DivX Web Plugin

Anyone had any luck installing the DivX web plugin?

Mine just doesn't want to work.
I first went through the auto-install process, and that *seemed* to go ok, but even after a restart it was still inviting me to install the plugin.
Then I went and downloaded the executable installer from http://www.divx.com/divx/webplayer/index.php and installed the thing on my desktop. Still no luck.
I guess I need to somehow tell FF where to look for the plugin but I'm not sure where to do that.
Anyone care to have a go themselves can start here: http://movie6.net/movies2/fullmetal.html

Fix for the problem

I dont care what people say they keep debating on where the plugins go.. blah blah. I found out putting the DLLs in the same folder as Firefox itself makes the videos load. It will probably give you the nag screen 1 more time about installing the plugin but once it runs.. it works. That has been the way i fixed this problem on several installs of Portable Firefox. Maybe its just me.. but thats the only way I have found to make it work and it works every time.
