I have 2 boxes one xp pro and my win 98 se box both have divx 5.02 installed and the proper version of M$ media player when I play an avi or divx file on the xp box it looks great ( asus cusl2-c board, p-3 , 800mhz 512 mb pc 133 ram geforce 2 pro 32mb) on my win98 box however the same files have really bad quality, moire striping, colors bleeding all over etc ..( soyo dragon ultra, ati 8500 retail ( catalyst 9039 drivers) 512 mb pc 2700 ram p-4 2.0a) I have reinstalled media player and divx and the vid drivers, tried many different quality\speed settings for the vid drivers but still looks like crap

any ideas ??

have you tried using "the playa" bundled with divx?
also, you may want to try a differnt version like 4.11....my friend also had some divx 5 probs.

Try directly downloading the CODECS from the Media Player section at the Microsoft site, you have to look for it but it is there.

You never know what you can do until you try.
