I'm currently using MPlayer 0.90 (non-CVS), downloaded as SRPM from the main 
site. The problem is: playback of AVIs compressed using DivX (generally v3)  
is scrambled. Looks like the display is torn into horisontal linear chunks 
and these chunks are slightly moving and sometimes overlapping each one.

This happens with almost all divx avi movies of high bitrates, fast movements 
and if using -vo xv.
I don;t use other vo because they all go too slow.
NOTE: This implies to XVideo ONLY!!! X11 is ok, but slow.

All other formats and codecs  (supported :) __go well__ (MPEG1,2 QuickTime and 

Audio: OSS and ALSA output -- doesn't matter -- still so

IMHO current source of FFmpeg is buggy, since libdivxdecore.so (divx4, odivx) 
works well too
(although weeeeryyy sloooow)

I never tried using Windows codecs for that :))

One more important thing: i have xine installed and all those DivX movies go 
well there :)
Look, i'm MPlayer fan but what is all that about?
