Wink well ...

Well that is only the codec
if they are *.tgz you must
do a (as root)
tar -zxvf divx4linux501-20020418.tgz
cd divx4linux-20020418/
If you want a player then you must download mplayer from
and the win32codecs from
1.Copy the win32codecs (after tar -jxvf w32codec.tar.bz2) in /usr/lib/win32/
2.Go in the Mplayer dir (After tar -jxvf MPlayer-0.90rc4.tar.bz2 ) and do a :
./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-gui ;make ;make install
3. Install the default skin (else won't work)
tar -jxvf default-1.7.tar.bz2
and copy the all default dir into /usr/share/mplayer/Skin

If ok then do ./mplayer movie.avi -fs
or gmplayer (visual)
Eh if you want
subtitles then you must do other things
PS: My god is harder than installing sendmail !!!
