Free license of DivX Pro!

Don't forget to check out the tip posted earlier today.

DivX currently offers the paid version of DivX, DivX Pro free for a limited time.  It will let you encode video as DivX.  The format is very efficient and useful when you store a lot of videos on your hard drive.  It is unfortunately not compatible with many Apple devices such as Apple TV.  You can get your copy at:

Thanks for sharing the info! What's DivX's marketing strategy here? Is this an older version? Are they releasing another version soon? Just curious...

They already did this operation in the past, I'm right MacGeek? I think 4 months ago.

You can also use the XVID codec instead of DIVX, which is usually compatible. XVID is open source and always free, not just for a 'limited time'.

Hi there.

I'd like to know how to submit a tip, to which e-mail address to send it. I know a trick that I believe is very useful for those with not enough free HDD space for whatever it is they need.

I think I've asked this before but I've lost track of the post I did it in by now. Sorry if someone answered already.

It's never too much to congratulate the owner of this blog one more time. Daily reader here.

To email MacGeek, click on the email address link on the left hand side, or, use:

tips4mac@mac.com

which is the same one, just copy/pasted.

I downloaded the free version of DivX pro the last time it was offered. I've tried to use it several times, and I just don't get it (really, I consider myself pretty tech savvy, so I was a little surprised when I couldn't get mine to convert or do anything) I would love to see a post here or a link to something like "the ABC's of DivX" so how I can actually use it somewhere.
