Divx media has always been pretty cool, easy to use but never took off in the tangilble media/ entertainment market. Remember the horrible idea of requiring people to buy discs, and only allowing the consumer to watch it 5 times?
Anyways, back on point, “X Software has created a unique software product,” said DivX’s Chief Operations Officer Kevin Hell. “Video Vault allows consumers to import, convert, and organise their video library using high-quality, highly compressed DivX technology and export those videos back on a wide variety of devices including DivX Certified DVD players, Portable Video Players, Wireless Media Servers and more.”
Why would you use this? Well, if you happen to have any movies, clips, etc that you want to take off of your harddrive and save them on the web, but the best part seems to be making it stream with a multitude of different devices. Will plugin’s be an issue watching your childs first softball game on your PDA? Well, they ‘ ensure compatibility with DivX Certified devices”
Sounds cool. Good for traveling salesmen that miss out on a lot of movies at home, and require the significant other to upload the latest movie online for them to watch..Save’s some dough!
