DivX launches Stage6.com

DivX has launched Stage6.com, a video upload site targeting competitors such as YouTube and Revver. Though many sites already support DivX's proprietary codec, Stage6 is distinguished by keeping uploads intact rather than converting them to Flash or another downgraded format. Users will additionally have the option of applying DRM to their work, preventing others from copying videos outside of initial viewing. The eventual goal of this is to offer shows and movies for sale, but no official partners have been announced as yet. Visitors can, however, already watch free clips from G4TV in their own channel.

    not mentioned by this post is that stage6 forces you to install yet another plugin just to watch any videos.
