Did the DIVX format have worse picture quality than DVD? Is that why the format failed?

Also, I've seen some DVD players from around the time DIVX was launched that could play DIVX discs. One model (branded as RCA, distributed by Thomson Consumer Electronics) can be found on a YouTube video uploaded by the user databits. 16:24, 17 August 2023 (UTC)

  • The DIVX format's problems went beyond any bad picture quality that might have plagued it. The DIVX format was afflicted from the start with the cancer that was overzealous copy protection, which kind of metastasized, to put it lightly, over the course of its two years of existence. --IlCattivo25 (talk) 19:42, 17 August 2023 (UTC)
