Some people may think that these two are the same, but they do have some differences that should be noted. DivX is a video codec, and this is used for recording videos. This has been used by people whenever they want to save videos and sounds without losing too much sound quality.
This can be very helpful when you want something that can be played in most hardware players. Xvid is ideal if you would like to do some editing or if you would need more advanced features for the media files that you want to get. There are some people who also choose Xvid when they want to use a program in order to playback the videos or sounds that they have recorded.
There are many differences between Divx and Xdiv. The two video codecs are used in compressing full-length videos into smaller sizes and the quality of the videos will still be maintained. The two codecs are easy to use and they are widely used because of the quality of videos they produce, including their speed and the effectiveness. However, there are differences between Divx and Xdiv.
Both Divx and Xdiv are free to use but the code source of Divx is protected, while the code source of Xdiv is not protected, which means, you can manipulate the code source for your desired purpose. The quality of any video compression made by Xdiv is sharp, while the quality of video compression made by Divx has a kind of artifacts around the video which shows that, it has been compressed. Xdiv codec cannot be used to view any video compression made by Divx, while Divx codec cannot be used to view any video compression made by Xdiv.
