Pocket Divx brings Omnia2 features to all WM phones

One of the most attractive features of the Samsung Omnia 2 is its Divx support. Fortunately for the rest of us who do not own one, there is software available that support Divx playback on other devices.

Windows Mobile has had Pocket Divx for some time now, but it just received an update today.

Sadly it does not include a change log, but I have noted the following additions:

My story: I was on my usual flights between Atlanta and Minnesota and Florida. I had a new episode of house on my phone(don’t ask where I found it) and I tried watching it on my first of two connection flights, but both Windows Media player and HTC players don’t support it. I also tried installing core player and VLC player, but even though the supported the video format, they did not support the audio files. I was lucky enough to be on those new flights that have Wi-Fi in the air(I know, isn’t that cool, I was 40,000ft in the air checking my emails) and I received a free 24 hours use card. I got online to freewarepocketpc.net, and browsed there player selection and found this one. I loved it, I downloaded it, installed it. When I loaded it for the first time, it took a little bit of time, because it searches for all the files that it supports, and adds it to the video selection. It took about one minutes and I was watching House and enjoying it, thanks to the program’s very smooth and constant stream even on high res movies. The flight after that was awesome, I left and was in ATL for a while, but now I could watch all the Top Gear and House that I wanted, and my batteries did not dies till about 3 hours later, since I was using the original Touchpro(with 2 extra batteries).

If you read my story and want a peace of this App, you can get it at FWPPC.
