Default News: DivX Support coming soon?

SanDisk Signs Licensing Agreement to Support DivX Format Video
Wednesday June 13, 8:30 am ET Relationship will Allow Consumers to Enjoy High-Quality DivX Video in the Home or on the Go
SAN DIEGO & MILPITAS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--DivX, Inc. (NASDAQ:DIVX - News) and SanDisk® Corporation (NASDAQ:SNDK - News) today announced a licensing agreement allowing SanDisk to include DivX® technology in SanDisk's Sansa® line of video-enabled products.

As a result of the partnership, future SanDisk video products can now include interoperability with the DivX Stage6 video website. This partnership is designed to provide SanDisk consumers with seamless access to the growing library of professional and user-generated video content available today in the popular DivX format.
"This partnership aims to allow our customers to take full advantage of innovative video features and content found only through DivX," said Daniel Schreiber, Senior Vice-President and General Manager for SanDisk's Audio Video Business Unit.
"Our agreement with SanDisk brings together pioneering consumer electronics with DivX's expertise for digital video," said Kevin Hell, President of DivX, Inc. "Adding DivX to the Sansa product line's arsenal of features will provide cutting-edge media capabilities to consumers, and strengthen the common media language we're building through the open DivX ecosystem."
Products that bear the DivX Certified logo have undergone a rigorous testing program to ensure a high-quality DivX media experience, including reliable video playback, interoperability with other DivX Certified devices and the visual quality users expect from DivX.
SanDisk expects to announce plans later this year for DivX support in its product lines.

The only problem is that they don't list what Sansa products will be getting the DivX support. The article doesn't specifically mention the E200 series.

I'm 110% sure that doesn't affect the e200 at all, only newer players.

Might be interesting only for battery life. Videos in Rockbox are already very good, the only issue is battery life.

EDIT: People got crazy. Three threads were started on the same topic today.

Indeed.. noone actually looks if that damn thing hasn't been posted already.

And it will most likely NOT be implemented on the e200. The e200 might play MPEG1/2 on Rockbox, with a slow framerate, but most likely no MPEG4 SP/ASP videos on that weak processor.

That's true and then SanDisk has another policy concerning new players. I suppose that they don't produce a player for more than 2 years, like Cowon does. So the days of the popular e200 might end with the release of the new "Nano Killer".
