Learn about the codecs, containers, formats and features that power your DivX® video experience.


H.264 is a popular standard for high definition digital video, and for good reason. A codec based on the H.264 standard compresses a digital video file so that it only uses half the space of MPEG-2 (the DVD standard), to deliver the same quality video. This means you can enjoy stunning HD video the way it was meant to be seen 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 Plus Converter, you can create stunning DivX Plus HD video (H.264 video wrapped in an MKV container).
