What is a DIVX file
The DIVX file format is used to store high-definition and high-quality video files by compressing them to a fraction of their original size without any loss in quality. Making use of codecs, the files that can have up to a resolution of 1080 pixels are stored in MBs of space.
DIVX files are media containers that make use of audio as well as video codecs to facilitate the compression as well as the playback of the files stored in this format. The codecs that are used are of two types: the H.264/MPEG-4 AVC DivX Plus HD codec, and the regular MPEG-4 Part 2 DivX codec.
Here's a small, but not exhaustive list of programs that can open DIVX documents:
- Video LAN VLC Media Player
- DivX 7
- Microsoft Windows Media Player
- CyberLink PowerDVD 14
- Roxio Creator NXT Pro 2.
- Roxio Toast 12
- RealNetworks RealPlayer Cloud
