I have been running DIVX version 10 and when I installed Video Lab, it uninstalled and installed DIVX version 8. When I update back to version 10, DIVX video files are not recognized. I had to downgrade back to version 8. Does anyone know if you can run version 10?

What happens if you re-install Video Lab AFTER you update to DivX10?

Is there any particular advantage to DivX 10 over DivX 8?

What version of Video Lab are you running, Lippy58? [full name and version number please]

I'll try and get hold of a copy of it so we can get you an informed answer.

Brendon is in a different date/time zone, so let's wait and see if he was able to dig out that old copy ;)

I just purchased this software. Would you recommend upgrading? What would you recommend?

I think that my likely source is on his vacation, so a copy of 135B53V VideoLab isn't likely in the near future.

It looks as if this version sits somewhere between Creator 2011 which it is close to but which doesn't have all the DivX stuff, and Creator 2012 which does have the DivX stuff. I'm hoping that poking a stick at DivX in Creator 2012 might give me some useful results.

The faster we can get at this the better, so that if you need to return your software for refund you can do it quickly "in a timely manner". :)

Lippy, answer me these questions please, so I can see what's happening in there and also advise you if you need to upgrade.

what are you wanting to do with this software?
What program in Video Lab HD are you trying to do it with?
What is failing to recognize DivX files when you update to version 10?
Do you need DivX 10 rather than DivX 8 to do it?

Brendon

1. What are you wanting to do with this software?
I would like to be able to create DVD's directly with IVX file

2 What program in Video Lab HD are you trying to do it with?
See attached file. Using the Create DVD soft button

3. What is failing to recognize DIVX files when you update to version 10?
When you go to add files to be burned the DIXV files have an "X" through them and are not recognized

4. Do you need Divx 10 rather than DIVX 8 to do it?
No. I prefer DIVX 10 as it is a faster encoder for my video files. I like the feel of Version 10 better

Okay, I'll go hammer it around on my other system and see if I can make it behave. Back later today if all goes well.

'k, I'm back.

The news isn't good, I'm afraid. It appears to me that the Roxio DivX [version 8] is an OEM version of DivX that's built into MyDVD [Create DVDs] and other parts of the Roxio suite.

It seems to be hard-coded into the suite.The DivX 10 installer doesn't update Roxio's DivX, but instead installs the public version of DivX, breaking Roxio's DivX in the process.

I couldn't find a way of telling the Roxio suite to use DivX 10 instead of the Roxio version, and so .DivX files or .AVI files decoded by the DivX codec [dib; divx; dx50; iv32; iv50, etc] are barred in MyDVD once you install DivX 10.

If you just purchased this product and it isn't suitable for your requirements then you should return it asap for a refund.

As to upgrading, that poses a problem too. The latest, greatest Creator [Creator NXT 3] is using the very same 2008 version of DivX as you already have.
Sonic owned both Roxio and DivX so I would have thought they'd update Creator's DivX. What more can I say?

Brendon

Thanks for looking into this and confirming my suspicions. I'm going to keep this version of Video Lab and update to DIVX 10. I can always use Nero to burn DIVX files, although that process takes much longer.

Thanks again.
