If you download the (to the best of my knowledge) only divx codec for osx at

http://wolk.datashed.net/gems/mich/divosx.tgz

and place it in the quicktime folder in you main library (not in your home directory), divx movies will play like a dream. A bad one, but nevertheless...

Another tip is to download the 3ivx codec at

http://www.3ivx.com/codec/3ivx_D3.5_OSX.dmg.sit

This time, the dream will be dark and horrifying, but it is a cool, technology. Even smaller than divx. Installation instructions remain the same. Cheers
