Why does my DivX Plus player freeze when I play VidX videos?

nicky leahy January 13, 2011

I have DivX Plus player installed, there is no problem streaming flash videos, but just recently the system freezes on VidX videos. Have tried uninstalling and reinstalling to no avail. Any ideas ?

    You should really try ffmpegbox's SwiftPlayer, it's by far the fastest and least resource demanding one and can play nearly(maybe exactly) any file format.
    I try to play some HD 1080P high resolution videos using my laptop(1.60 GHz CPU, 512 MB Memory, Windows XP), no video player other than SwiftPlayer can do the job!
    BTW, SwiftPlayer never uses the hardware acceleration on the graphic card, so you will not encounter strange problem due to it.

    Do you mean XVID videos?

    change the compatibility setting by right clicking on DivX Plus Player and selecting Properties->Compatibility->Change to “Windows XP (Service Pack2)”, check "Disable visual themes", check "Run this program as administrator".

    In order to play DivX movies you need to install the DivX® codec, DirectX and a media player which supports the codec. We recommend using Windows Media Player 6.4 or higher to play DivX movies. For information how to install the DivX® codec, goto the DivX codec section.

    You could try using VLC media player instead, that's what most people use. It supports almost every file format out there and is very customizable. (and yes, it's free!)

      Another vote for VLC here. Best video player ever.
