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?

"Abysmal malware - run away!"

October 27, 2013  |  By iNvisionStudios

 |  Version: DivX 10

Pros

None. Zero. Nada. Zilch.

Cons

Conduit search malware takeover of your Mac. No thanks. Even on the Divx forums. their support techs are overwhelmed with PO'd people that installed this. Even with this overwhelming evidence that they are KILLING their target audience, they continue to include this "feature" with their software. DIVX - wake up!

Summary

Avoid this like the plague, or your system will be infected and difficult to clean. The Conduit search malware installed takes over the search functionality of all of your browsers, directing you to use Bing, and redirecting broken links to Conduit search. It takes longer to remove all the pieces and parts than it does to install it. NEXT!

"UNINSTALLED!"

September 06, 2013  |  By zunipus

 |  Version: DivX 10

Pros

None I can think of.

Cons

The whole thing, PLUS it inflicts surveillance crapware onto your Mac. That's evil.

Summary

UNINSTALLED!

If you too uninstall this crapware (via the kindly provided Uninstaller), be sure to do a Spotlight search in BOTH your /Library/ folder AND your ~/Library/ folder for leftovers. I found a SLEW of DivX .plist files polluting my library folders, including one nasty file still residing in one of the Launch folders, which is an evil thing to do. Dump Them All!

Oh and talking about evil: While the uninstaller is running, it attempts to phone home to the DivX site to look for updates. Can you imagine? It wants to UPDATE your installation as you are uninstalling it.

WHY did I uninstall the DivX crapware? Because this recent 'Conduit' infliction garbage during installation is The Last Straw. I've had enough. I don't ever run into DivX video on the Internet any more. I don't care about DivX video any more. May DivX rot and die. I think we already have more than enough effective video formats without having to bother with this unimportant format family.

However, I am keeping a copy of the current installer around for just-in-case. But I highly suspect I'll never need it and will have forgotten why I ever bothered to keep it.
