Can I Safely Uninstall Any/all Of The Divx Programs That Were Installed By Roxio Creator 2012?

Question

I recently installed Roxio Creator 2012 on a Windows 7 computer and noticed that four DivX programs were installed with it (DivX Plus Codec Pack, DivX Plus Converter, DivX Plus Player, and DivX Plus Web Player). I try to minimize the number of programs I have installed on my computer and I don't have any interest in making/playing DivX video files. I am interested in Roxio Creator 2012 for the ability to make DVDs, edit photos, download web videos, and convert videos to MP4. Would it be safe to uninstall any/all of the DivX programs?

Hello,

 

I just uninstalled the DivX setup through the Programs and Features menu [Windows 7], and it has taken away all the DivX icons except the shortcut to the DivX movies folder.

You can delete both the shortcut and the folder, yourself.

Strangely enough,even though I uninstalled all four of the DivX Plus components, Video Copy & Convert still managed to convert a .divx file to MP4, and MyDVD still accepts a DivX AVI for input.

 

On the face of it, it seems safe to uninstall the DivX components. However I would mention:

-I'm not a Roxio employee or representative

-I haven't tested it extensively

-If uninstalling DivX Plus does break something that you feel is vital, you might have to do either a repair or else uninstall the rest of Creator 2012 and then reinstall it all to get yourself back to your present position.

 

Regards,

Brendon
