    I am having some problems with codecs and seem to have an enormous
    number of codecs and DX codecs installed according to DXMan and

    Presently I am finding that a movie plays back with very bad
    audio/video sync. It is an XVID file according to GS pot. I have
    removed all the DX and regular XVID codecs and even after a restart
    the file still plays! What's happening?

    Does gspot allow you to render the movie even after you've apparently removed
    all XVID codecs? Does gspot tell you where the codecs are?

    GSpot says the film video codec is xvid and if I double click the file
    it plays in any player I choose; BSPlayer, MediaPlayer etc.

    It's weird as I have no removed every trace of an XVID codec that I
    can see.

    Is XVID also known as some other codec/fourcc ?

    If you download and run AVI2DVD, when you load your XVid AVI, the
    program will list the appropriate codecs available on your system, as
    well as identify the particular codec selected (by default) by AVI2DVD.
    There are many XVid codecs out there, and obviously will have to have
    different names.
