DivX 6 Update


miketall

Question

Does anyone know how updates to DivX 6 work, relative to Toast 7? I never purchased DivX 6, but it looks to have been included with the package when I bought Toast 7. And I can see where I can export using DivX 6 with Toast 7.

 

I see that their is an update to DivX 6 --> 6.5 today. Can I download this update? Or must I wait for Toast 7 to come out with their next update?

 

Also, can I use the DivX 6 included with Toast in any other application - i.e. EyeTV2? Right now I see only DivX5 in my EyeTV2 export options.

 

Thanks for any help.

I've got EyeTV and Toast running on a MacBook and I installed the DivX updated codec (6.5.1) which I believe allows EyeTV to export to DivX format but EyeTV will only pick up the Toast installed codec (6.0.5).

 

Is there no way to upgrade the Toast DivX codec? Or failing that, rip it out all together so at least my other programmes which use DivX will work?

Since the next update to Toast 7 is coming soon I'm waiting to see what Roxio includes with it.

With Toast 7.1, the version string in the Get Info window for /Library/QuickTime/Decoder.component says 6.0.0, and it's Universal now. The CFBundleLongVersionString key in the Info.plist file is DivX 6 Decoder Version 6.0.5, Divx, Inc. 2004 - 2006.

Can we get an official answer on this from someone in Roxio, please? What is the difference between Toast's version of DivX and the official, standalone version of DivX?

 

Which one should I have installed or are they both the same despite the different version numbers?
