    I downloaded the DivX codec, but WMP doesn't seem to notice that I have it. When I try to run a divx movie on WMP, it tries to download the codec from activex.microsoft.com, even though I'm supposed to have it installed already. It ends up failing and playing just the sound.

    Help?

    Hi cybergum

    I've seen this problem a few times and primarily found it to be the result of the file type. Avi file types sometimes seem to be an issue but whatever the case go to the folowing link and you'll find the latest div-x codec (5.03) -

    http://www.divxmovies.com/software/smrpatchsetup.zip

    If this isn't of any help try visiting Moviecodec.com. They have a codec search facility and some good articles about this issue.
