    "So Disappointing!"

    October 6, 2013  |   By mzeeOwen

    Version: DivX 10

    Pros

    Wish I say could it was a good program. Uninstalled it without using it because of the Cons.

    Cons

    Malware Installed With Download
    I downloaded Divx. It silently installed all kinds of spyware and malware. It changed my browser settings, and substituted my computer ini file. It took me 5 hours to get rid of all that stuff. How can you allow this product to do that?

    Summary

    Cnet used to have a good name and one could download without worrying about malware. This is the third time that I have downloaded from you this year and every time there has been a problem like this. I used to download everything from Cnet preferably. It is sad to loose such an asset.

    "DOWNLOAD THIS APP IF LOVE TRASH-WARE (AND CRAP-WARE)"

    September 7, 2013  |   By FluffyNipper

    Version: DivX 10

    Pros

    NONE NONE NONE (DID I SAY NONE - YES, I DID!)

    Cons

    CHANGED MY HOME PAGE TO AN UNKNOWN SEARCH ENGINE (THAT MAYBE IS NOT MUCH MORE THAN BING REPACKAGED,) MAYBE INSTALLED SOME SPYWARE, CAUSED MY COMPUTER TO CRASH NUMEROUS TIMES, MADE ME SPEND TOO MUCH TIME REMOVING IT AND THE ACCOMPANYING JUNK-WARE. IMHO -- DON'T BOTHER: FIND AN ALTERNATIVE.

    "Worthless!"

    July 31, 2013  |   By CONSSTINK

    Version: DivX 9.1.1

    Pros

    Absolutely NONE!

    Cons

    Very difficult to uninstall. Before you download this and in case you don't believe me Google uninstall DivX. It's a nightmare.

    "Installed bloatware and didn't work"

    July 30, 2013  |   By davefrom1962

    Version: DivX 9.1.1

    Pros

    I know better now.

    Cons

    I installed the latest update and it changed my Chrome homepage and installed the ugliest and most useless toolbar I've ever encountered. Then I tried to play a TV show and DivX complained that it couldn't read the audio. I had no problem playing it in Applian.

    Summary

    There are better options that won't mess up your system.

    "Better than Windows Media Player"

    July 27, 2013  |   By NiteNinja

    Version: DivX 9.1.1

    Pros

    Cleanly installs itself with minimal intrustion, unlike similar reviews. If you read everything in the installer and uncheck things you don't want it to install, you'll get no toolbars or any intrusive updates. Everything free that you install wants you to install additional stuff.

    Player is faster, and less intrusive than Windows Media Player. No background processes, no link to Internet Explorer, and plays just about every file, including the ever elusive .mkv file.

    The borders fade away, making the video look like an applet on your desktop, and will not crash when you alt-tab to it from other applications such as a common bug with WMP.

    Sure there are other more dedicated players out there, but when it comes to a catchall app, I haven't seen better. Can even play video URLs such as Youtube and other flash video sites.

    Compatible with the K-Lite Codec Pack, which you can download through CNET as well.

    Cons

    Auto update service gets annoying, but you can disable this through the DIVX menu in your control panel.

    Does not have support for DVD Video or Blu-Ray. Adding this will make DIV-X player the best of its class.

    Summary

    Overall, this application replaces Windows Media Player for non-disc related video and audio files, being clean, easy to use, and very customizable without intrusive processes, startup apps, and ads. Highly recommend if you're fed up with WMP.

    "Download a your own risk"

    July 3, 2013  |   By 1danger

    Version: DivX 9.1.1

    Pros

    Any pros destroyed by the con

    Cons

    The program is mediocre. You can not delete the program.

    Summary

    There are enough other decent programs to use without using this dangerous one. This problem has been going on for some time. DivX is aware yet does nothing about it. So stay away.

    Updated on Jul 3, 2013

    I would have given no stars to this program but 1 is the lowest.

    "Installs other programs too!"

    May 26, 2013  |   By angelbaby0211

    Version: DivX 9.1.1

    Pros

    The main program seems to work.

    Cons

    Installed mulptiple other programs and add-ons in my internet explorer and firebox browser. Changed my search, homepage and all tabs to "delta search". I had to go in and individually remove/uninstall several related programs and add-ons! Should have paid attention when it set off my AVG security alert. DO NOT DOWNLOAD!!!!

    Summary

    DO NOT USE!!!
