DivX 6 Converter/Encode for Mac PowerPC

Right now for Intel Mac can download DivX8 but PowerPC Macs can still install DivX6.  It’s good software to have installed because it plays all DivX videos and MKV formats.  You can convert files ending in one of the following extensions: .mov, .mpg, .mpeg, .mp4, .avi and divx, by just dragging and dropping!    One nice feature of DivX is the conversion profile.  The profiles are predefined templates where you choose the dimensions you want, select the video bitrate and other conversion settings that are appropriate for various playback devices.  There are 5 standard profiles, handheld, portable, home theater, high def and custom.

Thank you André for sharing this app with us.

*Xact – I took a look online and it seems this app Xact 2.14 is Intel only, but an old version like 2.13 or older 1.63 works in a PowerPC.  At this moment I can not test, but if you can please feel free to share with us the results.
