Question Problem entering codec settings

Hi folks,

Iīd appreciate your help with a little problem Iīve encountered: I cannot change any of the settings for the DivX-Codecs Iīve installed. I heard that normally you can enter the settings by just right-clicking on a divx-video-file, then entering advanced/properties/divx/codec. I tried doing this in WMP8 or the Explorer, but couldnīt enter the codec settings. (Also, when playing back divx-files in WMP8, all I get is a grey picture; thatīs why I want to enter the codec settings in the first place...).

So, if anyone knows how to fix this problem or help me understand, Iīd be grateful.

Unhappy Problems still...

But just because Iīm running a higher version of WMP means that I cannot modify any of the settings for the codecs Iīve installed??? I mean, the codecs arenīt really depending on the WMP to work, as I can use other DivX/Avi/whatever-players as well.

Why not use a different player? ZPlayer (?) lets you access the DivX settings..or is it zoomplayer?

Oddly enough, I can no longer change the properties of DivX files now myself! I suspect I'll have to re-install DivX 3.11 to get this back.

I assume DivX 4.11 messed something up, although I ran a program recently which installed the Angel-potion codecs without my knowledge. I thought I got rid of those, but....
