media player SuSe 9.0

I'm getting the following error when trying to play divx movies.

Totem could not play 'file:///media/storage-drive/Movies/Matrix%20Reload%20(Full%20DVD%20Copy).avi'.
Reason: Video codec 'MS MPEG-4 V3 (win32)' is not handled. You might need to install additional plugins to be able to play some types of movies.

Can anyone help?

I think you need divx or equivalent (xvid?) codec installed.

Another option is to try out mplayer (installed from source preferably) includes codecs to play just about anything.
