Oct 26, 2004 - Hollywood Movie Studios to Offer Movie Downloads
DivXNetworks says it's currently close to a deal that could see two major movie
studios announce support for its technology by the end of the year. The DivX®
format, which so far has been more commonly associated with the distribution of
free movies online, would be used in planned Internet video-on-demand (VOD)
services allowing consumers to download movies directly from the Internet instead
of going through video stores or cable/television networks. According to DivX
President Shahi Ghaman, they also expect to release a new version of their DivX®
software by the end of the year. The upgrade will offer 33% better compression
than H.264, the latest video compression technology approved for use in the

Jul 31, 2004 - DivX® in 20 Million Consumer Electronics Devices
DivXNetworks has been working closely with consumer electronics manufacturers
for quite some time to add support for DivX® playback in more DVD players
and other equipment that is sold in retail. So far they've sold about 2 million
such devices, but reckon they'll sell another 18 million by the end of this
year. The company started out selling their codec to create and play DivX
movie downloads, then interested a few smaller consumer electronics firms and
integrated circuit manufacturers, and now virtually all the major consumer
electronics companies are coming out with products that support the DivX® format. The list
of companies includes Philips, Panasonic, Pioneer, Toshiba, Thomson and JVC.

Jul 15, 2004 - DivX® Codec and DivX® Player v5.2 Released
DivXNetworks has just released a new version of their popular DivX® software,
which adds support for three new languages (German, French, and Japanese).

quality and compression of the "Standard" mode, but offers better performance.
This mode makes it possible to capture live video and encode it in real-time
directly to disk without huge file sizes. Other improvements include improved
generic MPEG-4 support, a new bitrate calculator, as well as various bug fixes
and optimizations. We offer free downloads of all the codecs.

May 14, 2003 - New Movies Targetted as Consumers Download Movies
The Matrix Reloaded still hasn't premiered in theaters, but the movie is
already available for people to download online. The movie was first seen
online this morning and another version of the movie download surfaced later
in the day. This is not the first time that movies have become available as
free movie downloads before they have been released in theaters. Last year
we saw this happen to new movies such as Star Wars and Spider-Man. The
pre-release of free movies online has become a growing concern for Hollywood
studios, even if to date the trend has shown little indication that
free movie downloads are undermining box office revenues.

Apr 24, 2003 - DivX® Codec and DivX® Player v5.0.5 Released
Once again it's time for a new version of the DivX® codec and DivX® player.
The focus of this release appears to have been on fixing bugs and making the
codec more stable rather then adding new features. A lot of CLI problems have
been resolved as well as a lot of minor encoding related bugs. The most notable
improvement has been made to the rate control, which should be a lot faster and
produce more consistent results. This version should hopefully fix most of the
encoding related problems that people have experienced. You can download the
free version of the DivX codec
directly from our web site.

months appears to have been on making sure that the format is ready to be
implemented in consumer electronics devices. These efforts will hopefully
result in a wide range of DivX® Certified hardware devices able to play
DivX movie downloads being released this year. The new version of the codec
contains the usual bug fixes as well as new features to further improve the
video quality. The post-processing algorithm has also been further improved
to make playback of movies look even better. Now go download the codec!

May 27, 2002 - Star Wars and Spider-Man Movie Downloads Hit the Net
While movie downloads usually appear online quite fast, recently people have
been able to download movies online even before the movies have been released
in movie theaters. Recent examples of this include the new Star Wars movie along
with the Spider-Man movie. Copies of the Spider-Man movie were available a day
before its theatrical release and similarly copies of the new Star Wars movie
were circulating online more than a week before its theatrical release. According
to the MPAA, new movies are typically available online as free movie downloads
within 24 hours of their debut in theaters. As more and more consumers get access
to high-speed Internet connections downloading free movies will become easier and
provide for higher quality movie downloads.

Mar 21, 2002 - xXx Movie Trailer Available as Free Download
Sony Pictures just released the movie trailer for their new movie xXx as a
free download at DivX.com, and it's the first time that a major Hollywood movie
studio has released a movie download in the DivX® format. This clearly shows that
even the movie studios are impressed the high quality of the format, but whether
this means that the movie studios have plans to release new movies as movie
downloads remains to be seen. However, DivXNetworks continuing work with the
movie studios seems to be paying off, so we can only hope that it won't take
long until we'll be able to download movies legally directly from the net.
