  1. I'm trying to make an AVI file with the DIVX format but I'm having a bit of trouble. I'm able to get the Codec ID (DX50) correct, but the format is not. When viewing my converted file with MediaInfo it shows this under the General section:

    Format: AVI
    Format/Info: Audio Video Interleave

    But what I need is for it to show:

    Format : DivX
    Format/Info : Hack of AVI

    Does anyone know how to do this? I'm using XviD 64 (from VirtualDub) as my writing library and DX50 as the Codec ID. Thanks!

    AFAIK, VirtualDub cannot output to the DivX "container". You would have to use a different editor (or remuxer)

  3. Any suggestions? I tried the official Divx Converter app and even though it would output to a .divx container, the format and format/info were still AVI/Audio Visual Interleave.

    Probably the DivX people themselves have abandoned their hacked AVI container... because they did switch to Matroska, IIRC.

    It seems only a program named "fuse.exe" could do the trick.

    Google has led me to nowhere, regarding the archive "Fuse02182005.zip".

    UPDATE: use DivXMediaBuilder, https://www.videohelp.com/software/DivXMediaBuilder.

    I have just remuxed a normal AVI containing DX50 video to a .divx file, and MediaInfo says "hack of AVI"

    Glad to be of assistance

    But it would be nice if some elder member of this forum could share their copy of fuse.exe

    Just a side note:

    If you are using DivX v7+ with HD resolutions and AVC (or even HEVC in the current v10) compression, a *.divx file might even be a special version of the MKV container instead...
