DivX and avi fileformat was 'the' codec to use years back for movies. Compared to h264 in a Matroska fileformat it is old and has poor quality. Not to speak about the dreadful licenses.Avoid when possible.

Had its day in the Snow Leopard era. In the modern era there is so much more choice than this bug-ridden trash.

I was greatly disappointed when the installer asked to install MacKeeper as well as DivX. I will delete this app from my Mac.

Don't install this. It's buggy, locks up your system with Sit & Spin mode, preventing you from Force Quitting it. It's garbage (IMHO of course). If you have it installed, throw it in the trash and use VLC instead.

DivX ones your main video codec inside an AVI format. Now defunct, slow and never gets anywhere near H264. Even Windows users are leaving this codec in favour of H264.

For anyone who got messed over by the shameful CONDUIT adware infestation, part of the DivX 10.1 installer, here are some instructions for removing it, provided by my colleague Thomas Reed: http://www.thesafemac.com/arg-conduit/ Thomas also offers an Adware Removal Guide and Removal Tool: http://www.thesafemac.com/arg/ Thankfully, adware installation was removed from the DivX 10.2 installer.

Thank You Derekcurrie! I always look for your reviews on MacUpdate because they're honest Insightful and very accurate 99.999% of the time. I can't believe MacUpdate still offers this VirusWare as a download!!

Technically, this isn't VirusWare. It's a simple Installer than has an upsell offer in it. "Pay Per Install" is becoming the norm in the software industry right now. In fact, the biggest sites like Download.com wrap all app listings on their site with Installers that offer the option to install another Mac app. It is certainly not Malware or Virusware or anything remotely similar.

I disagree Joel. And apparently the DivX people disagree as well. They were shamed into removing this adware garbage in all further versions of DivX. Since this mess, there have been several adware installation attacks on the Mac platform, necessitating the extremely successful program Adware Medic from my colleague Thomas Reed. It has since been folded into Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and Thomas now heads Mac software at Malwarebytes. Also note how Malwarebytes managed to call anti-malware programs what they really are: Anti-Malware. Seeing as there are NO actual viruses for Mac, only other forms of malware, it is entirely wrong to say 'VirusWare'. A virus is only one kind of malware. Adware is another kind of malware, whether marketing morons who nefariously infest the stuff onto Macs like that term or not.

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 !

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?

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?

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: ~~~~~~~ DivX 10.0.1 An all-in-one solution to play, create and stream high quality DivX HEVC video up to 1080p HD, DivX 10 delivers the latest video technology to users for free.

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.

Thank you for your post, I was installing this when the update popped up and then remembering how annoying this software was and the things I ended up turning off because other players handled things better. It also seemed like it installed a bunch of extra unneeded stuff and just felt a bit creepy like the default search engine thing. Generally when there is not drag and drop installs or when they take a while to launch the first time run I get suspicious on a Mac.

I stopped the install and will remove anything DivX.
