Convert A Divx To An Mpeg2

If you need to convert a video from DivX format to MPEG-2 for editing or playback on a handheld player, download a free video-converting program. With DivX video in MPEG-2 format, you’ll be able to play your movie in software-based video players without installing a DivX playback codec. Converting DivX to MPEG-2 can take 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the size of your file and the speed of your computer. Most video conversion software allows you to tailor your conversion to the particular device you’ll use to watch your video.
