    many thanks.. I don't know how to use the Divx thing.. how to use it? Just install it?

    I've got another question... how can I convert 3GP to a file that is compatible with Winamp?

    And another question... do you know any 3GP player?

    Many Thanks!!

    Try VLC as linked above. I am not sure about the 3GP format, so I would be incline to use one of the programs on the first page i linked above regarding converting it to a different format.

    If you just want a player to do it without any conversions, try google-ing for some other 3gp players. From my search, there doesn't seem to be many players which support this format, most likely because it is designed to be played in a mobile rather than on a PC. In which case try converting it.

    Winamp will play .avi files provided you have the codecs which i linked you at the very begining.

    Oh... the Divx Total pack? I tried to download that, but it's too big, I can't wait for a long time... I realized that its called "pack"... so does that means that I can download "only" the codec that plays .avi?

    Its only about 2.97MB... There isnt just ONE codec for playing avi files. Because avi isnt a format in inself. It is a container format that may include a .rm,.mpeg,.mpg,.mp4 video file and have a .mp3,.ac3,.ogg audio format. So it requires a few different codecs, hence when you look at the download page it says it conatins a number of codecs.

    When you install it, it is very easy to set up and u dont need to touch it again.

    As it is, the DIVX all in one pack is the smallest of the 3, it only includes the basics, rather than the K-lite MEGA codec pack with a billion codecs included.
