DivX is the brand name of the world's most popular video compression technology. At its core, DivX is a codec (short for compression/decompression) - a piece of software that compresses video from virtually any source down to a size that is transportable over the Internet without reducing the original video's visual quality.

With DivX video technology, you can compress a DVD to a fraction of its original size. DivX video compression is so efficient you can fit the entire contents of a DVD on a regular data CD with virtually no loss in quality. Now you can take any digital video content, from home movies to your personal DVD collection and save it on CDs to share with friends or store it on your computer's hard drive without spending huge amounts on extra storage.
