DivX is a digital video format that was developed by DivX Networks Inc. The DivX file format has found application in order to store high-resolution video after these files are compressed to a certain percentage of their initial size. At the same time, there is no need to talk about quality loss. When certain codecs are used, the files have a resolution of up to 1080 pixels. Moreover, they are able to occupy disk space up to 1 GB. DIVX files are media containers. They use audio and video codecs in order to increase compression efficiency, as well as in order to play data enclosed in a file of this format. There are two types of codecs used. In order to play .divx files, you need a DivX decompressor. DivX decompressors are included in most kits and packages. Many major media players have their own DivX support. DivX video files are also played by many hardware players. The lion's share of multimedia players can recognize the DIVX file type and open correctly to play .divx files. Only occasionally do you have to change the extension to .avi.
GIF is one of the most common raster image formats. Its name is an abbreviation for Graphics Interchange Format File. The developer is the CompuServe organization. A feature of this particular image format is its ability to support the animation function. You can edit animated GIFs in different programs (for example, Easy GIF Animator). Animation is achieved due to the fact that a file of this format carries in itself in a certain sequence several raster images at once. With a depth of up to 256 colors, significant data compression in GIF files is possible without loss of quality.
