H.264 is a digital video compression standard that uses half the space of MPEG-2 (the DVD standard) to deliver the same quality video.
H.264 is a popular standard for high definition digital video, and for good reason. A codec based on the H.264 standard compresses video to roughly half the space of MPEG-2 (the DVD standard) to deliver the same high-quality video. This means you can enjoy HD video without sacrificing speed or performance. DivX Plus video is based on the H.264 standard, which boasts efficient encoding of HD video and powerful features that enable the delivery of high-quality video at very low data rates. Using DivX Converter, you can create stunning DivX Plus HD video (H.264 video in an MKV container).
