Has anybody been able to get DIVX5 videos to play in anything except for DIVX player 2.0? I have installed the codec, but no other player will play the video. They all play audio, but not video.

hmmm.. wut version of the codec did you install? Gotta get the 5.02's. And sometimes win media player doesn't play some videos for some reason, or it only plays the audio. So you can try using mplayer2.exe in the windows media player folder in prog files. :D

I have the 5.02 codec, and i have tried playing it mplayer2 and also in zoom player and the gdivx player. None of them work. I install the codec manually, and then try it and it doesnt work. mplayer2 tries to download a new codec (which doesnt work), even when i have already installed it. I have tried installing JUST the codec, and also tried installing it along with the divx 2 player. The only way i can get it to work is by using the divx 2 player. I have had this problems on two different installs of windows, using win2k.

Bare in mind, with Nimo installed, the vcd encoder in Nero Burning Rom will not function properly. It will encode everything upside down :D

Well, the full nimo pack fixed it for me, thanks guys. It seems that the normal divx5 download only has half of the codec, the half that THEIR plyare (which is crap by the way) needs to work, and not the half that everything else needs to work.

Is that the only problem with Nimo with Nero or are there others?

Thanks

yah, thats the player i use too, works great. Its strange though, the ONLY way i could get divx5 to work in zoomplayer was to install NIMO. O well, it works.
