    PS3 update to support DivX too

    The PS3 update we talked about a couple weeks ago is on its way and should be arriving in your big black box as soon as tomorrow. The readme describes the update as being released December 18th, and not only will it update the Blu-Ray firmware to v1.1, but it will add DivX and WMV support. I don’t think that means support for the cooler XviD and H.264 codecs/containers is forthcoming… Read More

    Xbox 360 Dashboard update confirms DivX support

    Just wanted to let everyone know that the Xbox 360 Fall Dashboard update definitely includes support for what are "often referred to as Xvid or DivX video files." I know it’s not earth-shattering news and  I know that most of you probably already know about this, but I just wanted to get it out in the open. I’m not trying to ruffle any feathers or rile anybody up. Read More

    More info on upcoming DivX hardware players

    HEXUS.tv has a pretty good one-on-one video with DivX co-founder Jerome Rota about his company’s upcoming foray into the connected video box realm, where it’ll compete with AppleTV and similar devices. As reported earlier, the difference with the DivX box will be that most of the horsepower will be provided by your network-connected PC whereas AppleTV and, say, Xbox 360 are… Read More

  • First Look: Hardware DivX Player Prototype

    First Look: Hardware DivX Player Prototype

    Ubergizmo got a chance to play with an in-development 720p networked media player built around the DivX platform. While they compared it to AppleTV, such a device seems more like an orange — it’s dependent upon a host PC, doesn’t have a hard drive, and doesn’t make use of content purchased from an iTunes-like store. All that aside, the device has a couple… Read More

  • Philips DCP850 Portable DVD Player Review

    Philips DCP850 Portable DVD Player Review

    Having traveled quite a bit in the last six months I really could have used a portable DVD player to drown out the roar of the engines, the terrible movie choices made by the airline, the crying baby two seats over, or the constant jibber-jabber from my girlfriend (just joking, M). While I haven’t had any flights during the review of the Philips DCP850, I have had a handful of train… Read More

    iRiver NV Portable GPS Navigator: Pretty on the Outside, Smart on the Inside

    The iRiver M10 that we spotted last week has bee made official and is now known as the iRiver NV. It’s a GPS receiver with a very LG Prada look about it (and a very LG enV name about it…). The 7-inch widescreen display trumps other GPS devices on the market. Built-in DMB support and out-of-the-box compatibility with popular video formats like Divx, Xvid and H.264 further help… Read More

    Want DivX Pro Mac for free? Of course you do, who doesn’t? Today is special for some reason because the folks at DivX have lost their collective minds. Head on over now and download Pro.

  • Hackers Hack Hacked Apple TV to Play DivX

    Hackers Hack Hacked Apple TV to Play DivX


    What if I told you that somewhere on this island there’s a very small box that can play DivX video? Clever clever hackers! Some clever folks have opened up their Apple TVs, taken out the hard drive, and installed an SSH client as well as some video playing codecs. The result? An Apple TV that plays DivX, albeit with some difficulty. They’ve also discovered that the device runs… Read More

  • Pentax Optio A30 Is Smokin'


    The Optio A30 from Pentax is a titillating piece of digital camera righteousness. Successor to the A20 (one of our favorite products from last year), the 10-megapixel digi features a 2.5-inch LCD and an intelligent zoom function that rivals the image clarity of an optical zoom. Shake Reduction is also implemented to steady that nervous twitch you have. If you’ve been looking for a… Read More

  • Hello Wii Video 9

    Wii Video 9 is a homebrew app for the Nintendo Wii that allows you to play videos on your console. The app converts video files like DivX and .avi into MPEGs, which you can then drop onto a SD Card, all you have to do after that is insert the card into your Wii, navigate to the content you want, and you’re ready to roll. You can download the app here, courtesy of Red Kawa. Watching videos… Read More

  • Dcube Wants You To DivX Your Own High-Def DVDs


    If you’re like us, and we know you are, you’re tired of the HD DVD vs. Blu-ray pissing match that’s making it too confusing and frustrating to get your hands on high-def DVDs to watch on that fancy boobtube of yours. Dcube, a Korean A/V company, has taken it upon itself to say “STFU” to both camps in favor of a BYO solution. Many people already (legally… Read More
