"Installs Google Chrome without request. Still 32-Bit."

January 22, 2012  |  By zunipus

 |  Version: DivX for Mac 7.2

Pros

None at all for me. Some may wish to keep the DivX Decoder QuickTime component in case they run into DivX video files.

Cons

The player app is lame. The Preference Pane is still 32-Bit. The Installer only lists that it is installing DivX files. And yet it force installs Google Chrome without asking permission. This is of course unscrupulous and unacceptable.

Summary

*This review is for version 8 (not 7.2) of the DivX installation*

I no longer recommend installing DivX and its associated files. I won't miss it.

I have uninstalled all of DivX due to the aftermath of installing version 8. I found that:

1) Google Chrome had been installed onto my Mac without any listing in the DivX ReadMe, without any warning and without my permission. I was forced to uninstall Google Chrome, which I refuse to use due to its user surveillance. Instead I use one of the open source Chromium alternatives that have no surveillance.

2) The DivX Preference Pane remains 32-Bit, resulting in the user having to restart System Preferences in 32-Bit mode. At this point in time that is annoying, archaic and demonstrates lazy programming.

I never liked the DivX Player in any case, never used it, and won't miss it. I also rarely run into DivX video any longer. I see no advantage in the format and no longer care about it, especially after discovering the aftermath items listed above.

It might be useful to hang onto the DivX Decoder QuickTime component if you are concerned that you may run into DivX video files in the future. I have kept it in my /Library/QuickTime/ folder. Don't bother with the DivX Encoder component.

Otherwise, good riddance DivX. I don't deal with customer disrespect and abuse.

"Makes watching videos impossible"

April 30, 2011  |  By Dogen183

 |  Version: DivX for Mac 7.2

Pros

There are none.

Cons

Not only doesn't it play video, it makes the screen go black with a blank white box in the middle so you can't do anything else, either. You have to cmd-Q out of your web browser and start over. Most irritating browser plugin ever.

Summary

Avoid. Avoid. Avoid. If you get a pop-up asking you to upgrade to the latest version it's already too late - that popup window won't ever close (whether you upgrade or not). Seriously pathetic software.
