Div DVD Home Video Movies
There are two meanings of the word "Divx". The original was used to describe a proposed encrypted video format and rental scheme which required phone lines. This initiative died in 1999. This is the topic of this category only. More recently, DivX (note capitalization) was the name used to describe a highly compressed video standard based on the MPEG-4 standard. It is unrelated to the old Divx rental scheme.
