After the beta version of this popular codec, the new stable version is finally here... This latest version is finally compatible with WinXP SP2 and includes installer option to enable generic MPEG-4 playback component...
DivX Networks announced that the following bugs are now fixed:
-A long pause which occurred after opening the codec configuration dialog
-A 1-pixel vertical wobble when de-interlacing source
-An issue where the codec could forget its 'registered' or '6 month trial' status
-A glitch where Pro features were still selectable, but unusable after trial expired
-The trial expired message to show every time a trials expires
-A rare crash that occurred with some types of content
-Black distortions which appeared during playback
-An issue where blocks were skipped when video contained multiple consecutive B-frames
-A stall that occurred with some media players during DivX playback or on exit
-An issue causing Explorer to run slowly when showing thumbnails of DivX files
-The Japanese Decoder Configuration to no longer show corrupt text
You should always remember that since 5.2 version, this codec also supports feedback mode which is now multithreaded, taking advantage of HyperThreaded or dual CPU for better efficiency ...
