I need that dx50 codec.
any idea where i can dl it. thancx
can’t seem to play the video in these movies, only sound, and media player can’t seem to dl a codec on its on.
the same problem with me too
i tried to play it in divx player but i cant
actually the web help in WMP leads to the site divx.com but the installation does not complete and again the same problem!!??
can anyone reply asap
!:) dx50 is fourcc code for the DivX5.xx codec - you can download the Standard (free) DivX 5.1 codec from here:
If you had trouble installing it I would suggest that you go to control panel - add and remove programs - and see if it lists an installation
for the DivX Codec - if so I would first remove it and then try a reinstallation.
If it’s not listed in add/remove programs then (only if you have had problems with a new installation) in controll panel go to 'system' then click on the hardware tab then click on device manager -- scroll down to sound, video and game controllers and click on the plus then right click on video codecs and click on properties then click on the properties tab of the box that opens and see if you have DivX.dll listed as one of the video codecs - if so then I would highlight it and click on remove --- Once that has been done then you should be able to reinstall the codec from the dl obtained from the site above.
Good Luck :)
thank you Duck.
Your advice worked perfectly
Very much thanx, worked perfect for me
OH! thanks for the tip I searched all over the web for dx50 and after a while I landed here and read what the others had Written... I´m Downloading it now I hope it will work for me too.
Just saying thanks for the info, all sorted. ta gang!!
thanx a lot! i found this page surfing 'round the web searchin for info... it just worked great! byez!
I have been having the same type of problem with my DivX player. I try watching an episode of “Invader Zim” and the player says that the episode was encoded with the DX50 fourcc codec. After that, I looked up DX50 codec and found this and did what Duck said. I uninstalled everything DivX I had installed and reinstalled them. Again, it said the DX50 codec was missing.
Even after doing everything involving 'System' within the control panel, and reinstalling again, the DX50 codec is still missing.
“Video data: FOURCC code “DX50”
You may need to install a new video codec on your computer to watch this video."
i did every thing that duck suggested and it did nothing. yo duck got any other suggestions?? i’m open to anything.
Same here. Downloaded DIVX511Bundle, 4cc DX50 not found. Installed on my fresly reinstalled box - the same. Serious bug?
NE1 know where 2 get codec DX50 for windows media player?
Yeah same here i cant find dx50 for windows media player anywhere. So do I just need to dl DivX player?
I just installed DivX 5.2 and played my previously unplayable avi no problems - thanks! Now I just have to figure out how to translate the soundtrack from Spanish to English :)
There’s a link four posts down where you can get the codec.
Here it is again http://www.divx.com/divx/
there is a problem if you install divix you get gain installed as well.
I chose not to get Gain and didn’t get it.
Do a reboot after re-installing the codec.
I followed ducks advice but got nowhere then tried a reboot and it worked.
thank you worked for me too
THIS IS A KNOCK OUT!
GOD BLESS YOU
THIS WORKS GUYS
