    Here is the problem :

    I play a lot of video (manga) in Media player (6.4 or 8.1)
    BUT some videos are inversed...like viewing them in a mirror AND the upside down...
    I hav reinstalled the divx 3.11 4.12...many times in any orders and no changes...
    Any idea?

    Solution 1.
    You can
    move the file DivX_c32.ax from the windows/system or windows/system32
    directory to another place (any directory). It will make the movies
    playback normally but you will lose the ability to make changes to the
    brightness/contrast and CPU settings of the codec since they are handled
    by that file. It might be possible to put the file back for adjustments
    and then move it again to see movies the right way.

    In case you are wondering what the file actually does it is a DirectShow
    filter which does some processing to the image before it displays it in
    Windows Media Player so removing it will only remove those small changes
    along with the ability to change settings. You will probably not notice
    it (except for upside down playback being fixed).

    Solution 2
    Another solution is to use The Playa to watch DivX movies instead of
    using Windows Media Player.

    Solution 3
    We have heard about a third solution which involes changing the registry entry
    \"HKEY_CURRENT_USER\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Scrunch\\WMVideo\\Vertical Flip Packed YUV\" but haven't been able to test it.

    Excellent...Thanks a lot...

    The registry key does NOT exist on my PC (XP pro).
    But thanks anyway.

    I had that same problem but when I installed the divix 4.12 codex it went away.
