hi there...

thank you very much for your help.i found the site you referred me to and i downloaded the file divx3.11_alpha.zip...but i can't figure out how to install it. might you be able to help me? i'm sorry for all the bother. thank you again...marylyn

Commented:
You were right about downloading "divx3.11_alpha.zip", this is what you need. To install it, simply decompress the archive in a given folder and then double click on
"Register_DivX.exe". The codec will now be installed and you should now be able to watch mpeg4 movies with Windows Media Player.

Benhere is also correct..

The DivX codec is needed to play and make DivX movies. To install the DivX codec for Windows, follow these easy steps:

1) Download the DivX codec for Windows
2) Use WinZip to unzip all files
3) Right click on the DivX.inf file and choose "Install"

After you've installed the DivX codec on your computer Windows Media Player will be able to play movies which need a DIV3/DIV4 decompressor. To test if the codec is working properly, goto the Trailers section and download some movie trailers. If you run into any problems, please refer to the DivX FAQ for solutions to common DivX codec installation and playback problems.

Cheers,
