Dr. DivX 2.0.1 Beta 3: The Dr. is dead, long live the Dr.

He's back and he would like to banish memories of the past 3 months. So, let's get right to the details.

In case ye faithful weren't aware, there was a code rewrite of certain sections that we had to do for the project to move forward. As a side-effect, you will notice minor changes in the user interface. Also, not all the user interface languages have been completely translated yet, so you may see visual interface anomalies caused by this. Rest assured, as we get back to making regular releases, these "creases" will get ironed out.... read more

Dr. DivX 2.0.1 Beta 2: Updated to work with DivX 6.4 codec

As promised, the Dr. is back real quick with a build which supports the new DivX 6.4 codec. We managed to squeeze in a few audio bug fixes too.

Get the build here (http://labs.divx.com/node/27).

You know where (http://labs.divx.com/node/29) to go in case you run into problems with this beta build :-)

Dr. DivX 2.0.1 Beta 1: The Next Step

After a short working holiday, the Dr. is back.

In addition to sundry bug fixes, we've added support for AVISynth script files and MP3 Surround audio encoding. Make sure you've set your AC3/AAC/DTS dshow filter to output 5.1 channel audio if you want to take advantage of the latter feature.

In case you hadn't noticed, a new version of the DivX codec (http://labs.divx.com/node/248) is out. The Dr. doesn't take advantage of the new features available in this version. Expect a new Dr. build, probably next week, which supports DivX Codec 6.4.... read more

Dr.DivX RC3: The Return of the Release Candidate

The Dr. is almost ready to take his position at the head of the encode operation table. He's got his scrubs on and is on his way to the operation room. It's time to get another snapshot of the Dr.

Thank you for the feedback and bug reports.

The Dr. hasn't changed much from his RC2 days, but we did fix a few annoying bugs. The Changelog[http://labs.divx.com/node/218] is available in case you want to know what happened since RC2. ... read more

Dr.DivX Release Candidate 2: Two is better than One

If you found RC1 useful, you will probably find RC2 more than useful!

We didn't plan on adding features so close to the final release, but we were tired of cranking up the audio volume while playing back the Dr.'s encodes. So, the audio "boost" feature got an overhaul and after almost 3 years, the Dr. no longer needs fiddling with the audio decoder to get your downmixed 5.1 tracks to sound right :-)... read more

No more betas! Dr.DivX Release Candidate is out!

We are close to the final release. Not there yet, but close. A majority of users (well, the ones who took the survey anyway) have indicated that the Dr. deserves a promotion to "release candidate" stage. Who are we to disagree ;-)

Thanks for all the bug reports, they really helped us.

A lot of profile related features actually work now, so give it a go and tell us [http://community.divx.com/forum/forum.php?fid=33] what you think. For the complete list of changes, have a look at the version history[http://community.divx.com/labs/viewEntry.php?id=28].... read more
