DivX Plus Software

Today is a great day! We’ve been working really hard over the last year on the latest version of DivX Software. DivX 8 you ask? Nope. We call it DivX Plus Software even though technically it is version 8. Why? Because it’s leaps and bounds ahead of DivX 7 in a couple of ways:
  • It’s completely redesigned from soup to nuts and debuts new format features
  • Provides an easy way for users to transfer their videos to DivX devices.
DivX Plus Software truly is the beginning of our vision for what DivX Plus will become as DivX Plus Devices start to hit the market.

DivX Plus Software has a ton of new features, but here’s a sample of some of the things that our Labs community might like:

DivX Plus Web Player 2.0.2
A couple of weeks ago, we gave you Web Player 2.0.1. DivX Plus Software includes 2.0.2, which has many performance improvements over 2.0.1. We think you’ll really like it, give it a shot and let us know what you think.

Free DXVA hardware acceleration
In DivX Plus Software, we’ve taken all of the technology components like the DivX Codec, H.264 filters, and MKV Tech Preview and combined them together into the DivX Plus Codec Pack. One of the best things about the codec pack is that it now includes Free DXVA hardware acceleration for H.264 video. Due to inconsistencies in the DXVA implementation between various graphics cards, we’ve left DXVA off by default. But if you’ve got a graphics card that supports it, open up ‘codec settings’ and turn DXVA on in the ‘Advanced’ tab to let it rip.

DivX Plus Converter – Free MKV
Do you love MKV like we do? MKV is quickly sweeping the globe as the best video format for delivering high quality video through the interwebs. We love it because it does a great job handling amazing quality H.264 video with extra features like multiple audio tracks, subtitle tracks, and multiple videos in a single file. That’s why we’ve chosen MKV as the basis for the DivX Plus HD format.

Back in November, DivX Plus Web Player brought streaming MKV to the web. Now we’ve unleashed DivX Plus Converter on you. In addition to being completely redesigned, DivX Plus Converter now lets you convert your videos to DivX Plus HD for free. That’s right, the new DivX Plus Converter outputs MKV/H.264 absolutely free forever. For DivX/MPEG-4 ASP output it continues to be a 15-day free trial. So, the message pro MKV is loud and clear here… Besides, It it also lets you create DivX Plus videos with advanced features, like authored chapters and smooth fast-forward and rewind. Did I say that it's FREE? Download DivX Plus Software to try it out for yourself.

DivX Plus Player – DivX to Go™
To be perfectly honest, you’ll get a 100% free video converter if you decide to use the new DivX to Go available through the new DivX Plus Player. The engine is the same so the differences reside on that being a more streamlined step-by-step wizard for users to easily spot which DivX Certified device they have and get the their content to play on the device without having to know anything about profiles and settings.

Last but not least, the new DivX Plus Player just looks and moves much nicer :-) Give it a spin and let us know what you think on the DivX Labs forums or hit us up at @DivXLabs on Twitter.
