"Limited Usefulness"

November 15, 2014  |  By Xtremetic

 |  Version: DivX Web Player 1.4.2 beta 2

Pros

It does actually work according to the DiVX test page. All the controls work without crashing the player, in contrast to the Adobe Flash player. The video looks superb.

Cons

Unlike the earlier DiVX Web Player with the DiVX HiQ extension, the latest version 3.2.2 will not play in popular sites Youtube and Vimeo, and neither will it supply decoding support for the HTML5 player in these sites. With sites that have the DiVX Web Player embedded in them there appears to be no hardware acceleration of the video, and the settings will not allow you to scale down from 1080p to 720p to reduce the CPU load. Unselecting post processing filters does not seem to help. Finding sites that use the DiVX player is a challenge

Summary

Only useful if you know of a site that hosts DiVX movies. Otherwise you would be better off playing Youtube h.264 video with the QuickTime player used in conjunction with the ViewTube script and Firefox.

Updated on Nov 15, 2014

I have found a website that does offer DiVX movies and trailers at http://stagevu.com and I tested the DiVX Web Player with a movie whose resolution is 1280 x 536, called 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012) 720p bluray'. The player used from this source did demonstrate good hardware acceleration because the CPU of my lowly Pentium M rig registered approximately 30% usage. Most people reading this can expect better results with their more up to date machine. Therefore I have concluded that the performance claims for this player are probably true.
