    DIVX file right ?

    Solution 1.
    You can move the file 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.

    Thanks to DrX for his solution...

    I'm assuming that you have just downloaded some sort of divx codec. First of all do a search for the nimo codec pack, then install it, BUT do not install the G400 component unless you've got a matrox milleniumumum, I found that that fixed the same problem I had. give it a whirl. PLUS I find that if you use ANOTHER player for your divx you get better results. I actually use PoverDVD to play my divx files and I get none of the lipsync probs.
