ike_it,  divx codecs are freely available for all OS at divx dot come  did you try there?

There maybe other problems with this video than just missing a codec, I recomend keeping gspot handy so that infuture if you have a video or audio problem drop it on to get the codec analyser to show what the problem maybe.
It will tell you if you have the codecs installed or need some.
Once it's analysed look down to Codecs solutions and tests then click on V1 then V2 and V3

Just to add most codecs in the form of a media player
try media player classic it supports a variety of video formats

That's about all I can offer you if you still have a problem post back.
