DivX for Video Playback
Sometimes when you download a movie file off of the internet and can’t seem to open it with something such as Windows Media player, you may be missing DivX playback capability.
Usually if the video requires this, you will see a “missing codec” message inside the player. I have noticed that most of the time if I can’t play a video, I am missing either Quicktime or DivX codecs.
The Divx codec is mainly used due to its compression ability, which is said to shrink MPEG-2/DVD files down to one-tenth of their original size.
The playback software by itself is free, but if you want to create DivX files you are going to need the full package of utilities with a price.
Go download this file and see what advantages it can provide for you.
