Why do you use DivX®?

When this page was launched, DivX® was a good compromise between acceptable quality and not too large a file size. However, presently, the format used for videos on this website is changed from 'divX' to 'mp4' (H.264, AAC).

You either need a DivX® player or a DivX® codec installed. Beside the DivX® page, there are many other pages easily found which can assisst you. A not complete collection of links related to this topic can be found here.
