The just released (2001-01-18) DIVX 4.0 Beta is NOT safe to use, at least on Win 98.

The most serious problem is total GDI resource exhaustion. I dropped from 86% free to 0% free in minutes.

The primary support site, <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.divx.com>http://www.divx.com</A>, appears to be completely overloaded. Probably by people trying to report bugs.

I will report back when a new beta is available.
