Apps: 3ivx Delta 4, DivX Doctor, Thoth...
Happy Machines has released 3ivx Delta 4 PR2, an update to its high-quality MPEG-4 codec that now offers "faster, better" compression and higher quality: "The 3ivx decoder plays back most MPEG-4 variants (including DivX 3,4 and 5, Apple MPEG-4, Philips MPEG-4 and XviD). The 3ivx decoder produces noticeably higher quality video than other decoders due to its high quality post-processing filters, and because of its core design and optimization maintains a record-breaking decode speed." It runs on Mac OS 8/9/X. [752KB]
