Someone knows more about this than I, so please correct, but I think Divx is a commercial format? originally came from a Windows Media hack which then evolved into something derived from MPEG4, I think it is still mpeg4 based, and more sophisticated than Apples MPEG4 format, and so some divx breaks in QT... sorry, not much news in the above, avoiding assessing student work... cheers Adrian Miles +++++++++++++++++++++ http://hypertext.rmit.edu.au/vog/vlog/
