Ah, DivX Logos

Postby niji tsuki » Fri Dec 15, 2006 11:55 pm

Many people hate to see that wonderful little DivX watermark on AMVs, and yet they want you to compress your movies using DivX because it's "so good" - but if you export using DivX, you're going to get the DivX logo.

How do you get rid of that bloody thing?! It drives me bonkers sometimes. I'd like to sort this problem out once and for all.

1) Use XviD instead.

2) Read this thread.

dont use DIVX files in your video program... use another codec...

go into your DIVX program and turn off the logo so it doesnt get hard encoded into your wmv file or your (insert other type of file here) file..

and read this

1) No, they want you to compress your movies using XviD because it's better. :P

2) If the DivX logo shows up when you play a video, it's there for one of two reasons:<ul><li><b>It has been hardcoded into the video</b>, because someone was using DivX as <i>source footage</i> in something like Windows Movie Maker and didn't have the logo turned off <b>on their machine</b>. If this is the case, then the video can be in any format -- MPEG-1, WMV, AVI -- and it will still have the DivX logo, and there's nothing you as the viewer can do about it.<li><b>You're using the DivX codec to watch the video</b> in whatever media player you use, and you don't have the logo turned off <b>on your machine</b>. In this case, you can solve the problem simply by going to the DivX decoder options and disabling the logo (I believe the option is on the second tab), or by ditching DivX and getting some other codec to handle DivX streams (like XviD or ffdshow).</ul>Let us be very clear on this point: compressing or exporting your video with the DivX codec, in and of itself, will not hardcode the DivX logo into your video -- only using DivX-encoded <i>source footage</i> does that.

Thanks for your help everybody (I've been making videos for years, but sometimes I feel like such a n00b). Well, my sister and I finally figured it out and (hopefully) if anyone's looking at this thread for the answer we have it now.
I'm not sure what version of DivX we have, but we know it's an updated version.

Go to the Start Menu and go to DivX, then DivX Codec, and click Decoder Configuration Utility.

Then click the tab that says "Toolbar" and at the bottom of the window you'll see "Show DivX logo watermark" UNCHECK IT

Image



And you're on your way to making better (appreciated) videos! *thumbs up!* :D

Or you could always use something other than DivX... XviD comes to mind, having been the standard here for a few years now.
