DivX 7 released Last month we reported that DivX 7 was coming and the updated product has finally arrived.
From the official site: DivX® 7 for Windows is a free download that provides everything you need to enjoy high-quality digital videos on your computer, including HD H.264 (.mkv) videos with AAC audio and videos created using all previous versions of DivX technology. You can also play your DivX files (.divx, .avi) on millions of DivX Certified® devices today. Look for DivX Plus™ HD Certified devices later this year that will support playback of all DivX and DivX Plus files, as well as .mkv (H.264/AAC) videos from the Internet.

You can download the software here at AfterDawn: Divx 7 download

How can a dvd player output an mkv file? Isnt a dvd player 480? And most mkv are 720 and 1080? Plus it would be a pain to invest in dual layer DVDs to fit a high quality mkv. Who wants to play a 4.7 gb mkv file? Kind of defeats the purpose.
