DivX Control Panel
What is DivX Control Panel?
DivX, first called DivX :-) (with the smiley to distinguish it from the DIVX system, a video rental scheme by Circuit City that required special hardware to function), is a line of software products by DivX Inc. Usually, when one talks of DivX, this is either to pertain to the DivX codec, which is used to play MPEG-4 Part 2 and H.264 MPEG-4 (the latter of which is the HD version) file format videos, and the DivX Plus Player, the proprietary media player of the company that supports a huge variety of video types from the outset. DivX later dropped the smiley from their products’ brand name and trademarked the word “DivX”, in time with the release of the first version, DivX 4.0.
The two main components of DivX are the player and the DivX codec. The DivX Plus Player is the means to watch high definition video on your computer, with a goodly amount of supported file formats out of the box. It is one of the best and most well-known media players in the industry, owing to the fact that the player uses the DivX codec natively.
Meanwhile, the DivX codec has the capability of compressing huge video files into more manageable chunks, which can then be read by a DivX-compatible device (such as modern DVD players) and computers that can decompress the video by use of the same codec.
