Why You Need DivX Now More Than Ever

Without it, you miss out on the freedom to play your favorite movies where you want

Not long ago, an article came out on Lifehacker called What’s the Difference Between All These Video Formats, and Which One Should I Use?

The article was a largely-useful breakdown of what the layman might need to know (and not know) about portable video formats. It talked about why video files need to be compressed and decompressed, gave a short history of codecs and containers, and pointed the reader toward a likely path to successful ripping and sharing of their favorite movies and TV shows.

But like most simplifications of complex things, it got some parts…well, wrong. And of course we noticed the errors that had to do with DivX.

DivX is Headed to Chicago for the Next gdgt Live Event

A while back, DivX sponsored the gdgt live event in Austin, TX during SXSW 2010. We handed out t-shirts, showed off some of the latest DivX Certified gadgets, and met a lot of awesome DivX enthusiasts. We had so much fun that we are attending and sponsoring the next event in Chicago. If you live in the Chicago area (or you are close enough to drive there), then head on over to the Gallery 2433 on May 12th.

DivX will be there with the latest DivX gadgets, including a DivX Plus HD Blu-ray player from Philips that plays MKV files. We will also be showing people how quick and easy it is to transfer your Internet movies to any DivX Certified device with the new DivX Plus Player. Did we mention we’ll have DivX t-shirts and free DivX Pro Software? You can find all of the details and a map of the location after the break. More…
