Overview

Watching media files with HD video and sound has never been easier, thanks to the DivX Plus software package! The package contains quite a lot of useful applications, such as the computer player, the web player, converter, the latest codec pack and a 15-day trial period for the DivX Pro player. This free software package is more than anyone could ever need to watch videos and movies in high definition, offline and online. However, if you feel that you need more powerful features for converting or watching certain media files, do not forget that there is always the option of purchasing the DivX Pro application.

Installation

Due to the fact that it is able to stream HD video and audio files, it is only natural that users will need to have the machine to support the high definition content. More exactly, the minimum requirements for this application include: Pentium 4 processor or HD H.24 equivalent, at least 64RAM on the video card and a 1280x720 display device able to stream in 24-bit color. As you have probably noticed, the applications will take a bit of the computer resources. However, truth be told, you will not be using the machine for anything else during this time.

During installation, users will have the opportunity to select the application that they need to install from the package. In addition, they will be asked if they want a free Norton Security Scan, a step that they can skip by un-marking the option. Other than that, the installation is smooth and takes about a minute or two. At the end of the installation you will be redirected to a web page where you can download several movie trailers.

Interface

The overall interface of the player is sharp, elegant and exquisite. In the main menu commands, you have the possibility to burn files onto DVD or transfer the videos onto the TV, Playstation, DVD player or Blu-Ray player. The ability to transfer the streaming videos onto other devices is also found in the smaller screen on the right of the interface.

Pros

With the DivX player, you can be sure that you will enjoy the clearest streaming you have ever experienced. In addition, this is among the few software applications that allow you to play truly HD media files. The converter application is just as great, as seen in our tests and according to users’ testimonials, it compresses and converts files without diminishing the quality of their rendering.

Cons

Some users have stated that the converter from the package takes too long at times although we have not encountered this issue. Due to the limited number of complaints registered, this guide believes that the problem arose from the quality of the files that needed conversion.

Alternatives

Alternative programs include VLC and QuickTime.

Conclusion

A video player for both online and offline streaming, the latest codec pack and all the codecs that you will ever need to watch HD media files and a potent file converter. All of them in a free software package make this a definite bargain!

Requirements: Pentium IV 2.8Ghz or equivalent for HD H.264 and *64MB of video ram, 1280x720 display in 24-bit colo
