is it a big secret? I will download the videolan software and all the codecs but where does one find movies? do i need another program like limewire? or is there a better faster one for divx?

Thanks

Limewire is acceptable for finding divx movies, but their are three things that you must keep in mind. 1)DivX files have the extension .avi on them, so when you look for them download the .avi's. 2)DivX is not that good of a format. Atleast I don't think so. Sure it's small, but there is a noticable hit in quality. 3)Downlading copywrited movies is illegal. Sure it's tempting, but let's not get the movie industry in the same position as the music industry...

I run a KDX (www.haxial.com) server by the name of AnimeNation; all I have is DivX movies, but they're Anime, so if that's not your thing...But there are plenty of other servers that do have them. To play them, download these:
