Well, this is interesting. I knew about the Google deal but I didn’t know DivX was involved. I agree with you on scale: this could be huge. On my 3mb connection / 2.4 Ghz PC at home, the SD video came in very quickly and played back without a hitch. The HD video took longer to buffer, but it was still much faster than I’d expected. Playback had one stutter, and I think I saw a few dropped frames but in general it was dazzling. I did have to crank my display setting to 1280×1024 to get all of the “Shark Tale” frame in there. Looked great on my 19″ CRT, though my desktop icons are now quite small. 🙂 Thanks for blogging this. It’ll be interesting to see if this development eventually drives the standard desktop display setting upward from the XGA level. I’m betting it will, and that will have ramifications for web page design too….
