Back in June, DivX offered a free version of DivX Pro for Windows and Mac which would normally cost $20.  They must be in the holiday mood because they’re once again offering it for free. All you need is a valid email address and you’ll be set to go.Remember, this is the Pro version which includes DivX Converter and DivX Pro Codec. Here’s a quick overview of the benefits that each provide:

  • DivX Converter
    • Drag-and-drop nearly any video format to create a high-quality, highly compressed DivX video
    • Merge and convert multiple videos into a single DivX file with an automatically generated menu
  • DivX Pro Codec
    • Higher performance, including multi-threaded support for better performance on all HyperThreaded, dual core and dual CPU (SMP) systems
    • More encoding options, including six carefully optimized encoding modes that balance visual quality and performance for virtually any application

Here’s the link that you’ll need to download DivX for Windows. This link also explains how the free holiday download will work. Essentially you’ll download the file, and then enter in your email address during the installation. Then you’ll receive an email with your serial number for DivX Pro. There’s also a Mac version, and the link for that download is here.

Thanks for the tip Mark J!
