Marky is an unknown quantity at this point

ffdshow can be downloaded here:
The new (20030103ffdshow.exe) is the latest version and works quite well. ffdshow is a play back only codec. You don't need a DivX install to play back DivX videos, but you do need a DivX install to compress to the DivX standard - trouble is that DivX 5.03 won't play back DivX 5.02 or older files. ffdshow will.

I installed 5.03 on four of my systems with no problems. But the other systems had had so many problems that I went back to 5.01 on all systems. Also, any movies that you've compressed with 5.02 or older will not play back once you install 5.03. I don't understand why they went to this extreme. IMHO, the world needs a better DivX team then the current one - BADLY!!! They seem to be wandering all over the place now!! Probably why ffdshow has overtaken them.
