Free "Standard" DiVX codec vs. "Pro" (NOT Pro vs. free Pro)

    I've searched through a lot of posts. There seems to be some confusion
    about the "free" version of DiVX. There are, in fact, TWO free
    downloads on the DiVX site. One is the "Standard" DiVX codec. The
    other is the Ad-Supported free version of DiVX Pro.

    I am not asking about "Pro" vs. "free Pro." I am asking about the
    "free Standard" codec vs. the codec in any version of "Pro." Is there
    any difference in the codec itself? Any features or options that are
    not included in the "free Standard" codec? I don't care about any
    other utilities or applications included in the download, just the
    codec. Thanks.

    It should be pretty clear what the differences are.

    Don't forget about XviD, though. You'll get quality at least as high
    as Divx Pro, but without the commercial/adware tomfoolery.
