divx is quite stable as a codec.. i remember the last nimo i installed had a duff version of xvid codec (xvid is way too open source so there are too many versions out there).

The k-lite pack gives good results in my experience. I'd be wary of using real player alternative if you have a mp3 player that uses realplayer. it prevents you from ever being able to install a normal version of real player on your machine.

You need the divx codec. http://www.divx.com. I think there must be an echo around here.

Re. the "skier", I don't think we should ban him (or like minded people). Rather, ask them to stay at the end of the skate, where there is more space. Separated from the main skate (behind the back marshalls), but in front of the bicycles. I think that the Paris skates do the same to skateboarders, etc.

Doesn't this cost money, or am I being blind in not finding a free download...?

Erm, maybe this link will help, it's from halfway down the "DivX" tabbed page, under "Standard DivX Codec (Free)".

Don't want to ban him just his poles. BTW the poles are even more dangerous for bicycle front wheels than they are for other skaters.

Nah, I think we should ban him. I mean being seen with those things is just, well, embarrasing.

You want to talk embarassing - Bring back Elvis and get Mr Springy Boots on the skate.
