Ac3 Codec Divx For Mac

 

When you try to play a DivX encoded file on your Mac and there is no audio, it may be because you are missing one of the following: AC3. You are missing an audio codec or the audio is a format that is not supported. To check which audio codec your file is encoded with, see No audio or audio is distorted with DivX movie playback on a Mac for reference. Note: If your file is encoded with MPEG2 or AC3, see Missing Audio Codec for Mac.

WOW! All this time I've been running the wrong AC3 codec on my Mac Mini!

Last week, I found one that works soooo much better! To find it, I actually had to search for 'a52 codec' and not 'ac3 codec'. Go figure!

  • Original PowerPC version

It is GPL licenced and merely based on the 'a52 library'. But I really wonder were a52 comes from. Too late to investigate tonight though ;)

Update: a52 is now included in a codec pack called Perian and you can even get 5.1 surround sound out of it.

Update: the easiest solution now seems to just use the VLC media player and not worry about the codecs (VLC has everything it needs included).

With DivX 10.2, Codec Pack was removed from the DivX Software bundle. For those of you who used the DivX codec in third party software to play or create your DivX files, here’s an explanation of why we did this and what this means for you.

Why did we do this?

We want to simplify what we distribute and how, so that only the filters used by DivX Player and Web Player, DivX Converter and DivX Media Server applications will be installed. This ensures that you get exactly what they need for your unique use of DivX software, and also reduces the DivX bundle size and install footprint.

What this means for you:

When it comes to the DivX software—Player, Web Player, Converter, Media Server—you won’t see any change. You’ll still be able to play, create, and stream all the same videos just as before. If you had previously installed DivX Codec pack, it will remain on your system even after updating to DivX 10.2.
We want to focus on improving and updating our tools so that you always have the best experience possible with DivX products and the DivX format. By focusing on DivX applications, we can also deliver new codecs and features, like HEVC, and get them to you faster. DivX also has a Software Integration solution that allows us to work with other software creators to ensure compatibility with the DivX format—for file playback or creation. This all will guarantee compliance with the more than 1 billion DivX certified devices in the world.

For those of you who would like to use the legacy DivX Codec Pack to convert and play DivX MPEG-4 videos in third-party programs, you can download it here.
