DivX10 is a set of tools that can be used to play, convert and stream videos.
Specifically, you can install the DivX Codec pack, DivX Converter and DivX Player during installation. The installer will automatically install Google Toolbar. However, it is not possible to conceal this. If you are attentive and remove the appropriate checkbox, the installation won't take place.
The DivX player, a sleek and feature-packed program that plays high-quality DivX, AVI and MKV files, is still the core of this package.
This release adds a media server to the player, which lets you stream content from your videos to any DLNA compatible device.
The Converter allows you to easily convert high-definition content into DivX format. The new transcoding engine supports Intel Quick Sync Video hardware acceleration, which DivX claims can provide up to a 10-fold speed improvement over previous technologies.
You can convert videos to iPhone-friendly MP4s with The Converter. Just choose the profile you want from the dropdown menu.
DivX has been a bit of a hassle in the past because they charge for almost everything. The company is happy to remind you that everything this time around is completely free. It all comes free: the conversion engine, DLNA streaming and iPhone/ iPad output. So far, the only thing that will be charged is the Converter's MPEG-2 plug-in. Even then, the price of the final version may change.
Although there are many more video converters and players available, DivX content is the most popular. The latest version has a significantly improved performance as well as some new useful features.
