just saw this on VT
This is ok... but you can get the exact same thing and more as part of Toast 7 for not much more money.
Plus... with Toast you can convert DVDs to DivX and go back in the other direction... download DivX and go to DVD.
This thing doesn't handle MPEG2 at all.
MacMall has Toast for $40 now.
Good to see a final release, although the betas have been good enough for me
Edit: On the other hand, I'm not about to install a video codec that wants me to reboot the computer
If you are only interested in playback, there is no need for toast (if you don't already have it). The Divx6 codec (for playback only) is free. It also adds the ability to have the video preview screen in the finder window just like it was a QT file.
The player is free.
No, you do not have to reboot. You have to logout and then log back in.
That's almost as bad - I still need to quit everything I have running, cancel all my downloads, etc.
Well, you can always resume the downloads.
I love this blurb on the DivX website:
That's pretty funny.
Is there any benefit of using this version over the last fusion codec 3?
The DivX Fusion codec was beta. My guess is that the least they did was to remove the debugging code.
Hmm, kay. Makes sense. I'll dl it when I get home, can't do any harm now can it...
Quick question....after looking at the DivX site just want to check i've understood something correctly.
Can you burn a DivX format movie onto a recordable cd-rom, as opposed to a recordable dvd-rom and it'll work on a DivX player?
