Is there any difference between the free divx codec, and the pro codec as far as the viewing/decoding side?

Thanks

Im pretty sure that the pro package just comes with a full player and stuff.
I think the codec is the same, and im pretty sure you dont need the pro package.

divx's decoder and encoder can't compare to the likes of ffdshow and xvid respectively. the past year or so has seen it come close, but divx is still commercial while the other two are open source & free :)

While what you say is true... my experience is playing an xvid with ac3 audio on a divx certified dvd player will fail in one way or another every single time. On the other hand playing an actual divx file on a divx certified player has never failed at all.

that is likely because of incorrect settings. things like qpel and GMC are incompatible with current mpeg4 capable players.

other than that, some players are pickier than others, you may need to change the fourcc to DX50.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
