DivX Free 5.2.1

Updated: 9 Sep 2004 | Freeware | 7.36MB | Downloads: 3361259

We're happy to announce the official release of DivX 8!

This is the latest version of the codec DivX 5 ! The best and the most used codec in the world ! You need to install this software if you want to encode a divx5 movie or if you want to see a MPEG 4 movie.
You can now select between two different versions of divx video: divx and divx Pro. divx remains free, as always, and you can download it for no cost below.

DivX Pro is the professional-level product, but personal users may purchase DivX Pro for $19.99. And if you`re willing to watch an occasional pop-up ad while you browse the web, you can download an ad-supported version of divx Pro for no cost at all. We wanted to find a way to make divx Pro available for no cost to all personal users, and this seemed like a good way to do it.

By default, we`re giving you the version with the most features for the lowest cost, which is the ad-supported version. Be sure to change your choice below if you want to download something different.

Changes from DivX Free 5.2 to DivX Free 5.2.1 :

- Installer option to enable generic MPEG-4 playback component
- Support for Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2
Includes DivX Player 2.5.5
- The update application to allow update checks when system locale is not supported
- The registration application to notify the user when they are already registered

- The trial expired message to show every time a trials expires
Fixed (Decoder):

- An issue where blocks were skipped when video contained multiple consecutive B-frames
- A stall that occurred with some media players during DivX playback or on exit
- An issue causing Explorer to run slowly when showing thumbnails of DivX files

I only installed it last night, so I rated it good.
If you watch every window on the installation, the two checkboxes for installing google toolbar and something else( mozilla firefox I think) appear, and can be unchecked by you before installing.

DivX Player: the DivX Player is the official playback application from the creators of DivX video.

DivX Pro: the most advanced version of DivX video compression technology!

DivX MPEG-4 Audio Compressor: if you are using a DivX codec 4, 5 or later for playing DivX 3 contents and you do not have the DivX 3.11 Alpha codec installed you might need this tool.

DivX Subtitle Displayer: a program that can display subtitles while playing DivX movies.

DivFix: was created to be able to watch partially downloaded DivX (AVI) movies.

DivX AntiFreeze: Sometimes video clips contain invalid frames that cause Media Player to freeze the image. DivX AntiFreeze avoids such freezings.
