What is DivX

DivX file format with a .divx extension is a digital media format developed by DivX, Inc. It was developed to let its users watch and create qualitative videos in a fast and very convenient way. This format is rather popular, because it can significantly compress large videos still retaining their original image quality.

The DivX codec is one of the most popular MPEG-4 based codecs thanks to its quality and efficiency. Moreover there are so many DVD players that support DivX format available.

So why is DivX so popular in compressing the movies nowadays? For example a movie on a DVD of 4.7 GB of storage can be easily converted to DivX format of about 700 MB and stored on a CD. AC3 or MP3 audio formats are usually used along with DivX, thus providing high-quality audio with high-quality video.
