The first version of DivX was called DivX 😉 and came directly in version 3. DivX 😉 was not developped by DivXNetworks Inc, it was a hack of the Microsoft‘s pre-MPEG-4 video codec allowing it’s use in AVI files. Since version 4 DivX is named DivX without the “;-)” and is no more a hack of a Microsoft codec.
