    Play divx encoded file in media centre

    I have some films that have been encoded with the divx codec, I wish to
    watch them in media centre.
    Due to the problems I had before when I installed the divx player I do not
    wish to install the divx player software.
    Is there a codec pack that would do the job for me, or will I have to
    install the divx player software to be able to watch any film that has been
    encoded with the divx codec???

    Any help/ advice or links would be gratefully accepted.

    Do a custom install of Divx. Deselect all but the Divx codec's. You don't
    need/want the rest.

    During the divx install, do a CUSTOM install and ONLY install the codec. Be sure
    to get the latest version from divx.com. The other components of the install
    have known problems with Vista.
