One word: ENCODER. You asked for it, and now you have it. This beta release includes, for the first time anywhere, a bonafide DivX video encoder on Mac OS. We've also included new PowerPC G4 and G3 optimizations and a DivX Decoder Configuration application (which serves the same purpose as its Windows cousin). The DivX Validator application is largely unchanged in this release.This version includes encoding features comparable to the DivX Pro product on Windows. Once installed, you will have 15 days to trial the software. After the 15 days, the software will be disabled (although you can continue to decode video), and you should visit for details on a final product release.If you don't know how to encode video on Mac OS, find someone who does and ask them for help. Suffice you say, you'll need to use the DivX encoder in conjunction with an application that encodes video. QuickTime Pro will also do the trick.This version also includes an MPEG 1 Layer 3 encoder, known as the "DivX MP3 Encoder". The encoder is implemented as a QuickTime audio codec component, and can be configured through the DivX video export options dialog.
