    DVD and DivX playback software

    Does anybody know a SINGLE piece of software that can playback BOTH DVDs and DivX?
    Right now I am using PowerDVD (an old version) for DVDs and another DivX player but I would like to find one program for BOTH in order to be less complicated to control (not having to map more functions/buttons on MouseRemote).

    Does it support playback with all the current DivX codec versions (3,4 and 5)?

    Cenwesi,

    what do you mean? I should install PowerDVD for the DVDs and use Media player for DivX?
    I don't like windows media player but PowerDVD is very good- I 'll try it to see if it can playback both.

    we had this discussion a while ago did we not Charles?

    as charles said, PowerDVD/WinDVD/etc will install the required DVD decompressor software (the licensed bit) into your windows OS, then media player can play it.....
