Attention aux utilisateurs de EYETV : cette nouvelle version supprime le module "Divx Avi" qui permettait l'export d'un enregistrement EyeTv vers ce format.
Heureusement, j'ai pu retrouver un lien pour revenir à la version précédente.
Maintenant, je ne bouge plus !

Gee, what a load of crap this installer would like to put inside my Mac.

May be I am missing something, but DivX is readable / playable perfectly by Perian, my favorite QuickTime extension. So in my opinion any DivX extension is useless - especially if it is displaying a logo in the lower right corner to sell its application.

But I would disagree to people forcing 64 bit: QuickTime is only available with 32 bit, and as long as there is no alternative, and (with Apple supporting only AV Foundation now which is 64 bit and useless) there is no alternative in my opinion... who cares about 64 bit if it forcing me to convert videos before enjoining them?

Perian is dead.


martinb2, there are a couple problems with your otherwise appreciated post.

The first problem is that Perian, although it still works fine for now, has ended development. It's abandonware.

The second problem is that QuickTime 10.1 is now 100% 64-bit, including the provided components. I should know. I've been ranting at Apple for years to make it so. I think you're referring to QuickTime Player and QuickTime Pro 7.6.6, which inexplicably Apple will never be making 64-bit.

We are fortunate that OS X easily supports both 32-bit and 64-bit code, unlike Windows. So I can see your point. However, we ARE talking about video production, which is one of the most RAM and CPU process demanding uses for computers. Why WOULDN'T DivX software ALL be 64-bit?

There is no sane excuse for 32-bit DivX apart from the fact that the Windows platform continues to …DRAG… its feet going 64-bit. Therefore, there remains just about zero incentive to bother coding 64-bit Windows applications. Apparently that translates into the DivX folks not bothering to do anything 32-bit with the Mac versions. And of course that points out, once again, how little they actually care about the Mac platform. My response, once again, is: So why should we care about you, DivX?


*SNAP* Xenedar! You were writing your comment EXACTLY when I was writing mine. You must be my clone. ;-)

So what's DivX up to this time? Here's a quick evaluation:

1) 32-bit. Still. Unforgivable. Both DivX Converter and DivX Player. What is wrong with these people?

- NO THANK YOU! Macs went 64-bit in 2006, bitches!

2) When you run DivX Player, it phones home to:
dart.I.doubleclick.net on TCP port 80 via http.

- NO THANK YOU! I don't wish to be surveilled by DoubleClick, bitches!

3) When you run the installer:

"Set my default search and home page for Safari, Firefox and Chrome to Conduit Search powered by Bing."

- NO THANK YOU! I run a Mac, bitches!

4) The QuickTime components are updated to:
- A) DivX Decoder v6.8.4.3
- B) DivX Encoder v6.8.3.5

5) The DivX Web Player.plugin is updated to v3.0.1.5.

6) The installer offers the DivX HEVC Plug-in:

"• New DivX HEVC profiles supported in DivX Converter, Player and Web Player
• Create DivX HEVC videos at file sizes smaller than H.264
• Watch DivX HEVC videos on any computer and your favorite browser
√ Get the free DivX HEVC Plug-in to experience the latest video standard for quality and compression"

A couple hevc.plist files are installed. But where's the 'plugin'? I never found it.

7) A pile of stuff is put here:
/Library/Application Support/DivX/

8) Here is the ReadMe you can only read from inside the Installer, gee thanks, bitches:

Oh, and I forgot:

9) Two Launch Agents are installed in /Library/Launch Agents/
- com.divx.dms.agent.plis
- com.divx.update.agent.plist

AND: I disabled the whole mess. If by chance I ever run into anything DivX on the planet, I have the stuff ready to re-enable just in case. I'm not holding my breath.

I usually don't +1 such a review... unfortunately it's a perfect description.


Sorry, I have no words ...

Despite the hostility here... heres my view:

1. The fact that Divx is openly supporting H.265 (HEVC) is a very good thing and an important milestone. I'm going to be extensively testing out film compression using this!
2. Well done Divx for pulling their finger out on this one.

1. Cut the crap out of the installation (Bing!!??) this is a Mac not a PC, don't impose changing my MacOS settings or installing stupid f***ing toolbars and s**t!)
2. Player is still crap
3. Why is this software 32bit? What century do you think this is!? You can't even buy 32bit only machines anymore so don't give me that excuse (or try to tell me its because it doesn't require more than 4Gb of RAM)! We're talking film compression/ decompression, every recourse counts. Stop dawdling and compile this in 64bit.

If you too uninstall this crapware (via the kindly provided Uninstaller), be sure to do a Spotlight search in BOTH your /Library/ folder AND your ~/Library/ folder for leftovers. I found a SLEW of DivX .plist files polluting my library folders, including one nasty file still residing in one of the Launch folders, which is an evil thing to do. Dump Them All!

Oh and talking about evil: While the uninstaller is running, it attempts to phone home to the DivX site to look for updates. Can you imagine? It wants to UPDATE your installation as you are uninstalling it.

WHY did I uninstall the DivX crapware? Because this recent 'Conduit' infliction garbage during installation is The Last Straw. I've had enough. I don't ever run into DivX video on the Internet any more. I don't care about DivX video any more. May DivX rot and die. I think we already have more than enough effective video formats without having to bother with this unimportant format family.

However, I am keeping a copy of the current installer around for just-in-case. But I highly suspect I'll never need it and will have forgotten why I ever bothered to keep it.

After reading the review/commentary/warning below, I am hesitant to install this software. Can anyone provide some information about this new version 10?

Version 10.0.0

Unless you can think of a compelling reason to install DivX, DON'T. Read my uninstallation notes above to make sure you've actually gotten rid of ALL of it.


Thanks for the warning, I won't install this.

Michael382429 Member IconReview+11

Do NOT install DIVX for Mac. The new updates install malware on your computer which set ALL of your browsers - Chrome, Firefox, Safari - to use a search service called 'conduit' which redirects, of course, to Bing. It does NOT simply allow you to re-set up your home pages and search engines. It has a background process which again TAKES OVER YOUR BROWSER SETTINGS even after you have restored them! Instead of installing this software (which is trying to stop you from using Google), you should remove Bing from your search engines and stop using all Microsoft products. Obviously, no one redirects people to Bing without getting paid for it. You'll spent quite a while removing this nasty browser hijacker and you'll regret this download!

Version 9.1.3

Edit: It appears that after your remove the 'Conduit' home page and engine, the 2nd stage software responsible for re-setting the search and default pages to 'Conduit' is a Chrome extension. So, for Safari and Firefox, a single removal of the offending search pages and 'Conduit' search engine is enough. For Chrome, you have to additionally remove the conduit extension. BE WARNED: The conduit extension has access to all of your cookies and data on every site, and could easily send all of that data to a 3rd party. It's better to just not download this. Obviously, I've also uninstalled all DIVX plugins because they can no longer be trusted.


These DivX people are shameless. Anything for a buck.

And who gives a rat's about DivX video these days? Just avoid this crap unless you ABSOLUTELY require it. Maybe download the Installer and have it at the ready. But BEWARE the extra CRAPWARE these nasty installers inflict on your system. They're out to surveil you on the net. Not a good thing.


Sorry you guys had to go through this. I hate having encounters with software like this.

More important, THANK YOU for sharing and warning the rest of us.
