The other month when I was spouting my opinions about DivXs place in the future, devices and mp4 etc, I think I probably did underestimate the number of alternative hardware devices that are emerging that will support DivX. Ive really no idea how many 'media portals' of the itunes and recently announced creative variety there will eventually be, but if there are plenty then DIvX stands a better chance of getting its foot in the door.
Maybe the format chaos will continue for a lot longer than Id originally hoped. Oh well, the upside of this is that theres plenty of choice and plenty of deals to be made, with different hardawre manufacturers, codec reators and content providers coming together to make deals. On the MPEG-LA licensing front, when this videoblogging group had a brief look at the mpeg4 & h264 licenses that cover content creators/publishers some time ago, it seemed most videoblogs would be safe and free from paying fee's on several levels, mostly audience size and length of video material. I dont think theres many people who want to be cynical about the DivX content licensing stuff, they just want to know exactly where they stand. Has it been clarified yet as per discussions months ago? Cheers Steve of Elbows --- In email@example.com, "JV" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > > All sorts of things play DivX. VLC, ffmpeg.
