DivX celebrates 5th anniversary with free DivX Create bundle

Posted 29 September 2005 17:15 CEST by Crabbyappleton

*update* The offer seems to have expired already. Airhead used our news submit to tell us "Well, its free... What's the catch?" :D I don't know Airhead but I downloaded the darn thing as it saves me $19.95! Apparently, the folks at DivX are celebrating their fifth anniversary by offering for a limited time, a free copy of DivX Create Bundle for Windows XP and 2000. All you have to do is head over to the site and give up an email address and then download the software. Soon, they mail you back with a serial number. Not bad! Also, special thanks to Jan70 who also alerted us to this great deal. Mac users were not forgotten either. Mac Users We haven't forgotten you. Unfortunately, at this time DivX Pro 5 for Mac is not compatible with either OS X 10.4 or QuickTime 7, and the DivX 6 Create Bundle is not yet available for the Mac OS. Don't worry though '“ it's coming soon! In the meantime, you can try the next version completely free by grabbing the DivX Fusion Beta for Mac from DivX Labs.   Source: DivX

I went there and got: "Sorry! The one-day DivX five year anniversary giveaway has ended. (Try checking back in September, 2010.)." Damnit.

Yep. Either it was old news, or the giveaway lasted less than 24 hours. Sheesh, what a disappointment.

A bunch of others tried on another forum, downloaded and no key was ever sent, so to this spam there are always other ways if you really want it.

Me no getum key either! :c edit: I went to the site and they had this to say: "Still waiting for your free serial number? Our giveaway was so popular that there is a large backlog in our mail servers. If you entered a valid e-mail address we will be continuing to send out serial numbers over the next two days. Remember that if you use an e-mail service with mail filtering your serial number may have been diverted into a bulk mail folder."

According to, "it looks like they are not including the Mpeg2/DVD to DivX converter with this free package, so I guess we found the "catch" for this deal, making this deal not as hot as we originally thought. They say you can purchase the addon that enables Mpeg2/DVD to DivX conversion."
