    "A must have but not that great"

    July 6, 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 5, 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 8, 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!!!!!!!!!!

    Pros

    NONE - I can no longer trust CNET for safe downloads

    "Bundled with MALWARE!!!"

    November 3, 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!!!!
