How do i get divx drivers how do they work? what are they?

I downloaded a set I found on Kazaa but i found a virus on it before i installed tg.

I have downloaded a file called dix_311 alpha and installed it.

But i still cant get those divx movies to play.

HELP plz.

I have an Athlon 800 runnign Windows ME and the latest MP. I have just downloaded all the updates for MP so im sure that im not out of date.

Cheers.

You can get the DivX codecs from www.divx.com

All I know is these codecs help you watch movies that have been compressed in divx compression which is about 64:1 I think.

What movie did you download? ;-)

just a side note- is kazaa still spyware??

most of my mates have switched from the crash happy spyware filled kazaa to morpheus(www.musiccity.com). it runs on the same network and is basicly the same prog kazaa is.

if you have no joy with the divx 4.11 post back some details of the movie as there are heaps of avi codecs around.

Go to DivX.com and download the latest codec, which should run all straight DivX movies. If that doesn't work, then the movie was probably encoded with AngelPotion version of DivX, so do a Google search for Angelpotion (one word) and download the codec for that, and you should be fine.
