How To Get DivX Movies?

Tue Nov 13, 2001 6:57 am

I've recently gotten interested the DivX format for viewing DVD quality films. I was wondering where you folks find your DivX films; I prefer not to pay for that sort of a service.

I recently downloaded a movie that has DivX in its title but supposedly its .AVI format. When i open it with Windows Media Player, I can only hear the audio, no video. Why is this? I tried Quicktime but that doesn't work!

Help please!

Thanks,

You have to download the Divx codec inorder to view such videos. Divx videos are registered under the .avi extendion.

But doesn't Kazaa give you spyware? I've had bad bad experiences with spyware... maybe I'll just stick to WinMX.

Go to http://www.download.com and search for Divx to get the codec so you can view the video. The reason you can hear the sound is that it is in MP3 format. Use something like Morpheus to get the video, just remember to say NO to all the spyware during the installation.

You probably want the DivX 3.11 Alpha codec.

But beware, some of the codecs out there are illegal codecs.....but if you are downloading DivX movies in the first place, I doubt you are worried about legalities  Laugh out loud

Is it possible to put this movie on a CD-RW and view it on a DVD player?

Well, there's the rub. This DivX thing isn't actually the format pushed by Circuit City, where the DivX discs could be played only once in a DVD player. This DivX thing is a totally different thing that delivers DVD-quality video, and you still need a PC.

You can get programs which will convert the DivX into MPEG-2 or MPEG-1....they take a lot of pissing around, and will take hours (and I mean HOURS) to convert, which will then let you convert into VCD which will then play on most DVD players.

Check the above links for some info and links and stuff
