DivX coming to set-top DVD players
DivX support is coming to a set-top DVD player from Scandinavian KiSS Technology. The DP-450 supports DivX 4.xx and 5.xx, in addition to MPEG-4 and MP3 playback, and will be available this month, though there's no word on specific North American availability.
For an enthusiast, setting up a DivX-compatible media PC connected to a TV isn't a big deal, but that's a decidedly more daunting task for mainstream users. Set-top devices like the DP-450 should only make the DivX format more popular, something that's sure to further annoy the MPAA.
