With DivX 10.2, Codec Pack was removed from the DivX Software bundle. For those of you who used the DivX codec in third party software to play or create your DivX files, here’s an explanation of why we did this and what this means for you.
Divx 10 Pro
Why did we do this?
K-Lite Mega Codec Pack includes codecs for the most popular compressions like Divx and Xvid as well as some of the less popular but still necessary codecs. The best K-Lite Codec for Mac – Perian Perian is one stop codec resource on Mac similar to K-Lite Codec Pack on Windows. The K-Lite Codec Pack is a free software bundle for high quality playback of all your music and video files. It is easy to use, but also very flexible with many options. Enjoy problem free playback of MKV, MP4, AVI, FLV, and all other multimedia file formats. How do I get RealPlayer to play video and movie files that were created using the DivX, Div3, or Div4 codecs? To play DivX, Div3, or Div4 files on your computer, you need to install the DivX codec that allows the video to play.Codec. Furthermore, Windows 10 Codec Pack can be asked to install Media Player Classic unless you already have it, tune settings for it, or enable playback on double-click for unencrypted Blu-ray.
We want to simplify what we distribute and how, so that only the filters used by DivX Player and Web Player, DivX Converter and DivX Media Server applications will be installed. This ensures that you get exactly what they need for your unique use of DivX software, and also reduces the DivX bundle size and install footprint.
What this means for you:
When it comes to the DivX software—Player, Web Player, Converter, Media Server—you won’t see any change. You’ll still be able to play, create, and stream all the same videos just as before. If you had previously installed DivX Codec pack, it will remain on your system even after updating to DivX 10.2.
We want to focus on improving and updating our tools so that you always have the best experience possible with DivX products and the DivX format. By focusing on DivX applications, we can also deliver new codecs and features, like HEVC, and get them to you faster. DivX also has a Software Integration solution that allows us to work with other software creators to ensure compatibility with the DivX format—for file playback or creation. This all will guarantee compliance with the more than 1 billion DivX certified devices in the world.
