DivX 10.2.3: Now Playing SMI Subtitles

Version 10.2.3 of DivX Software is available today. Now in DivX Player, you can enjoy your videos with multiple languages at once thanks to added support for .SMI subtitles.

DivX Player can also display two subtitles at once for any supported subtitle format, including XSUB, SRT, and more. By default, the two subtitles will be displayed one on top of the other at the bottom of the video, but you can move the top subtitles around anywhere in the video window.

Subtitle edit
Subtitle workshop

Making SMI subtitle files is easy with these tools. Just add a line of text, select the timeframe for when the text should appear, and save the subtitles in SMI format.

Once you’ve made your subtitles, make sure the .smi file and your video file have the same name and are in the same folder for DivX Player to automatically display the subtitles when your video starts playing. You can also manually select your subtitles or choose a different language by right-clicking on the playback screen and selecting the Subtitle menu.

Enjoy your videos!

SMI 자막 만드는 방법

시중에는 SMI 자막을 쉽게 만들 수 있는 다양한 방법들이 있습니다. 다음은 DivX 소프트웨어 에서 정상 동작함을 확인한 대표적인 SMI 생성 툴입니다.

위의 방법을 이용하시면 SMI 자막 파일을 쉽게 만들 수 있습니다. 삽입하고자 하는 텍스트를 추가하고, 텍스트가 나타날 시간대를 선택한 후 SMI 파일 포맷으로 자막을 저장하시면 됩니다.

DivX Player에서 비디오를 재생할 때 자동으로 자막이 표기되기 위해서는 자막을 만든 후 .smi 파일과 비디오 파일의 이름이 동일해야 하며, 두 파일이 같은 폴더 안에 있어야 합니다. 또한 마우스 오른쪽 버튼을 클릭하여 자막을 수동으로 선택하거나 다른 언어를 선택할 수 있습니다.

DivX 10.2: Removing Codec Pack

With DivX 10.2, Codec Pack was removed from the DivX Software bundle. For those of you who used the DivX codec in third party software to play or create your DivX files, here’s an explanation of why we did this and what this means for you.

hp-101-hero

Why did we do this?

We want to simplify what we distribute and how, so that only the filters used by DivX Player and Web Player, DivX Converter and DivX Media Server applications will be installed. This ensures that you get exactly what they need for your unique use of DivX software, and also reduces the DivX bundle size and install footprint.

What this means for you:

When it comes to the DivX software—Player, Web Player, Converter, Media Server—you won’t see any change. You’ll still be able to play, create, and stream all the same videos just as before. If you had previously installed DivX Codec pack, it will remain on your system even after updating to DivX 10.2.

We want to focus on improving and updating our tools so that you always have the best experience possible with DivX products and the DivX format. By focusing on DivX applications, we can also deliver new codecs and features, like HEVC, and get them to you faster. DivX also has a Software Integration solution that allows us to work with other software creators to ensure compatibility with the DivX format—for file playback or creation. This all will guarantee compliance with the more than 1 billion DivX certified devices in the world.

Questions or suggestions? Tell us about it on our Forums.

**Edit: August 18, 2014**
For those of you who would like to use the legacy DivX Codec Pack to convert and play DivX MPEG-4 videos in third-party programs, you can download it here.

DivX HEVC 4K at CES – today!

DivX is driving the adoption of the HEVC standard across the video industry sooner than anyone expected, and this was made clear at our exhibit during CES 2014.

divxatces2014

For those who don’t know, HEVC is a new compression standard that promises to deliver video with up to 50% bitrate savings at the same quality as H.264. And 4K is a video resolution with four times the pixels of 1080p.

Just a year ago, industry analysts were saying that HEVC adoption for consumer content services was at least 5 years away and that devices wouldn’t support the standard until about 2015. But the DivX team is set on proving them wrong. In September 2013, we launched DivX 10, the first consumer software to enable high-quality DivX HEVC video creation and playback. We beat VLC, Media Player Classic and GOM Player, and in just 3 months, DivX 10 has been downloaded more than 15 million times. We are also working with key chipmakers MStar, Broadcom and ST Micro to enable DivX HEVC 4K playback in televisions and set-top boxes. More…

WTF is HEVC?

High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) or H.265 is a new draft video compression standard and the successor to H.264/MPEG-4 AVC (Advanced Video Coding). Under development by the ISO/IEC Moving Picture Experts Group and ITU-T Video Coding Experts Group, HEVC is designed for encoding (converting) and decoding (playing) video streams that can be stored and delivered more efficiently and economically. Simply put, HEVC can deliver the same visual quality as H.264 with about half the bitrate.

As of today, HEVC is officially ratified by the ITU Video Coding Experts Group (VCEG) and the ISO/IEC Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG). And since we’re one of the leaders in digital video, we have already been working on developing the next-generation DivX video profile based on this new H.265-based standard (get a refresher on existing DivX profiles). Once deployed in software and licensed to consumer electronics companies, we’ll be among the first to deliver tools to create HEVC content and DivX Certified devices on which to play it back. More…
