I then just drag the file onto iSquint, and it converts it to mp4 completely painlessly. It's a Mac-only program, but I'd be surprised if there wasn't something similar for Windows. Since it's so easy to do, I don't really see the need for a DivX player for the iPhone.
    How long does the conversion take? It's been a while since I bothered converting Divx to MP4 for my old phone, but I remember that it took a long time. I think it took nearly as long as the length of the video itself to do the conversion --like an hour for a movie. That is what we're trying to avoid having to do by getting a divx app here, right?

    One more thing to keep in mind is battery life. If the iPhone uses a video decoder (which I believe it does) then it is using significantly less battery because the chip was built solely to decode mp4 files. If you task the cpu with decoding divx it will be using far more battery than using a proprietary chip for the task.

    While its true that it does take about an hour for a movie, it's very easy to queue them up. For example, let's say I somehow acquired 4 episodes of the Sopranos. I drag those 4 files into iSquint, and a couple of hours later, I have 4 files in my iTunes library ready to be synced to my iPhone. True, if you absolutely positively have to watch a DivX movie right now, you can't. However, using iSquint or Handbrake is incredibly easy and results in a video file that looks fantastic on the iPhone. I watch a different TV show on my bus ride every day, and the quality is incredible. Plus, iSquint handles a wide variety of file formats, not just DivX. And no, I'm not affiliated with iSquint- I just think it's awesome. I've been using it even before I had an iPhone to encode movies for my old iPod video.

    It is not like bittorrent outputs files differently on a Mac. Both platforms are pretty much the same and the only place you would normally download files for the iphone is itunes which is available on both pc and mac.

    Mp4 & DivX are both popular formats and used widely on MAC & PC.

    I totally disagree with your statement re. the only place you'd normally download files for the iPhone is iTunes. I like many others on this forum use the torrent sites regularly and even as a sole source of our movies/programs - again, the standard for most movies on the torrent sites AVI/DivX and therefore having a DivX program for the iPhone would be extremely useful as we wouldn't have to go through the labourious (i know it can be automated) & time consuming process of re-encoding to MP4.

    There's more to the iPhone experience than Apple & iTunes!

    I think you misunderstood, I think the above guy meant that most people transfer their movies onto your iPhone from their PC/Mac using iTunes... some may choose other means but sync'ing movies iTunes is most commonly used

    Sorry if got the wrong end of the stick. I guess I'm just over excitable about the prospect of having a DivX app for my iPhone.

    Devs please please help us out, even with a commercial version! Not one available at present.

    Cheers!

    I use Nero Vision to convert my videos, and to my memory it does take that overly long to convert. And correct me if I am wrong, but for the same size MP4 you get better quality than DivX.

    I personally dont mind doing this as then it'd be more useful and I can use it on all sorts of mobile devices and my RAW photo storage viewer as well such as my EPSON P-3000. Also other media player such as the headunit in my car and my HDD recorder in my lounge room.

    So I have a feeling that this isnt going to be a very big topic to get this working...
