Problem with DivX on my computer

Hi All,

I just installed the new version of DivX on my computer and it really messed everything up. In fact I had to do a complete system restore and take all my files off my computer and put everything back on. It was a mess.

Once everything was fixed, I put DivX back on ( I wasn't sure if it was the cause of the problem) and right away my computer completely slowed down.

I am running Windows XP with a 1 1/2 year old HP laptop. Has anyone had this problem with DivX? I also have a Dell Laptop new and noticed it has had some problems after DivX was installed.

I know everyone will just say get a MAC- and I am getting a new desktop MAC, but I like to use my laptop too!

Any advice?


Do you have anything else rather than DivX installed on your machine? Such as 'ffdshow' or any other player? Sometimes the incompatibility issues appear and the problems start to get to the surface when more than one software installed which is serving the same purpose would be there.

Forget about DivX and install VLC player. It is a lot better and I know that the interface does not look good, but give it a try. A lot better than DivX and I use it to play all of my movies.

Please, find down the download link:

and after that choose any of the available server to download.

In case you were unable to play some movies, just download those two small codecs and all would be fine.

1-AC3 Filter [Sound].

2-xVid Codec [Video]

Have a nice day.

Best Regards

I use the VLC player. I only need to DivX to watch tv shows online- which I like to do sometimes. The problem is, I have to use DivX!

Don't think I have the ffdshow.

The thing that is wierd with DivX is once I installed the new version, my computer went @$#%#. It wouldn't turn on and it took a lot just to get it to safe mode where I could get my files off and then completely re install everything. Have you heard of DivX causing this?

tra la la

be one crazy dude to do something like that with your machine. It is been a while for me since the last time I used DivX, but the problem is some of the other software comes with DivX integrated within it. Some of them need DivX to play some videos. Some of them even Roxio writing software will create problems if it was there. Sometimes even without it because the writing mechanism in Windows XP [Built-in writing to CDs advantage which you can access it through send to then copy these files to CD] is using Roxio.

The video issues and codecs problems are endless, try to install VOBSub to see the subtitles for a movie and you will find that no videos on other players are playing, video games does not work and a lot more. If you need to watch movies over the net, why don't you use DivX for web? Or DivX Web Application Player? Hopefully it would solve your problems and would not be depending somehow on DivX.

Good Luck

Please someone kill me and do it quick, no more kicks you kow where and then giving me your victory speech because you got me down now. Do it fast and quick and make it clean, kicking under the belt was never clean and will always put you in trouble :)

Oh King- I will try to not to fall for your PM, they are all so poetic. Taking lessons from Darude??

I will kick so hard you go right through the wall into King's secret room- where all the toys are. I guess he calls them fishing gear but we all know what that really means.

tra la la

I never checked on DaRuDe PMs, guess that he is doing a better job than me. lol, honestly it ionly fihing gear and I use some of them to catch only BIG FISH :)

he use to catch BIG FISH with it now what does that really mean think u are enough clever to understand that hmm king and where do you get those BIG FISH FROM. coz with me u never caught one :D


So you like the big fish??? Hmm Darude is always saying how big and strong he his- maybe trying for your attention? So you can catch him??

:) :)

tra la la

Big Fish = Big Fish = Hamour or King Fish .... go to wikipedia guys and read :) and I got the big fish from the fish market sometimes, never knew that catching those is a pain in the a**.

Of course everyone likes big fish, who likes the small one. When it is big, it tastes better and is more juicy and there is always enough for everyone :) :)

i can understand its Big its Juicy tastes better BUT HOW IN THE HELL YOU SHARE ENOUGH FOR EVERY ONE :/


fish market? Hmm thought those are illegal in Doha. Bad Bad BAd- jut don't get caught or bad things will happen.

tra la la

tra la la

and who the hell is going to feed that poor girl you nutz all night u banged her took out all her energy and now leaving her alone and having lunch with brother u monster


Darude- better teach King a lesson. Attack wolf!!!

tra la la

No need man, .. no need ... The girl now is a history ... What do you think that we had for lunch? :)

If you want to avoid any hassle with all the codec, just download K-Lite Mega Codec Pack Version 3.30. All codecs you need (audio and video) are there in one whole pack. You can get also get Classic Media Player (and it's better than VLC player).

If you have subtitle file (*.sub, *.srt) it will automatically play with the movie.

Here's the link

If you want to look for movie subtitles go to this site

You just need to register and you can download movie subtitle in different language.
