I'll just give it a 2 since I haven't downloaded it.
Why 2, you may ask? Well, here we go then.
"The DivX 8 codec is the latest and greatest release of DivX, THE BEST COMPRESSION TECHNOLOGY for high-resolution movies."
THE BEST, you say? Well, looking at tests, XviD is better than this.
And it's absolutely free. That's already something.
But saying "The Best" is really marketing gimme-gimme, as x264, THE BEST OF THE BEST, outperforms this by a whole league.
And once again, is absolutely free.
Don't get DivX, there are much better alternatives. And free too.
And yes, I do know that x264 is AVC while DivX is ASP.
But they still say the best, while XviD - a free alternative, is better.

Ouch. Where to begin.
It's a big program, 46mb.
It took a long time to install.
I brought up VirtualDub, Virtualdub took a long time to load. It also took a long time to select the codec (locked up the computer for a bit each time I highlighted it in, they're doing something screwy there each time it's looked at).
I brought up a test video, tried to encode with it.
Then it crashed and brought up this message:
"Error Code 0x80044005"
Aaand it's a commercial codec, and they want money for their hard work ! Gimme gimme !
They're gonna have a long wait ! ☺
I'm running Win7/64-bit VirtualDub & tried TMPGenc Xpress, both crashed with it (and both programs took a LONG time to load too specifically because of DivX cause it's never acted like that before). All other codecs work fine.
I still recommend the top 3 codecs as #1 Google Video Codec, #2 XviD Codec and #3 Windows Media Video 9 Codec last.
Since this version of DivX actually slows down anything that even smells like it can play or edit an .AVI I must uninstall it to get the speed back on my computer, sad I know.
DivX Plus Software includes everything you need for a high-quality digital video experience including Converter, Player, Web Player and Codec Pack.
