How to install DIVX

Hi, I am using Red Hat 7.3. I want to install the divx4linux codec but I really don't have any idea how. Can anybody help me?

you can either download the source files and compile them and install them


download the pre-compiled .rpm and install that


type divx in the search window
and look for redhat7.3 in the list of results

if you need further help
don't hesitate to ask

You can also dowload and install MPLAYER. I use it to read DIVX files and it works fine.

I installed mplayer but when I want to play an avi file I get this message:

Error openning/initializing the selected video_out(-vo) device
