    hello everyone,

    I have a film, I can watch in any software, I have tested with nero
    showtime, vlc player, and windows media player, and I can watch it in
    any of them

    I used the program gspot to see the codecs it has, and didn´t say
    anything about them, it says codec status undeterminded, I paste the
    screenshoot here to watch it more clearly:

    the extension of the video is .divx, but I could watch other films
    with divx codecs in my computer

    How can I make this film work?

    Thank you and Cheers!

    Reread your first paragraph.

    What does "make this film work" mean?
    In the first paragraph, you said that you can watch it
    on any of your players. What is your question exactly?

    Ellie, I'm guessing that you meant to type CAN'T where you typed
    CAN.

    Is this right?

    If so, perhaps you just need the most recent Divx decoders (or
    player)?

    Divx - MPTIIW (more problems that it is worth) Use Xvid and ask
    it to decode Divx.

    I say this because I am having an ongoing dialogue with Divx
    support regarding consistent crashes while transcoding HDTV
    captures. Unbelievably Dr. Divx (as well as VDub-MPEG2)
    transcodes what the PAID for most recent converter will not.
    Their stuff is decidedly faster but incredibly unreliable.

    I meant that I usually watch all type of films, with any player,
    except this film, I didn´t finished the sentence

    yes, now I installed the last divx version and I can watch it in any
    player, I thought I had it.....
    anyway, I would like this film to have other codec than this one, I
    guess I can´t decode it myself , since I´ve already downloaded it?

    so now that I know that about divx, I won´t use it, if I can avoid it,

    Thank you......!
