Dr. DivX Saves The Day


Those who’ve been around ZNF since my early TiVoToGo tutorial days should remember my fondness for the Dr. DivX video conversion utility. I’m not sure what led DivX to kill the original app, but every now and then I do find a use for the re-released open source version.

At work, we’re hooking up with Simply Wireless in the DC region and we’ve apparently had a difficult time getting video running on some inherited kiosks. I offered to swing by and check out the gear since I’m local… My intention had been to feed some suggestions to the folks heading up this initiative, but a quick transcode of two unidentified MPEG variants and a WMV file using Dr. DivX was all it took to enable video playback. Do I get the rest of the day off?
