DivX playback coming to Panasonic plasmas

panasonic-divxPanasonic is about to make playing back DivX a bit easier on its plasmas. The next-gen sets will be able to access the content over DLNA or SD/SDHC cards. But why do you care?

Well, sometimes utilizing a sneakernet is easier than setting up a complicated network, running cables, finding compatible equipment that’s loaded with the right codec just so you can watch a pirated movie. Now, just load the movie on an SD card and the TV will play it back; as long as it’s encoded in DivX.
