A windows XP Pro compute, according to Gspot, http://www.afterdawn.com/software/video_so...tools/gspot.cfm , has multiple codecs for both Divx and Xvid installed. While that might explain why certain AVI files have: jerky playback, incorrect color, lightening shaped bright shimmering threads ... it doesn't provide much information on how to resolve the issue. The issue is not player specific; it happens in WMP, VLC, and JetAudio.

What advice or RTFM type sites would you recommend one reference to resolve codec conflicts? Short of installing this-or-that codec-pack? At this time "uninstalling" from add/remove programs is not an option as all listed codec (packs) have already been uninstalled to no avail.

I thought installed FFDshow pack, http://sourceforge.net/projects/ffdshow , would simply "take over" but no. On this particular computer this AVI issue "suddenly" appeared. No the user doesn't use glitzy P2P networks. The system is otherwise clean.


thanks for your help

Get Irfanview at:

Then if you want to play DivX compressed videos
Go Here:


Then scroll down untill you see divX, (or press ctrl+f)
Then from the site it takes you to dowload it, then if you dont want divX player installed, go to custom install uncheck it, then you should have the video codec, for divx/xdiv avi's, and you can play them irfan view with much better quality.
