    "In the end, I just wanna play DivX encoded video's..."

    December 14, 2012  |   By eezee_cnet

    Version: DivX Plus Software 9.0

    Pros

    At least it lets me play video's encoded with DivX in my favorite player.
    It has an automatic update that works pretty well.
    If you want to use the player, be sure to check out the Preferences dialog, it has some nice options to play with and let's you set the player to act to your personal liking. (Watch out for the 'Delete after I watched'-option...)

    Cons

    The 'Plus' stuff is not necessary, for me. At all.

    Tiresome installation-'features', like: Some Video file formats are set to the DivX player (does not respect the system's settings/standard software), doesn't recognize the language of the system it's being installed upon (default subtitle language doesn't match the system's language), oh look; there's something we need to uncheck during the installation process, opens a non-informative and useless web page after installation (in a browser that's NOT set as the system's standard browser...).

    Summary

    Let me start this summary by saying I have my PC hooked up to my TV, so there's no need for me to burn anything or using anything else to watch DivX content.

    The DivX Plus player is nothing special, when it's about just playing video's.
    It's even a slow starter, compared to other players. And I don't like the fact it 'steals' video file formats (fortunately this can be undone via the Preferences menu within the player).

    I don't want a non-informative and useless web page opening up after a successful install/update (in the google's chrome browser, really...?! Are you kidding me, that's not even my standard browser of choice, I rarely use it...). I've already installed your software, don't bug me for it.

    The UI Design... Well, I don't care for it. It's just as ugly (or as beautiful, depending on your taste) as any other player that went for a dark theme. And who cares how a player looks anyway, when watching an HD video, you need to see it in full screen. Usability-wise; nothing revolutionary, but it gets the job done fairly nicely. No searching for this or that in weird or unexpected places. It's all there were it needs to be, without any clutter.

    However, for me, DivX Plus brings nothing unique to the table. Especially compared with other free players out there (with way more features for playback).

    All in all, it's just mediocre software. I'll say: Meh...
    (And in the future; try not to annoy users with unnecessary install-features... TIA...)

    "It Doesn't uninstall"

    December 4, 2012  |   By Rocklin CA

    Version: DivX Plus Software 9.0

    Pros

    None noted

    Cons

    Neither Windows uninstaller nor CCleaner could uninstall this program. You can use Revo Uninstaller to remove DivX Plus Converter but you must use the Pro version and the "forced uninstall" feature.

    "A good DIVX converter"

    November 23, 2012  |   By hobsshop

    Version: DivX Plus Software 9.0

    Pros

    The best at multiple conversion. You can convert different movies at the same time. you can join them, or do them seperately. You can make each one with a diferrent resolution.

    Cons

    The two major draw backs are the limited file types that it will convert. and the number of errors that it finds, For these I must use other converters.

    Summary

    If Divx converter converted more file types and and had less errors [which are less than previous versions] it would be the only one I used. For the things it does convert it does best job.
