First off your link is not valid, at least I can't find the host. In anycase I would suggest using mplayer or xine to view DIVX encoded video, mplayer supports much more than xine and after you figure out how to install it and install other the dependent packages it is great. Good luck!
what have you found that MPlayer can't do?? i'ev had a few trouble with AC3 audio streams, but they've got fixed now.
hehe, actually i'm glad you asked such a dumb question, as you'll actaully get told which is the better divx player (MPlayer) as opposed to the most common (Xine). I guess i wish people would ask "what file sharing software is there?" rather than going and finding limewire and then getting confused and hating linux because limewire is so bad, just because i's the easiest to find!

I got a couple of divx5 vids that mplayer doesn't play - it starts and crashes.
All i get is a black screen. Have to kill it after that. It's only 2 or 3 - other divx5 vids work fine. With xine i got trouble with some xvid vids. I'll look into it one of these days.
they don't use 2.96 as it is well known that it has a few math errors. relating this to MPlayer it results in incorrectly encoded MP3 streams and a few other notable glitches. apparently redhat maintain they fixed the bug in 2.96-80 or greater.
