    I wouldn't really trust Mcafee, it has LOTS of false positives, if it's just divx.com, then yes, its safe, divx is a VERY commonly used website, they have codecs needed for a lot of people to watch videos downloaded to their computer.

    dear!DivX is video compression technology similar to mpg ("mpeg" not miles per gal) that requires a codec (piece of software that understands the format) to view. I would say it is safe to download from a trusted site.
    OR
    One easy solution is to dowload the AVS Video player "Support for a very wide variety of video formats: apart from regular DVD (PAL, NTSC, VCD, SVCD) formats, also supported are: the entire range of MPEG4 (including DivX, XviD, etc.), MPEG1, MPEG2, AVI, Real Media video, Quick Time files, WMV files (including WMV-HD), H.263, H.264, mobile video formats (3GP, 3GP2, MP4).
    This strong compatibility makes AVS DVD Player a universal player" You can dowload it free

    If you are taking about this site then yes it's a safe site:
    http://www.divx.com/

    As a matter of fact, McAfee SiteAdvisor says it's safe too. Maybe your McAfee program is mistaken or is not updated.
    http://www.siteadvisor.com/sites/divx.com


    Otherwise, your McAfee is picking up a false-positive. It happens a lot.

    I did a whois lookup for this site DivX Video Software | Free Video Software | DivX Format | DivX.com here WhoisXY.com Here i got formatted information. Then i have searched some reviews in Google finally i saw some reviews here Scamadviser.com i got this message "High Trust Rating.This Site Looks Safe To use." and here Webutation.net i got 90% web reputation.With these reviews , I think it is legit only.If you are satisfied with these reviews you can go with them.
