Free DivX Pro licenses

DivX is giving away free DivX Pro licenses for both Mac and Windows systems through today only, enabling users to enter an email address to receive a serial number for the movie creation and player software while the Web browser is forwarded to a download link. DivX Pro for Mac is normally priced at $20, and allows users to create DivX videos as well as play them back. The pro edition includes the DivX converter, DivX Pro Codec, DivX Player, and DivX Web Player as opposed to the latter two items that come with DivX for Mac. DivX Pro for Mac requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later with QuickTime 7 or later.

    What You Get for Free

    Man, LittleSnitch went hyper-active when I ran this DivX for the first time. Would you believe DivX installed FIVE apps that wanted to make contact with some website?

    1. DivX Updater. OKay, I'll give em a little bit of slack on this one. They just want me to stay up to date.... right? But they should ASK first.

    2. DivX Player. Why does the player need to contact anyone? I'm not trying to stream in anything.

    3. Upgrade. This one I think only ran during the install process. Still, there is no reason why it needs to. At least no reason for MY benefit.

    4. Pingie. "Pingie"??? By it's name I'm assuming it is trying to ping some machine somewhere. But hey, this is a media player I'm running, not an FTP server, right? ..... RIGHT?!??!?!?!

    5. BannersApp. Well now this sounds more like why the DivX folks want to give me something for nuthin. And this is the nuthin. By its name I'm guessing I'm about to see advertisements in the least expected places. No thank you.

    For programs like this (i.e., free ones especially), LittleSnitch is your best friend.

    Thanks for the tipoff

    I'll still give it a try with Little Snitch keeping a watching brief :)
