Tom's Hardware goes over Divx 6.0, newly out on the market.

It'll be interesting to see how many torrent groups start using it, and for what.

As J?r?me "Gej" Rota, DivX's popular and beloved creator and chief engineer, told Tom's Hardware Guide, his team achieved these performance improvements by paying close attention to the codec's key variable, which designates the tradeoff between file size and playback quality: "There's a mode called 'Insane,'" Rota told us, "which is the best mode of the codec that gets you 20 to 40% smaller file size [than with DivX 5]." Newer picture analysis techniques, Rota stated, reduce the distortion rate of a video frame prior to reducing its size, thus enabling the compression algorithm, he said, "to squeeze more of the bits it's going to allocate into a particular piece of the picture."
