DivX Pro Codec includes a suite of powerful encoding tools enabling the highest levels of visual quality, compression and control that can reduce an MPEG-2 video (DVD format) to ten percent of its original size
DivX Pro™ provides advanced features and tools designed for discerning videophiles looking to squeeze the highest quality possible from their DivX® video files. DivX Pro offers up to 40% better compression than DivX 5 and includes integrated playback support for all the groundbreaking features of the DivX® Media Format.

DivX 6 introduces the DivX Media Format. DivX Media Format allows you to watch DivX videos (including DivX VOD movies) with advanced interactive features on your PC such as video menus, subtitles and alternate audio tracks.

The DivX Create Bundle also comes with DivX Converter™, allowing you to convert nearly any digital video into a DivX® media file in one easy step with its simple ‘drag and drop’ functionality. The DivX Converter includes an optional MPEG-2/DVD plug-in for an additional fee.

In addition, both bundles include The DivX Player. The DivX Player™ is capable of playing every DivX file ever created, with integrated support for advanced features of the DivX Media Format and special enhancements for high definition (HD) playback, providing the ideal way to enjoy all your DivX videos.

DivX Pro is available to purchase as part of the DivX Create Bundle, and comes with a massive 6 months trial period. DivX Converter comes with a 15-day trial period. Neither are necessary for DivX playback, and if you are not interested in DivX conversion, it is recommended that you download and install the completely free DivX Play Bundle.
