divx movies from a disk

Post by DrKillgore »

I have searched forums, google, yahoo, and several other places to find out how to play a divx movie off of a dvd but can't find any info anywhere. I can play them from my hd with no problem but no luck from disk. Any ideas? thanks.

Are you trying to play a DivX movie stored as a avi (or what ever) on a DVD, or are you trying to play a DVD? First one I have no idea, second one you need a library installed, which I have forgotten the name of right now (libcssdvd or something)
