After installing the above I now get a message from DIVx player saying "The Video File you are opening contains video data that is not recognised by DIVx player. The file contains the following type of data. Video data "FOURCC" code: XVID.
.. that I have 3 codecs already installed that should be able to play the file. Also, when i select the "Render" option it says "Rendering failed" I'm beginning to think that there may be a problem with the file itself?
Dirk - is that all g spot tells you about the file? I had a problem a while ago in which it said I had 5 avaialble codecs, so I thought "well play the ******* thing then" but it was also telling me the the path to the first one was invalid (can't remeber the exact term) and it seems that because that one existed but was defective the system wouldn't go any further.
The solution was to find the application - Power DVD in my case - that had the bad codec, remove and reinstall.
Also do you know that the file isn't corrupted - does it play on anything else?
