At one time, DivX Doctor was the preferred tool for DivX conversion, and its batch feature as simple as you could ever hope.

Recently, however, I've had little success converting any files. Instead, I'll view my files with VLCPlayer, rendering conversion unnecessary.

Have tried about 50 avi files with this app and everyone has failed giving an error message. Quicktime cannot open the resulting .mov file!

Never re-encode unless it's absolutely necessary. These days most AVI files can be played on VLC, so just go with that.

No, you're right... the links don't work, neither do the download links on the developer's page.

while both vlc player and mplayer support multiple codecs, they tend to be very buggy and have audio sync problems. although i don't use divx doctor to do it, i convert everything but windows media files to play in quicktime, which for me has rarely had any glitches.

Not recommended for the reason that it will corrupt some types of AVI files. And if your AVI has problems to begin with, this app will make it worse. Please, people. Refrain from changing a video source into another, less universal container. QuickTime Player may be great for QuickTime content, but it's really not suitable for AVI. Your best option is to use VLC, or MPlayer. The latter gives you more video filter controls and runs a lot better than QuickTime Player.

I dont get it? Why convert to QT format when there already are players out there that plays .avi without a problem. Audiolag and other stuff can be fixed without converting to .mov

Well personally i use to use this program so that Toast 6 (which uses QuickTime to decode/encode), could automatically convert and burn a DVD.

Quicktime won't play audio with any .avi's encoded with mp3, so without this program Toast would be unable to provide audio on the DVD.

I happily use MplayerX on my ibook when i just want to watch it.

Why to convert a .avi a in .mov file? This was a good solution before the launch of Mplayer o VLC, which are players much better that QuickTime, which is costly and slow

VLC and MPlayer don't work if you're trying to export a movie into, say, iMovie. (At least, I haven't had luck.) You may want to do that to make a DVD if your computer hardware is inferior to your DVD player and TV. It works specially well if your computer is not up to high definition and you still like the movie enough to want to make it into a normal quality DVD. DivX Doctor gives you something you can import into iMovie and play with.

Just used v 2.2 to convert a DivX .avi movie (700MB.) Nice and quick. The finished movie played haltingly in QuickTime 7.0.1, but smoothly in QuickTime 6.5.2. Lovely!
