Installing Divx for Linux

I'm running Fedora. I got the file for Divx and its uncompressed. I don't know what to do with the .h and .ch files that were in it.

.h .ch... sounds like source code to me! Why not use mplayer? I believe that plays divx files and a while lot more besides.

Other than that, what other files are included in the uncompressed folder?
