Stage6.com has been shut down. Thank you for supporting the service. We created Stage6 with the mission of empowering content creators and viewers to discover a new kind of video experience. Ultimately, the continued operation of Stage6 was a very expensive enterprise that required an enormous amount of attention and resources that we at DivX are not in a position to continue to provide. There are a lot of other details involved, but at the end of the day it's really as simple as that. The DivX experience will continue, of course. Every day new DivX Certified devices arrive on the market making it easy to move video beyond the PC. Products powered by DivX Connected, our new initiative that lets users stream video, photos, music and Internet services from the PC to the TV, are hitting retail outlets. We remain committed to empowering content creators to deliver high quality video to a wide audience, and we'll continue to offer services that will make it easy to find videos online in the DivX format. It's been a wild ride, and none of it would have been possible without the support of our users. Thank you for making Stage6 everything that it was.

This is a sad day.

Sucks, that was pretty much the only high res streaming video site out there. Guess we're stuck with youtube. :p

Yeah, Prime, same.

Actually, the name sounds vaguely familiar, but I can't figure out why.
