The latest beta update to the DivX Web Player has just been released and brings with it a host of new features, including one that could help DivX carve up a slice of the web video market. The new feature, known as DivX HiQ™, allows you to switch the videos you watch on popular video websites like YouTube, Vimeo and Daily Motion, to a high quality DivX format. According to DivX, the videos will feature "fewer interruptions, smoother playback and more vivid colors". Flash have a solid hold on the web video market but after some serious criticism from Apple recently, as well as the emergence of HTML 5, Adobe might find Flash playing catchup for the first time in a while. The main new features of the beta release of DivX Plus Web Player are as follows: DivX HiQ™ – use DivX Plus Web Player on YouTube and more New Format Support – MP4 & MOV HTML5 <video> tag support DXVA Hardware acceleration For downloads, further information (and a URL that needs re-writing!) visit the DivX website here.
