    Any time I try to run a DivX movie in these programs, it crashes. Also, in Firefox, the player says it cannot connect to the video, or it doesn't exist, even though it most definitely exists.

    I have uninstalled and reinstalled. It worked once, but no more.

    I've found no useful information on the DivX or Firefox websites.

    Does anyone know a solution? It's annoying me senseless.

    I will agree with you that the DivX plugin tends to instantly crash Safari, but I have had no trouble running embedded DivX movies in Firefox. Not sure what the big deal is with Safari :D

    This hasn't worked. It's still broken.

    Does anyone have any fixes?
