Keep your eyes on XVid. This is also an OpenDivX-derived codec, but it’s open source. According to all reports and tests, this seems to be good competition for DivX4. As soon as it’s more accessible or I have more time, I can start playing with it.
Clan Of Xymox came to my attention recently on EMusic. This is rather interesting Alternative/Goth/Industrial that reminds one of vintage Sisters of Mercy with some Cure thrown in for kicks. I can highly recommend this.
