, DivX Player, and a Web Player in one bundle. It is quite reasonable to ask: how does the new version differ from the previous ones?
The included player supports various formats of audio and video: DivX, AVI, MKV, MP4, MOV. It now comes with a feature called DivX To Go, which formats your videos for playback on any DivX-certified device you have. Besides that, DivX now supports multiple subtitles and audio tracks, smoother fast-forward and rewind options. It also automatically generates chapters for any played video. And its support of the MKV format allows you to view high-definition video with all the described features.

DivX Player also keeps a library of the videos you have. It allows you to create video playlists sorting files by date, genre, etc., and track your downloads, which can be done through the player. Notably, you can begin watching the video before its full download is complete.

DivX Converter, which comes with the bundle, allows you to create MKV videos and standard DivX video files. While converting, you can remove any unnecessary data from the video (subtitles for example), limit the final file size and combine several pieces into one movie.

DivX Web Player is created for providing high-resolution video through your browser. It supports a number of formats and the MKV features (multiple audio tracks, subtitles, etc.).

To sum up, the new DivX improves on its video playback, performance, and stability, as well as subtitles rendering, video sharping filters, etc. Besides, it features an integrated video conversion and uploading. Its Converter application will be handy if you need to change the file format or merge videos; and the Web Player will help you enjoy high-quality video on-line.
