DivX Beta 2 released

DivX Labs has released DivX Player Beta 2 for Mac, bringing native support for Intel Macs to the decode-only DivX codec. The latest revision offers drag-and-drop support for movies onto the player icon, the ability to dim the player window along with the Desktop Dimmer, and improved control of playback via the keyboard. Additional improvements to DivX include a hidden cursor during full screen playback; currently-open movies are selectable from the players contextual menu; the scrubber/playhead/indicator is updated properly at all times; the screen saver will not activate during movie playback; users can adjust the volume and dimmer when no movie is open; the player window unfades when a movie finishes playing, and after closing the player window users can re-open it from the file menu. DivX Beta 2 for Mac requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later, and is available for download from the DivX Labs Web page.
