Play divx encoded file in media centre

Discussion in 'Windows Vista File Management' started by Nicholas Hall, Jun 9, 2007.

  1. I have some films that have been encoded with the divx codec, I wish to
    watch them in media centre.
    Due to the problems I had before when I installed the divx player I do not
    wish to install the divx player software.
    Is there a codec pack that would do the job for me, or will I have to
    install the divx player software to be able to watch any film that has been
    encoded with the divx codec???

    Any help/ advice or links would be gratefully accepted.

  2. Do a custom install of Divx. Deselect all but the Divx codec's. You don't
    need/want the rest.

    During the divx install, do a CUSTOM install and ONLY install the codec. Be sure
    to get the latest version from The other components of the install
    have known problems with Vista.
