DivX 5.2.1 et Dr. DivX 1.0.6

Le célèbre codec DivX passe à sa version 5.2.1. Compatible avec le SP2 de Windows, ce dernier est fourni avec la dernière version du lecteur DivX Player 2.5.5.

Rapellons que le codec est disponible en 2 versions : Pro et Free. La première, payante, permet une meilleure qualité de compression et de lecture, et est fourni sans espions (spyware). Pour la version Free, donc gratuite, vous devrez vous contentez de tous les espions installés en même temps que celui-ci…

Par ailleurs, Dr. DivX, logiciel qui permet la compression de vos fichiers AVI ou autres au format DivX, sort dans sa version finale estampillée 1.0.6.

Coté nouveauté, quelques corrections de bugs et une compatibilité total avec le SP2.
