Editors' Review

DivX isn't just a powerful video converter, but a stylish universal video player as well. It can convert and play just about any video file you want and gives you plenty of advanced control over your product. Though some of its features are locked behind a paywall, it is worthy enough to be your sole conversion program.

In addition to a custom browser toolbar, this program's installation has a search page and home page takeover attached to the download. It tries to force you to accept one or the other, which is annoying. The program includes a video player in addition to a converter, but the two programs install separately from one another - you can't convert a video and then play it without launching the second program. DivX's player supports most formats and the converter lets you convert to just about any format you can imagine. However, the MPEG codec and a few others are only available as free trials that you have to pay to use after a certain amount of time. Some of the app's HD resolutions are only available if you upgrade to Premium, as well. Video converting isn't lightning fast, but it's not slow by any means. It took the program about two minutes to convert a five-minute video file. Video quality stayed intact.

While DivX won't blow you away with performance, the features and options the program offers merit plenty of acclaim. It deserves points just for being a video player and converter in one. Since DivX backs those options up with even more customization ideas inside the program, it's one of the better converters you'll find.

"Worthless Software"

April 08, 2015  |  By Mike98

 |  Version: DivX 10.2.5

Pros

No error(s) or problem(s) during the install.

Cons

When you buy a DivX movie from a website, you need the DivX Player to download this movie. After I downloaded this way 6 movies and burned these with the DivX Player or ImgBurn, all movies suddenly stopped playing more than one time when played on my Blu-ray Player and this Blu-ray Player has no problems with Blu-ray Discs. They simply revert to the start menu. Finally I unstalled the DivX Player and the uninstaller said the uninstall was successfully, but nothing was uninstalled.

Summary

Do not waste your precious time and money on this one!

"A must have but not that great"

July 06, 2014  |  By tomysshadow

 |  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.

"Update downloads and installs easily."

May 05, 2014  |  By swanjame

 |  Version: DivX 10.2

Pros

Exceptionally nice video quality. The update downloads and installs easily. I must also say that it was easy to opt out of the add-ons.

Cons

Not a real con, but I wish it would play Blu-Rays and I would pay extra for this capability.

Summary

Add Blu-Ray capability and it would be even better

"Divix Player"

March 31, 2014  |  By tryingalways

 |  Version: DivX 10.1.1

Pros

Sound and video was very good

Cons

On the earlier version, prier to this 10.1.1v, it was very slow to on come up on the screen, a little faster on this version

Summary

The best free media player's is Jet Audio's video and audio player. The pay program is cheaper than Real player and has a much better audio with more options.

"Good program, but VIRUSES LIKE NO OTHER"

March 08, 2014  |  By ThomasN7

 |  Version: DivX 10.1.1

Pros

The program itself is decent.

Cons

VIRUSES, VIRUSES, and MORE VIRUSES
Can't opt out and bundled in every update. Will hijack every browser there is, install spyware, and create 10 different network backdoors that could connect your computer to a botnet. Seriously bad. This download NEEDS to be removed from this site.

Summary

Good program, loaded with more spyware than any other major program I have literally ever seen. Free Smily .exe tier. Some of the malware that it installs could potentially hijack your computer and get you sent to jail. IT IS THAT BAD!!!!!!!!!!

"Bundled with MALWARE!!!"

November 03, 2013  |  By Unhappy-User

 |  Version: DivX 10

Pros

ZERO! There are NO Pros for this software. Read below.

Cons

This software is bundled with Malware. Supposedly by "ReSoft". You aren't given the option to opt-out of installing this crap. It hi-jacks your browser. It hi-jacked my Internet Explorer and Google Chrome. I've supposedly un-installed it from my control panel, but it keeps changing my home page to "snap.do" and "sweetpacks".

Summary

Believe that I won't be trying anymore software from CNET!!!!
