Introducing DivX HiQ - An Alternative to Flash on Popular Video Sites
We've been busy working on DivX Plus Web Player over the last few months, and we've made progress on a ton of new features that we're excited to share with you. Our favorite new feature is called DivX HiQ, and it helps boost web video performance on your favorite video sites like YouTube, Vimeo and DailyMotion by using DivX Plus Web Player instead of the native video player. DivX HiQ is only one of the new things we're rolling out in this Beta release, so check it out for yourself on DivX Labs.
Download the new DivX Plus Web Player v2.1 Beta for Windows.
DivX HiQ: Higher Quality Web Video, One Click at a Time
DivX HiQ boosts web video playback performance by switching to DivX Plus Web Player instead of the lower performance native players on popular video sites like YouTube, Vimeo and DailyMotion. Check out the full list of supported sites on DivX Labs.
After installation the "DivX HiQ" button will appear beneath a supported site's player
(Here is how it looks on YouTube).
New Formats: Native MP4 and MOV Support
In addition to DivX (.divx, .avi) and DivX Plus (.mkv) video formats, DivX Plus Web Player 2.1 Beta now includes native support for MP4 and MOV videos.
HTML5 <VIDEO> Tag Support
Our new HTML5 implementation makes it easy to embed the DivX Plus Web Player elegantly with the new <VIDEO> tag for uniform .divx, .avi, .mkv, .mp4 and .mov support across multiple browsers. Check out our HTML5 demo to learn more.
DXVA Hardware Acceleration
The DivX Plus Web Player 2.1 Beta now supports DXVA hardware acceleration, so you can offload all of your H.264 video decoding to your GPU.
