Convert DIVX to MOV 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.

Apple QuickTime (MOV) is a container that can hold various types of multimedia files, including 3D and virtual reality (VR). It is known for being useful for saving multimedia files to a user’s device. One of its defining features is that it stores data in movie “atoms” and “tracks” that makes highly-specific editing of the files possible.
By default, a MOV file opens with QuickTime. If the MOV file is Version 2.0 or earlier, then it can open with Windows Media Player, but more-recent versions will not open in this player. If unable to open a MOV file with QuickTime, then use VLC media player, which works across many platforms, including mobile.
Note that two other file types also use the MOV extension. They are AutoCAD AutoFlix and ROSE Online. These file types are unrelated, with one being obsolete and the other related to an online game. Apple did not develop these technologies and they do not open in QuickTime.
