Editors' review

Handling many popular file formats, DivX Plus for Mac is the latest DivX player for the Mac platform. With its editing and conversion options as well, we found it to be a great potential addition to any user's Mac toolbox.

As you would expect, DivX Plus for Mac handles DivX format video files, as well as MKV and AVI files. This latest version of the player also allows for conversion from MP4 format, so you can format existing video files for use on the iPhone and iPad. You can also use DivX Plus for Mac as a streaming platform to any DLNA-compatible device. (For those who need it, for an extra cost there's even a plug-in that converts MPEG2 files.) We tested DivX Plus for Mac on a MacBook Pro and it handled all the video files we threw at it. It was able to quickly convert our AVI and DivX files to MP4, which we played with no trouble on our iPad. While there are a lot of settings available for conversions, we found the default setting worked fine for us. Some neat extras are the options to combine multiple files into a larger file and to add subtitles and additional audio tracks using the built-in editor.

DivX Plus for Mac is a must-have for anyone with DivX video files, but even if you have only MKV or AVI files, DivX Plus for Mac can convert them cleanly for your mobile iOS device. We had zero problems with DivX Plus for Mac in our testing, and managed to move files back and forth between all our Apple devices with ease. The interface is clean and easy to use, and the software worked perfectly. What more could you want?

    "Close call for me - if you have this, uninstall!"

    Version: DivX 10.1.1

    Pros

    The developers get money in their pockets.

    Cons

    This is some shady software. It will give you pop ups telling you to update with no way to verify whether these updates are legitimately from the developer or someplace else. Unlike anything else in Mac, a simple drag and drop *will not* remove divx from your computer. Trying to remove it manually is nearly impossible. Thank god I cancelled the latest update that has a reputation for hijacking your browser settings with conduit.

    Summary

    Avoid at all costs. If you have it, find a way to uninstall.
