DivX for Mac 6.5

DivX today announced the release of DivX for Mac 6.5, which includes the first release of an official DivX for Mac player. It provides Mac users with free full-screen playback of high-quality DivX videos on a desktop or through a browser and offers a number of easy-to use features that improve the viewing experience, including a desktop dimmer, mouse gesture controls, window fade-out and more. Unlike other Mac video solutions, DivX for Mac 6.5 can also easily convert movies into DivX format for playback on over 35 million DivX Certified DVD players, portable media players and other devices available from global retailers. The DivX Converter also outputs video files and the necessary html code to embed those movies into websites for use with the DivX Web Player.

"Our DivX for Mac team has done a great job on this release," said Darrius Thompson, Co-founder and CXO, Community and Internet, of DivX, Inc. "The new player is elegant and very easy to use, while at the same time offering the kind of high-quality, cinematic experience that Mac users expect from video products. And the DivX Converter for Mac makes it very easy for anyone to create a high quality DivX file that can be played back on millions of DVD players and portable devices from wide variety of brands, rather than limiting playback to a computer or one kind of portable device."

DivX for Mac 6.5 includes the DivX Converter for Mac, a lightweight, drag-and-drop application that enables users to create high-quality DivX videos from a variety of sources in one easy step. The release also includes the DivX 6 codec for Mac, a QuickTime plug-in that lets Mac users easily playback and export to DivX video from any QuickTime-based application.

DivX for Mac 6.5 is compatible with Quicktime 7 and Mac OS X 10.3.9. The full version of DivX for Mac 6.5 is available for download on DivX.com for $20. A free trial version includes a 15-day trial of the DivX Converter and a 6-month trial of DivX Codec for Mac with Pro features. The ability to play back DivX videos does not expire at any time, according to he company. The previous release, DivX 5.2.1, is not compatible with Mac OS 10.4 or QuickTime 7.
