For this week's post, I bring you a free copy of the DivX Create software bundle:
The bundle includes the DivX Player, DivX Pro 6 codec and DivX Converter, so you can create your own DivX format movies. Suggested retail price = $19.99. Is it that big a deal? Probably not, but it is free!
UPDATE 2: The offer is now expired. If you tried to take advantage of the offer but didn't get a serial number, be patient. You may yet get one. Apparently their mail server got bogged down with the load and they are experiencing delays in sending all the serial numbers.
The page is still accessible as I write this (Thursday, September 29, 9:20 AM EST), and it looks like it still works. Perhaps the offer is still on. However, I am out of junk email addresses and don't want to bother creating another, so I can't verify that it still works. If you have a throw-away email address, give it a try and see.
I just read the fine print (doh!) and saw that this free download does not
include the MPEG2/DVD converter plug-in. If you want that you have to purchase it separately for $9.99. I knew there had to be a catch!
New words to live by: You get what you pay for. Or, rather, you don't get what you don't pay for. Oh well, at least it is/was free.
