DivX 6.1.1 codec for Linux developers (Tux: We still love you!)

Filed under
Software

It's been a little while (ok.. 3 years Wink) since we last released a version of the DivX codec for Linux. Following our 6.1 major release for Windows back in December we've been busy fixing all the issues that have been reported to us in order to make 6.1.1 very stable. Now that work on 6.1.1 is complete, we have decided not only to release the Windows version, but a Linux version too.

DivX 6.1.1 codec for Linux is free and includes DivX Pro features.

What's new since DivX 5.0.5 for Linux?

Full Announcement.

In fact, Tim Cook couldn't stop talking about "switchers" — people switching from Android to the iPhone — during the company's most recent earnings call in April. Read more
