mplayer or xine. and then you need to get codecs. windows/quicktime/real player codecs can be had at mplayer's site. xine will use mplayer's codecs. and you may need to get divx4linux from divx.com.

Use Mplayer and in case that don't work, try xine.
My box is setup so that those files opens directly in Mplayer and if that don't work. I'm opening them with Xine. no problems there. *grins* not even with the ones i've packed with Dr.Divx on my XP part either (divx 5.05)
