DivX launches Stage6

DivX has released Stage6, a video upload service designed to compete with current popular sites such as YouTube. While a number of sites already support the DivX namesake codec, Stage6 keeps uploads intact rather than downgrading them to Flash or another video format, according to Electronista. Users have the option of integrating DRM into work to secure videos from copying outside of initial browser downloads. The company hopes to offer movies as well as TV shows on a download-to-own basis as a long-term strategy, but has thus far published no major partners. Additionally, Apple recently secured a critical patent that may enable the Cupertino-based company to collect royalties from all music and video download sites, which would hamper efforts by companies such as DivX.
