Files that contain the .divx file extension are high-quality video codec files that have been compressed for the purpose of distributing digital videos via the Internet.
When a video file is saved in .divx format, the video is compressed so that it can be distributed more easily due to a smaller file size. Although the file size of the video becomes smaller when it is put in the DIVX file format, there is very little loss to the picture quality of the video that the file contains. This is why the DIVX file format is one of the preferred formats for online video distribution and in P2P file-sharing networks.
DivX files can be run on Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems.
