LAS VEGAS--(Business Wire)--DivX, Inc. (NASDAQ:DIVX) and Jaman.com, the leading international
and independent Internet film service, today announced an agreement to
add video titles from the Jaman.com library to the DivX Connected(TM)

electronics devices.

   The thousands of titles available at Jaman.com include foreign,
independent, short, and documentary films. The two companies will work
together to make selections from the Jaman library available to users
of DivX Connected devices, extending the content experience beyond the
limits of the PC to the living room. The first DivX Connected device
available to consumers from D-Link is presently for sale online in the
UK, France, and Germany and will be released in the US in 2008.

   "By working with DivX to make Jaman video available on the DivX
Connected platform, we can offer our users a compelling solution to
bring internet-distributed international and independent films
directly into their living rooms," said Jaman's CEO Gaurav Dhillon.
"We want to give our users the ability to watch their content how and
where the like, beyond just the PC."

   "Jaman's model of distributing high quality movies over the
internet offers viewers a uniquely diverse range of content, but
viewers want flexibility over where they watch those films," said
Jerome "Gej" Vashisht-Rota, Co-founder, Vice President & Group
Business Manager, Media Experience, at DivX, Inc. "Because DivX
Connected is an open platform, we can partner with services like
Jaman, and together bring compelling new content to the living room
