Installing DIVX codecs for VLC

Submitted by IronWilliamCash on April 15, 2007 - 9:38pm

Sorry if it's a noob question, but is there any way I can get DIVX installed with the portable version of VLC? If so any hints on how to do so ? I didn't see anything in the forum or the FAQ page about this. Thanks for any input

BTW: I run portable appos off a 160 gig external hard drive so space is not an issue.

DivX and Xvid are built into VLC. Unless you're using the newer proprietary DivX codec -- which no one should be, since it's not compatible with anything except the closed-source DivX player.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

They say DIVX (1/2/3) is supported.

Sorry about that, apparently it works, but not on all computers, maybe it's a problem with the other comp I was using. Thx for the input!
