Question Video codecs?

I have both xine and mplayer installed and i can not watch my movies that are in the divx and xvid format. Some of my movies also have the Ac3 audio codec. So on some movies I have sound and no video and then other times I have video and no sound. So my question is where do I get the codecs and how do i install theme?

mplayer's website and documentation have links to all the codecs

EDIT: btw, you'll have to compile mplayer yourself to get all the codecs
