In just 3 short days, DivX will shut down Stage6.com, citing rising costs for keeping the service running. In a note to users on the site from Tom, a DivX employee, he states:
"...we plan to shut down Stage6 on February 28, 2008. Upload functionality has already been turned off, and you’ll be able to view and download videos until Thursday."
Tough breaks for DivX. While it's a great format, it definitely got beaten by Flash in the streaming video game.
If you're a Stage6 user, start looking elsewhere.
