New DivX codec released... Tim

Video hounds like me might be interested to know that a new DivX codec has been released. DivX 6.0 doesn't seem to change much in the way of video quality, but it adds several handy DVD-like features:
* XSUB™ subtitles let you author movies with multiple language subtitle sets
* Interactive video menus offer unprecedented convenience and control so you can quickly navigate between various scenes or bonus features, and select from audio track and subtitle options
* Chapter points provide flexibility, allowing you to jump straight to the scene you want to watch from anywhere within the video
* Alternate audio tracks enable audio tracks in multiple language versions or separate audio tracks for specific speaker configurations
* XTAG™ video tags contain descriptive information like title, author and the video specifications used in the file’s creation to streamline organization
* The .divx file extension clearly identifies content in the DivX format so you’ll never again be left wondering whether that .avi file will really play in your DivX® Certified device
The menu and chapter features sound excellent. Unfortunately, right now, only the official DivX player supports these features. Other players will simply play the main feature without the menus, and whatnot. Hopefully Philips will be on the ball and release a firmware update for the DVP642...
