    Yes , this is an option , Divx 5.0 pro comes with a player called Divx Player 2.0 but that's alpha
     
  3. i just use winamp to watch movies. it's the best one i think

    id recommend not to use divx 5.0

    hey divx 5.0 supposedly has spyware and such in it. im sure u can get rid of it :)

    but u should try sites like divx digest

    it has many codecs and your best bet is to use divx 3 and 4 because not many videos are encoded using 5 at the moment... so i hear



    your local haXXor, pegusus

    So far i've had no problem with divx 5, although some have experienced problems when trying to encode with it.

    as for spyware, that is only if you get divx 5 pro.

    I would strongly recommend not to get DIVX 5.0. It seems to be very unstable. And, when installing, if you have any illegal codecs, it corrupts them. I've noticed that when watching movies that are compressed using certain methods, you can see the actual separations in the layering in the movie, which makes it really hard to pay attention to the movie and not the flickering. I uninstalled 5 and put in 4 again. I couldnt be happier.
