I have very little knowledge about DIVX movies and wondering how I can go about playing them.

I have 17 Divx Movies (dvd) that they say require a registered DIVX player..... I belive that these are the kind that you "pay per use" Is there software that will allow me to play them (unlock) on my PC? or are they...junk?

A friend that I work with bought them at a garage sale....not knowing that they were DIVX, He gave them to me thinking I might be able to do something with them.

I'll assume they are legal copies of something. If not we can help you no further.
To view them download the DivX codec from here
http://www.free-codecs.com/download/DivX_Free.htm
It's been a while since I installed it but during the install process, choose the free version. You do not need the DivX player either if it dives you the choice as this will allow you to watch them through Windows Media Player.

I see the small print on the back says it has a limited viewing period when new. You may be out of luck. You'll need that codec to try though.

When you buy these movies your machine is hooked to your phone line and you pay like $2.99 for a 48 hour period of unlimited vewing, then after 48 hours it becomes....a coaster until you pay another $2.99 From what i have found online. I was hoping someone has craked these things somehow.

By the way you cant even buy the DivX home players anymore...

Yes you can. DVD players are now more commonly having mpeg1, 2, 4, .avi etc playback. Mpeg 4 capable players play Divx movies.

That's the illegal bit we can't help you with. Read the rules.
