i'm running FC2 and the latest version of mplayer.
the player plays everything well exept for divx moviesi even installed al the WIN32 codecs and the divx codec from divx.com
whenever i try to play a divx movie it tells me "no stream found" or it freezes or it crashes... and other misc errors.
can anybody help me, i know its possible i used to play them on my old RH9.
i really dont wanna have to go into windows just to watch a movie

perhaps they're not encoded with DivX. Are you sure it's not the XVid codec?

I believe Mplayer in FC2 supports xvid. There is mention of issues with Mplayer and Divx5 on this page http://www.involution.com/fc2.php
