I used to DivX all the time. Now DVD-R disks are affordable I’ve stopped DivX entirely. But DivX could be a choice for large content transfer across the wire (Bittorrent, P2P). If only the telecom companies upgrade their network to fiber and then make it affordable for consumers. Here in Australia, a 650MB file takes a few days if not a week to download - even with Bittorrent…:c

Well you must be on dialup. Try ADSL2. I’m on a 8Mbps plan (10 mins to get a 650 meg file) which is being upped to 12Mbps for testing purposes. All this and 20 gig download limit for 49.95 per month in Australia.
