    Perian plays all Divx stuff back within the browser using Quicktime.

    What website is it? I'll test it out on my computer and see what the problem is.

    I PM'ed the site URL to you. I don't think the moderators would appreciate it if I posted it here.

    I see what you mean. Unfortunately I don't have a solution other than just downloading to your hard drive and using VLC to play them back. If that is not an option you might just have to bite the bullet and install the DivX plugin.
