I don't quite get it here: I downloaded the clip at the URL above,
and (apart from libavcodec) it plays perfectly with DIVX4 here
in windows environment (codec version 4.12).
So, yes, mplayer plays it fine with libavcodec (and possibly also with
divx4linux) but if THIS is divx 5, where is the difference with divx 4 ???
