Convert DIVX to OGG 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.

Ogg Vorbis (OGG) is a file that uses Ogg Vorbis compression. OGG is a patent-free, royalty-free encoding scheme provided by the Xiph.Org Foundation. Like MP3, OGG files are renowned for their high quality. OGG files include metadata, as well as artist and track title information.
The default program to open an OGG file is VLC media player. Additionally, a great number of other programs can open OGG, such as Windows Media Player, RealPlayer, Winamp, Xine, UltraMixer, and others.
If in a pinch, you can simply open an OGG file in Google Drive, which is available on any computer or mobile device equipped with an internet browser. Be aware that Apple products do not support OGG.
