    i've downloaded divx 4.11 and when i want to see a movie , i just start ThaPlaya and open a movie with it. It should work fine then. Just don't use any of that media player crap. :D

    its most likey that the avi file isnt complete. I think tha player lets you play incomplete avi's but im not sure. Real player does let you play incomplete avis, but the playback isnt so great

    Use ZoomPlayer for all your mediaplaying needs ->

    If you have a divx file that isn't working (and you know it should, becuase others do), there is an application that can rebuild the header file over on
