Convert DIVX to FLAC online, for free.
DivX started as a codec and associated player, but the release of DivX 6 includes an optional media container called DivX Media Format (DMF). DMF supports chapters, captions, multiple subtitles (XSUB), menus, multiple audio tracks, multiple video streams, metadata (XTAG), and hardware players.
By default, DivX opens in DivX player, which is a free download that works with many different kinds of devices and operating systems (OS). VLC media player and Elmedia are also good choices for opening DivX files.
It is important to know that “DivX” is not the same as “DIVX,” which is an obsolete video rental system. In fact, the name of the DivX codec was originally written with a winking emoticon, as “DivX ;-)” that was intended to be a humorous reference to DIVX, which failed in the market.

Free Lossless Audio Codec (FLAC) is a file format that shrinks an audio file’s size, which, as the word “lossless” in the name implies, results in no loss in audio quality or original data. FLAC accomplishes this by using an algorithm that compresses the file to approximately 50 to 70 percent of its original size.
The default program for opening a FLAC file is VLC media player. Other details about FLAC include that it is unpatented, permits music reproduction, is compatible with Telephony Application Programming Interface (TAPI), and is not subject to digital rights management (DRM).
