Not yet ready for place-shift video streaming but you have a bunch of DivX encoded movies on your HDD? Then it's time to download DivX new mobile player which was
just released and which is called "DivX Mobile". Beside supporting Symbian S60
and UIQ, the new DivX Mobile player also supports Windows Mobile in all its
flavors - from Windows Mobile 2003 and Second Edition Pocket PCs up to Windows
Mobile 5.0 as well as Windows Mobile 6.0 (including Classic, Professional and
Standard devices). DivX Mobile Player will try to play any video on any device,
but playback performance will depend on the phone's processor speed (DivX
recommends 200 MHz or faster).
The application will drop video frames as needed during playback which means
it won't achieve 30 fps for all bitrates and for best playback results DivX
recommends to convert videos to DivX at 24 or 30 fps at 320x240 resolution with
300 Kbps video and 128 Kbps stereo audio.
The free download requires a free DivX account and you can either download
the .exe to install the DivX Mobile player from your PC or the .cab file to
install it straight from your device.
By the way - if you are going to purchase a new
O2 Xda comet
soon, you don't need to install DivX Mobile. The Xda comet is one of the few (if
not the only?) Windows Mobile devices which can play DivX videos out of the box
already. Straight in the Windows Media Player Mobile (click
here for a screenshot), even if it's not
