Default Audio playback but no video in Windows Media Player

I'm trying to play a divx movie but I only get audio when I play it in Windows Media Player. It attempts to download a codec, but fails and I get the visualizations. I tried playing it in GDivx Player and Divx Player 2.0 Alpha but neither can play it. Any suggestions on what I should do?

Check what codec is needed via Virtualdub's File Information.
1. Open file in Virtualdub
2. Go to File -> File Information. Post what you see here.

Default Audio but no Video

Ok so I tried to open the file in VirtualDub and it couldn't open it so I never got to go to File Information. But the error message I got I'll type below.
-----------------------------------------------------------
VirtualDub Error

Couldn't locate decompressor for format 'XVID' (unknown)

VirtualDub requires a Video for Windows (VFW) compatible codec to decompress video. DirectShow codecs, such as those used by Windows Media Player, are not suitable.
