Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Nov 6, 2013

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.

Developer's Description

DivX is the first of its kind, award-winning video software that includes everything you need to play, create, and stream all the most popular digital video formats, including DivX, MKV and HEVC up to 4K. Use DivX Converter to create DivX, AVI, MKV, and MP4 videos. Converting videos in DivX formats ensures your files will play on more than 1 billion DivX Certified devices. Easy, one-click conversion makes file savings and device compatibility accessible to anyone. The ability to set bitrate, limit video resolution and file size, combine multiple clips or save custom presets allows more advanced users the ability to personalize the encode experience. HEVC encoding modes give you even more control over when to maximize quality or prioritize speed. With the optional paid MPEG-2 Plug-in, DivX Converter can also convert MPEG-2 video formats (MPEG, TS, VOB, SVCD) into DivX formats to give you major file savings.
