    I think Flip4Mac is for playing Windows Media. There is a DivX plugin that works great for me. You can get it from the site.

    There are plenty of ways of playing divx on OS X. hit up version tracker and type in Divx. OR you can get VLC www.videolan.org That is what I use and I love it. Plays DVDs and just about any video format you throw at it (except wmv's... but they suck anyhow)
