For DivX you currently need YUY2 support in xv:
  id: 0x32595559 (YUY2)
        guid: 59555932-0000-0010-8000-00aa00389b71
        bits per pixel: 16
        number of planes: 1
        type: YUV (packed)  

Try contacting the several DRI mailinglists and ask for YUY2 support for 3dfx 
cards, please report back on the subject.

If you can live with software scaling (slower and doesn't look that nice that 
xv hardware scaling does) install SDLlib (min. 1.1.7, we tested with 1.1.8 
and 1.2.0 [current]), change #undef SDL_NOXV to #define SDL_NOXV in 
libvo/vo_sdl.c and reconfigure and recompile mplayer.
