    soo, i have attempted to watch several videos via safari that require DivX that say I don't have it installed. It is installed. I decided to try Firefox and it worked. Does DivX just not work with Safari?

    The DivX plug-in is not a Safari plug-in, it is a QuickTime codec. Do you have the QuickTime plug-in set to handle .avi video? Using Belt and Suspenders Theory, it is a good idea to also download and install the Perian codec suite.
