|Revolutionize your movie-watching experience with DivX Codec|
There are so many codecs available these days, that you are hard-pressed to choose just one. So, you often end up downloading multiple codecs; which is not a problem, but you can save a lot of disk space if you choose just one codec that will fulfil all your video needs. And this brings us to the question of the hour – which codec should you get for an unmatched audio-visual experience? Without doubt, it is the DivX Codec.
For all those not-so-technologically-inclined persons who are reading this, a codec is a computer program or 'software', which encodes as well as decodes signals and streams of digital data. Why do you need it? Well, a lot of audio-visual players come bundled with their own codecs, but you know how sometimes, the video that you’ve just downloaded from the internet just refuses to play on any of your media-players? That's because the video is encoded in such a way that it requires a specific codec to decode them before its streams can be interpreted by your media-player. Only when you download the necessary codec will you be able to play that video through your media-player.
So why the DivX codec specifically? Aren't the other codecs you can get online any good? Sure they are, but in ways more than one, the DivX codec package is the first choice of many who are familiar with the comfort, ease, and efficiency that DivX affords. In case you've never even heard about DivX codecs before, here's some information you might want to know about the company and its products.
The digital media company DivX, Inc. provides high-quality media-player, codec, and video-ripping packages that make for an excellent audio-visual experience in the areas of not just computers, but also television, DVD players and mobile-devices. The popularity of DivX stems from its ability to compress video-segments of large sizes into smaller bits without compromising on a superior visual quality. While a lot of codecs promise you this and not all of them deliver, DivX is one media codec you cannot accuse of this. DivX is substantially ahead of a lot of its competitors, and not without good reason. Take, for example, DivX 6. It added an optional media container format, called ‘DivX Media Format' to the earlier version which had just a codec and a media player. The new format supports not just multiple video streams and audio tracks, but also allows for multiple subtitles. You can also add interactive menus, chapter points, et cetera, et cetera. Aside from having a partial backward compatibility with the files that have .avi extensions, the great thing about this is that multiple formats including .mpg and .qt or .mov can be played.
There are different codecs that DivX has developed for different operating systems and this has obviously been done for greater compatibility and a wider range of use.
All you need to do is to install the codec in your computer, depending on the operating system that you have and you are all set to go.
