At this time of year, software isn't a priority for many and software developers realise this and offer various promotions. Although DivX have previously offered the Pro edition - which normally retails for $20 - for free, they are offering the promotion again for a limited period, over the Christmas holidays.
The main difference between the free version and the Pro version is the ability to convert between formats and prepare your video for the Internet (or other formats). However, it appears the MPEG-2/DVD codec isn't included with this free version of the Pro edition, so it's not quite a $20 valued product for free. Still, we all like freebies, so we advise you download this version before the free offer expires.
