    Post divX on PII 266

    I was just curious to see if anyone might know how a PII 266 will handle divX decoding? The system (the PII) i'm installing in my car will play DVDs fine with software decoding, but I know mpeg-4 is heavily compressed. I would test it out by my system is in the process of installation and in pieces everywhere. The reason I'm asking is because I've read threads where people have 450mhz k6-2s with choppy divX decoding. Thanks.

    I played DiVX on a Celeron 300a (@300) like glass with my ATI AIW128... On my girlfriends PII 300mhz Compaq (ick) with a intergrated 2mb ATI (IIRC) forget it. Choppy as poooo.

    How do you play DivX on a DVD player? Is that really possible?
