Editors' review

The creators of the popular DivX video format also make this freeware bundle for playing and encoding DivX files. Video and audio playback is fairly smooth, and you can shift among full-screen, compact, and console modes using the right-click context menu. Skins are available on the publisher's site.

The installation offers a six-month trial of the Pro version of the encoder. The help file is external, on a live Web site, and not very helpful for answering basic questions such as what formats you can play and where to install skins. The codec's user guide is a separate download.

The program eats nearly 20MB even when there's no video playing. But, if you simply need to view DivX files or convert other files to the DivX format, this bundle is an adequate option.

    "A must have but not that great"

    Version: DivX 10.2.1

    Pros

    You can play DivX video, a very common and unique format with good compression.

    Cons

    Converter is pricey - why? Plenty of good free software that do the same like SUPER. Player sometimes distorts video or plays it upside down, but it is getting better with each update. MPC-HC is still better for AVI files IMO. The Web Player never seems to play anything - VLC Player plays it instead and when i disable that no DivX Web Player. (??) It also with each new install will reset the filetype associations to itself and download DivX Movies as well, which is quite annoying.
