Weird Problem involving DivX

Hey,

Well DivX is doing something really wierd compression wise with my .AVI's and it is starting to bug me. I have never had a problem with playing AVI's in Windows Media Player (WMP) because DivX did all the conversion using its own set of codecs, but recently I upgraded to the new DivX 6.7 and when I play a .AVI in WMP, it resizes it, but completely unlike what you would expect ...

It doesn't resize the hieght but it squishes the width by about 2-3x its original. So now I have a tall squished video in WMP when I play a .AVI ... of course they work fine when played in DivX Player but I would like to be able to play them in WMP again ...

anyone had this problem now or before and would love to help, much appreciated ...

uninstall dvivx and install something like klite code pack (basid) from free-codecs.com. This should resolve the issue.

My DivX and its codecs are fine, and I wouldnt uninstall it for good, thats besides the point though.

The problem was the AVI file itself, so no need for this topic nemore. Thanks for the help though
