How To: Register Your Samsung Phone to play DivX Protected Content

Posted on Jun 23 2011 - 6:53pm by Brian

When you spend as much time lurking around our gadgets as we do, you are bound to find some hidden features:

5 bucks says you’ve never seen this menu

After digging around the ‘About phone’ section in settings, we realized there was an option to activate the DivX VOD registration process. I don’t think I’ve actually done any research on DivX since the era when Kazaa and Napster were 90% of the internet’s traffic, but apparently it’s kind of a big deal. I say kind of because nobody knows what the heck it is. Yet.

Although Netflix commands a whopping 61% of VOD marketshare, DivX looks to bring seamless VOD integration to an array of DivX certified devices. We’ll be going over the part that is not so seamless.

Much like Samsung’s Media Hub (read our review here), DivX VOD associates a content’s license with an account rather than a device. This means that you can play your media on any compatible device that is registered to your DivX account. Enough chit chat, here’s how to get DivX VOD on your Samsung Infuse:

1. Download the latest version of DivX

Here

2. Find your registration code

Hit Menu > Settings > About phone >Legal information > License settings > DivX VOD > Register

3. Create a DivX VOD Account

Run the DivX Player and goto VOD tab and select ‘Create a DivX Account.’

You will need to confirm via Email.

4. Register your device, create registration video

Using the same menu above, select ‘Register a DivX Certified Device’ and input the aforementioned reg code; this will create the video file which will activate your device when played

5. Move the registration video to your phone

Connect your phone to your computer via USB and goto your notification bar and select the option to copy files from your computer. Save it to a directory you can navigate to.

Made two on accident. Derp

6. Play the video

Go to Applications > My Files > Directory you saved the video in. Press play; if the video plays, you have successfully registered your device!

Check out DivX’s list of providers and start watching your favorite shows and movies on your Infuse!

    When you make a website, all your web pages are served from the
    server residing somewhere on the internet. Figure out
    what it is you need and want and from there shop around
    to see what web hosts matches these expectations. Japanese Gardens – Although the gardens are technically in Fort Worth, Texas, it is only a
    short drive.
