Feb 25, 2014 Version: 10 OS: WinXP Ease of use: 9/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value: 8/10 Overall: 9/10

Is this free of charge again???

I must admit, I haven't used this since v6. So basically I can only refer to the stuff their website provides. And with it comes the DivX10 Format Support Chart. I'm sure the implementation of h.264 works fine, HEVC is also a promising candidate.
But what about the other features the of the converter? (see chart for this to acknowledge): NO support for Vorbis, NO support for Vobsub, but support for -IMHO- outdated RealMedia stuff. My temples are all bloody from scratching...

It may be good to see this soft being free again (can anybody actually completely back this?), the most vital codecs are supported, but no Vorbis and no Vobsub and what about Opus, although free and widely used...

So here's the score:
Ease of use 9 .. I'm sure, like many other tools, this is easy as pie to handle
Functionality 6 .. lack of free and widely spread formats
Value for $$$ 5 .. seems to be free of charge, except MPEG2 plugin

Feb 24, 2014 Version: 10.1.1 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 9/10 Functionality: 6/10 Value: 5/10 Overall: 6/10

In Win 7 dxva with MPCHM works with Radeon HD 4350 but not with DivX 8 Plus decoder.

Mar 26, 2010 Version: Plus 8 OS: Windows 7 Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 1/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 7/10

DivX may be the pioneer in this video compression game but I have been disappointed with the resulting videos.

I am extremely happy with xvid mpeg4 codec. I am from the photographiy field and always look for edge definition, overall sharpness + visible details in shadow areas. Something sadly lacking in any version of Divx.

Only saving grace is that my DivX certified standalone dvd player does accommodate xvid + ac3 rips.

Mar 17, 2010 Version: Divx 5 OS: WinXP Ease of use: 3/10 Functionality: 5/10 Value: 1/10 Overall: 2/10

Divx is dead..Too many free tools out there that do a better job at h264 encoding..Also it doesn't support files with vc-1 encoding..Very slow on my dual core compared to the freebies..I used to use divx religiously..Oh well, time to move on to bigger and better things..
