bond is an unknown quantity at this point

divxplayer uses its own internal mpeg-4 decoder (based on divx5 of course)

there are some ways to solve the green picture issue:

1) it is widly accepted on most boards that the green picture was caused because some codec packs (namely nimo codec pack) fucked up the system registry!

that' why i wrote in my first thread that you should
- uninstall all codec packs (not only the xvid codec)
- clean the registry (for example with regcleaner)
- and install the xvid version directly from the developers

by some people this helped against the green picture, by others this didnt and they had to format their system and reinstall it to absolutely solve the registry issue - i am sure they will never even touch a codec pack...

2) another way that can help is to install ffdshow (which is then used to decode your video files)

3) a third way can be to let divx5 decode the problematic xvid file ->
in koepis xvid version there is a small tool called fourcc changer or so! open your problematic xvid in there and change the fourcc to divx or dx50

of course you will have to install divx5.0.5 first
