    Wow.......why? Anyway, I don't even know what I'm going to do with it. Got the SN anyway.

    They did this a few months ago too. I've only used it once, but I guess free stuff is always good :)

    Yeah, it was early June when they last did this. I jumped on the deal, but haven't found a reason to use it yet. :eek:

    DivX on the Mac works through the QuickTime frameworks. When you installed the DivX Player, you also installed DivX codecs for QuickTime.

    Thank for posting this! I never got a license when they did it in June because the story hit the front page on Digg.

    This is a demo version.

    15-day trial of DivX Converter, 6-month trial of Codec, and DivX web player comes with.

    Still usable, but only for limited time.

    I took advantage of the previous promotion to acquire DivX Pro free of charge. The Registration panel of my DivX preferences pane reads as follows:

    Long story short: There is no difference between installations of DivX Pro with paid or free serial numbers--except your bank account.

    WOW....


    Thanks for this post I needed to get the Pro version of DiVX for work, thanks :cool::D

    I have seen some complaints that it's a 15-Day demo, follow the instructions because it worked for me.

    Sorry, I downloaded it from the site and that is what it told me. I must've used a different link or something.

    Of course that is what it told you. The download is the trial version. You apply the SN sent to your email address to register it and it becomes the full version. Lots of software operates in that way, like iWorks.

    Put the serial number in. It does not come unlocked when you download it, you need to unlock the pro features.

    Sorry everybody! I downloaded it though a different link on the DivX site that doesn't automatically email the SN, or at least not at the time I tried it. I didn't use the link provided. I went to the main DivX page and used the link "Free Download" thinking that it was what is referenced here, but the "Free Download" is for the trial version w/out a SN sent that is always available.

    So use the link here!

    Not something I have much use for, but it's hard to turn down free software.

    Out of curiosity, if you have both Divx Pro and Perian installed, which does Quicktime use for divx movie playback?
