DivX has finally rolled out an alpha version of its first H.264 encoder, this new encoder will be part of DivX 7.
The second package to be released from Project RĂ©moulade is an alpha version of the DivX H.264 Encoder. Complementing the DivX H.264 Decoder, this multithreaded encoder produces high definition H.264 video bitstreams that are compatible with the draft profile for DivX 7 H.264 HD video. The encoder is a command line utility and accepts input from raw AVI files as well as the AVISynth frameserver.
