ffmpeg does carefull checks to detect damaged parts and will hide them, divxds 
simply ignores errors and continues
for 90% of the errors divxds will show a total mess of ugly colored blocks 
while ffmpeg wont. for the remaining 10% divxds looks better
the problem is that div3 is no standart (no docs which mention exactly how 
things are supposed to work) so it is possible that a legal bitstream does 
trigger ffmpegs error detection in which case divxds would decode the file 
perfectly while ffmpeg wont, if thats the case then i would need to see more 
of these errors, so i can check if there is something in common ...
