My buddies at DivX have been absolutely tearing it up lately. Today’s news of a Sony deal is just one more log on an already toasty bonfire. Kudo’s to Steven Chien and crew.
To get a feel for the super nice quality of DivX visit Stage6.DivX.com… You’ll be glad you did.
This brings to mind all the QuickTime frustrations I had when I worked at Apple. The QuickTime team just couldn’t quite develop fast enough to satisfy the appetite for better, faster, smoother. Now that the file sizes are beginning to matter less… QuickTime is becoming (maybe already has become) irrelevant. Must admit I really, really like DivX’s solution.
