Is it going to screw my DivX? with their "digital rights management"?

it doesn't, just uncheck everything under the privacy tab.

does WMP offer full quality DivX playback and still have problems with VBR encoded mp3s? or are those horrible "problems" fixed. actually, old versions on WiMP(6.4 maybe) had DivX playback controls where you could increase the quality of playback...sadly later versions do not. i'm wary as to updating MS software(usually just gets slower and more bloated).

I actually like this vers, and I dare say the divx playback perf has increase for the better. I would recommend snaggin' at least to give it a try.

This version will not play my Divx back, furthermore there is no way to uninstall it. It sucks. Now im stuck with it and I have to use a 3rd party player to play my DivX.. Gee Thanks! I dident try it till I saw this thread, ah well you are not to blame, it's just annoying as hell.

Regards,
Mike

Yeah, there's no way to uninstall it, and I was afraid it hosed my logon (after I logged on after installing it, two error messages popped up, and it was odd. but then it logged on fine)...

Wonder if there's a 3rd party utility to kill it.

anytime I try to play a Divx movie it crashes the player. Some things iv'e noticed though, it launches extremely fast. Much faster then the old version. It also seems to have high quality streaming video.

Regards,
Mike
