Normally you have to shell out $20 for this, but for a limited time you can download this free DivX Pro software and use it as if you had paid for it all along. While this may not seem exciting to most people, chances are if you've ever downloaded a video from the Internet, it was compressed with DivX. What does this mean for you and me? Well, now we can compress our home movies using DivX! So instead of that 30 second clip of Billy blowing out his birthday candles being 100 MB, it can now be a much more manageable 2 or 3 MB without losing any quality. For all of us tech nerds out there, this is cool. The rest of you can commence laughing at us….right….about….now!
