The developers of DivX have been busy with Dr. DivX and have released a new version. The program is now available under the LGPL and will run on Linux, Mac OS X and Windows 2000/XP. However, the first beta version of Dr. DivX 2.0.0 only works on the Windows platform, but the expectation is that the other platforms will be available shortly. The following announcement was used to showcase the revamped doctor to the world:
Thanks for waiting; the Dr. will see you now. The Dr. has returned from his extended vacation and has reopened his practice. The Dr. apologizes to all those with video files he has not been able to help you convert in his absence. But before you get started please read all of the documentation as you will see…This is not the old Dr. DivX. This is something very new.
The new Dr. DivX 2.0 OSS Beta is available for testing and development. If you want to help us develop the new Dr. please grab the source code and check out what needs to be worked on. If you want to help us beta test this product please download it now and start testing.
Before you run the program and ask us questions please take a moment to read the how to manuals, the known issuesand the FAQs. Please submit feedback to the dr. DivX Forum.
