What is a DivX file?

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.

 

How to open a DivX file?

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.

What is a WMV (Windows Media Video) file?

Windows Media Video (WMV) is a common and widely supported video format. It compresses the file size with a codec resulting in an easy-to-manage file that maintains the quality of the video. A digital container format, called Advanced Systems Format (ASF), often encapsulates WMV files.

 

How to open a WMV file?

Most media players can open and read WMV (and ASF) files. The best player for opening a WMV file is Microsoft Windows Media Player. Microsoft developed WMV and ASF, and many videos online today are WMV files. VLC media player is another reliable option, which can play multimedia files across several platforms.

 

WMV is also easy to convert to other video file types. However, keep in mind that the conversion process might cause picture quality to decrease. If a conversion is needed, then HandBrake is a free and open-source tool for converting WMV files.
