DivX support on the Xbox 360 is something that a lot of people want to see, and thanks to a little blurt from the new CEO of video codec company, we have a little bit more fuel to add to the fire. A JP Morgan analyst, Paul Coster, asked Kevin Hell, DivX's new CEO, whether the Xbox 360 would get DivX certification given that Microsoft Media Extender just got it. Here's how the conversation went down:
Paul Coster: Just a minor point here, but there was a recent Microsoft (MSFT) conference where I believe their media extender now incorporates the DivX codec on it, is that correct? Can you confirm that and does that mean weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re soon going to see Xboxes with DivX on them?
Kevin Hell: Yes! that, uh, weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re in discussions with Microsoft on that at this point in time, so I canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t go into any great detail on that. Um that is not a certified, that is not a certified or licensed product at this time.
What do you think? Is Hell hiding something or what?
