DivX marked the introduction and rise to popularity of high-quality video compression standards based around H.264 and MPEG-4. DivX played an important role in propagating MPEG-4 derived standard as licences to not only PC video players but also to DTH TV, and importantly consumer video players with the introduction of DivX CD/DVDs where generic data-CDs holding the .avi files of the actual video could be played back just like standard VCDs and DVDs.

This paragraph is misleading.

I don't see how DivX helped get H.264 up and running... It wasn't until now (with DivX 7) that it even supports H.264 playback. In fact, for the longest time, DivX was considered as competition to H.264, since it was much faster at encoding/decoding video at the time... Now that H.264 is mature, though, DivX has been replaced in terms of quality and usefullnes... With big players like Apple, Sony, etc... behind H.264, it's now usable on almost all popular media players. DivX did not help make this happen, it just accepted the fact and joined the future of video encoding...

Could a DivX7 movie, encoded at 1080p, be possible on a DVD? ie. a regular DivX turns a 9GB dual layer DVD into a lower quality 700MB (CD size) version. But what about using, not 700MB, but 5GB (single) or 9GB (dual) DivX7 movie? We could SKIP bluray and get a higher quality than DVD on DVD? Yes, I know it wont be as good as BluRay, but it should be better than upscale DVD which IMO is pretty good. So a DivX7 movie on DVD would be cool. :pimp:

I'd buy a DivX7 DVD upscaler player immediately.

At 1080P no, though 720P on a dual layer DVD discs is possible but thats without any muti HD lossless sound tracks, only standard single DD/DTS 5.1 would fit.

well DivX 7 is late, and who needs it?
we got x264 and it rules the socks off anything, x264 even rivals high quality production encoders that movie studios uses

and best of all x264 is FREE and Open Sauce
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X264
http://www.videolan.org/developers/x264.html

the only thing i think DivX 7 is good for atm is that the standalone players like DVD players will support DivX 7 aka H.264/AVC aka x264

It's quite superior to those really... The studios can be lazy with the technology because at Blu-Ray bitrates even MPEG2 looks sexy.

The nice thing about DivX7 on DVD would be that it is cheap, (royalty free for players), on cheap tech, DVD, and would be a significant improvement in upscaled quality to upscaled MPEG2. ALSO, it would be region/drm free. Yippee! Sounds like a winner. I'd buy DivX7 DVDs.

interesting news, but not really anything for divx inc to brag about. x264 is THE codec for HD video. you can fit an entire blu-ray movie at 1080p on a 9 gig dvdr. and it plays wonderfully. divx7 just seems to be a little late to the party.

You can already do this using H.264 compression.
