Default Problem with playing a *.divx file.

I have downloaded a movie and its in *.divx format.
I tried to play it with the divx player but it says:
"The file you r attempting to open does not appper to be a divx video file. The file may be another media type, or maybe corrupted in some way...".
Since when is there a *.divx ending to files, and how do i play those files? Is it really corrupted, and if so can i fix it?

Thanx in advance.

You can also try renaming the file to either .avi or .mpg
Did you know you can SEARCH the forum? Fixes common problems too:

Also search on the whole Digital-Digest website:
