The DivoCodec scam exposed

You’ve got to hand it to me. For two weeks I’ve had an article about the Divocodec scam on my web site, and absolutely no links or nothing pointing to it; in fact I forgot even to tell anybody about it. How’s that for efficient information flow?

In case you encounter an AVI file which shows you a screen telling you do download the DivoCodec, first read this. It may save you some grief.

Off course, anyone who is familiear with the 3wPlayer scam would instantly recognize this as ‘more of the same’.

UnZixWin can decode DivoCodec files as well. Note, however, that it may take two passes.

  1. Dude, you’re awesome, your app works like a charm!! Unfortunately, I went the way of Tom Thu and nearly cried when “Stardust” turned out to be Tranny porn…lol once again thanks for the app!

  2. blkhole: It probably is. I haven’t yet encountered one of these DomPlayer AVI’s, but I believe it is exactly the same format, only with a different message attached to the front.
    Has anyone tried UnZixWin on a DomPlayer AVI? Success or failure reports are both of interest.

  3. Thanks for your UnZixWin Kenneth, I managed to open “a video file” I downloaded that was wrapped in one of these scam archives. It wasn’t even what it claimed to be, as it turned out to be a guy + tranny porn video collection.
    I need to be more careful in future. 🙂
