  1. The ONLY reason I don’t own an AppleTV is because it cannot play divx movies, of which I own a few hundreds. I have converted all of my DVDs to divx so that I can have a number of them with me when I travel. Please someone explain to me why Apple does not let me paly divx on AppleTV and flac in iTunes/iPod.

  2. Actually maczac, they send you a serial number which turns the application into the full blown version with all Pro features. While I wish I didn’t need it, there are occasions when I am glad to have it. Also, since they are giving the pro version away free at the moment, I used a few different emails so that I could get enough serial numbers for my entire family.

  3. Apparently some posters above don’t know/visit UseNet/Newsgroups or, understandably, WinMx, which is Windoze only. And don’t seem to use bit-torrent either.

    If did – then wow, is an entire world of divx/avi movies available that rivals Netflix, Blockbuster, et al.

    Be that as it may – VLC is the app for divx, and Toast/QT Pro/VisualHub can export to divx that is ready to go for any DVD player able to read divx.

    Simple way to put it – divx works. Is to DVD same as mp3/4 is to regular Audio CD. A fine compression that is very watchable on regular TV, no idea about HD, sorry.


  4. No one needs DivX. As Daniel Eran wrote: “hackers took Microsoft’s video codec, based largely upon MPEG-4 Part 2 ASP (H.263), and created their own version using the basic AVI container from Video for Windows. The result was DivX. Since then, DivX has delivered newer versions fully compliant with MPEG-4 ASP, but all of those codecs are still based upon the minor advancements made to the old MPEG-2 video, and all still use the archaic AVI container format, which inefficiently wastes a lot of disk overhead.”

    DivX is based on old Microsoft code. That should be enough reason to stay away.

    Why a Mac user would encode something in DivX rather than QuickTime stumps me.
