DivX to feature official MP3 sound support

Posted on Tuesday, Mar 15 2005 @ 20:03 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
The next DivX video codec will feature official support for MP3 and MP3 surround audio.
While MP3 audio has been used with Divx encoded movies for yonks, the official licensing of the technology from Fraunhofer and Thomson means that the codec can be used in official / legal / commercial content created with the video format, rather than just episodes of 24 downloaded from BitTorrent.
