Hey guys I have ripped all CD's from my Band of Brothers since I recently bought it. Now it's on my computer in .avi format neatly placed in folders:cool:

I install the XviD codecs because I over heard that the DivX codecs sucked. Now one problem, when ever I try to launch DivX it always uses its codecs and overwrites my XviD codecs so I deleted it and installed XviD again. It also didnt start up when I wanted to... It would just sit there and the dots would move... Anyway, I need to know a video player that can support MPEG4 or mp4 that can use the XviD plugins.

Help would be appreciated!

The best media player I've used is VLC Media Player.

Wikipedia article on it

It's the only media player I use, and it's supposed to support Mpeg4.

Here's a site with a list of XviD players. Just an option.

http://www.xvidmovies.com/players/ Note: You can also grab the codecs off that site. :)

OHNOES i just screwed up! Thinking XviD used MP4 I converted into MP4 files... It seems DivX and XviD use diffrent kind of .avi files. My CD ripper would rip into DivX .avi thus resulting in poor quality. I'll convert the other things to xvid and see what happens. Thanks for the help!

*Sigh*, why does no-one ever read the stickies?
