Question Divx with Mplayer


Does anybody know how to install de Divx codec to play This kind of video with Mplayer. I've downloaded de codec form the divx homepage and installed with no problem but when I try to open a Divx movie I get this error:

Mplayer interrupted by signal 11 in module:Crashed by bad usage of CPU/FPU/RAM

I don't think it's your codec install giving you problems. Get the win32 codecs from the mplayer homepage and install those www.mplayerhq.hu Then, fire up mplayer and play your video again:
mplayer -vo xv /path/to/file/filename.avi

What are you using to play it? I mean, what command? Also, how did you install it, via RPM or did you compile it?



Cool

Thumbs up Done

Thank you MasterC, The win32 resolved the problem. About the command I'm using, I installed it with the source code not the RPM, but when I want to play a movie I just click on the file because I'm a newbie and I'm just starting to get involved with the shell. I'm about 1 month using SuSE 8.1 and I'm new at Linux world.

Thanks again !!!

They also have a Linux version on Divx for download, although it may be an older version. I've had no problems using it.

Depending on your browser, you should right-click and use "Save-as" and save the file on your hard drive....

What's happening here is that your browser doesn't know what to do with a *.tgz file and its treating it as a text file or webpage and just displaying it (which ends up being garbage on your screen, same as if you used 'cat' on a binary).
