Hello Acid
I did a quickie with divx5 yesterday night after reading your post.
Do you actually get anything to work with that codec?
Get a grey screen with mplayer and a black screen with xine.
Maybe I should try mplayerXP?

i've not tried it, i just saw it in the docs.

hmm, ok.. confessino xine will play my Matrix divx, but Mplayer bombs at 172 seconds exactly from a audio screw up. i think that's my drivers tho.

right: here's the link for getting yr encrypted/protected dvds to play in xine,
and here's a link which implies that DivX is fully supported by xine. i haven't checked this out yet, but you can be sure i will soon... best to check the DivX page to be sure.

i just got xine and haven't installed it yet, but this is my first foray into installing something like this what with all its dependencies et c.
I installed openquicktime library already, but not sure how to get that working with some player.
i do have MPlayer but the dependencies are so overwhelming that it's on the back burner for now, while i find my feet a bit more. i've only had linux for about a month!

VideoLan

Hi guys...hey like I said like a week ago, I think that for the newest people to Linux, your best bet is getting VideoLan
get the client version, which is ready to run with dvd play back and everything.
It's easier to use than Xine as well.
Check it out
