Divx video codec is just fantastic for me because I make video tutorials and the finished product is great. I have tried other codec’s but nothing compares to Divx video codec. And this is a free version, so image what the paid version can do.
“DivX® 7 for Windows is a free download that provides everything you need to enjoy high-quality digital videos on your computer, including HD H.264 (.mkv) videos with AAC audio and videos created using all previous versions of DivX technology. You can also play your DivX files (.divx, .avi) on millions of DivX Certified® devices today. Look for DivX Plus™ HD Certified devices later this year that will support playback of all DivX and DivX Plus files, as well as .mkv (H.264/AAC) videos from the Internet.”
I also use Divx to convert all my DVD movies to avi format then I am able to put 5 movies on one DVD disc instead of only one. Divx also plays in my home DVD player. When buying a new DVD player you should always check if it is Divx compatible because it is becoming the most popular video format for home users. All newer model DVD players are Divx compatible.
