    *.WMV DivX encoded? Strange quirk in *.WMV playback.


    Okie dokie. I've got some files I'm trying to play.
    They are supposivly *.WMV files. However, they're also labled as DivX encoded in their titles.

    Now, trying to play these in Xine, I get some interesting errors.
    Code:
    The source seems encrypted, and cannot be read (Media Stream Scrambled/Encrypted)
    from Xine.

    From a similar file I get a different set of problems.
    Code:
    [wmv1 @ 0x1b81aec]invalid picture type
    [wmv1 @ 0x1b81aec]header damaged
    [wmv1 @ 0x1b81aec]error, slice code was 1
    "etc for 80 lines or so"
    From Shell

    Now, before you ask. Yes, there is a Win32 folder in /usr/lib/win32.
    Contents as follows:
    Code:
    3ivxdmo.dll   divxdec.ax    lhacm.acm       QuickTimeEssentials.qtx
    acelpdec.ax   divx.dll      m3jpeg32.dll    QuickTimeInternetExtras.qtx
    apmpg4v1.apl  huffyuv.dll   m3jpegdec.ax    QuickTime.qts
    apmpg4v1.dll  i263_32.drv   m3jpegenc.ax    tm20dec.ax
    asusasv2.dll  iccvid.dll    mcmjpg32.dll    tssoft32.acm
    asusasvd.dll  icmw_32.dll   mpg4c32.dll     voxmsdec.ax
    ativcr2.dll   imaadp32.acm  mpg4ds32.ax     vp31vfw.dll
    avimszh.dll   imc32.acm     msadp32.acm     win32
    avizlib.dll   ir32_32.dll   msg711.acm      wma9dmod.dll
    divxa32.acm   ir41_32.dll   msgsm32.acm     wmadmod.dll
    divx_c32.ax   ir41_qc.dll   msh261.drv      wmspdmod.dll
    divxc32.dll   ir50_32.dll   msms001.vwp     wmv8ds32.ax
    divxc32f.dll  ir50_qc.dll   msvidc32.dll    wmv9dmod.dll
    divxcfvk.dll  ir50_qcx.dll  mvoiced.vwp     wmvdmod.dll
    divxcvki.ax   l3codeca.acm  qdv.dll         wmvds32.ax
    divxcvki.dll  l3codecx.ax   qtmlClient.dll
    Now, I don't know if it's something I don't have configured correctly, or if the WMV DivX encryptions aren't fully supported yet. But I'd really like a clue as to where to go from here.

    Thanks.

    Well, the question is now moot. But for the record it was running Fedora Core 3 and a recent distro of Xine.

    I've jumped to Mandrake over the weekend, so if anyone's still scratchin' their head at this one--I'm still curious to know what'cha thought up.

    divxc32.dll

    I feel for you too. I have been searching for a week for help on the same thing.

    I am using Suse Pro 9.3.

    Maybe your files have DRM, they cannot be played in Linux if this is the case look here www.defectivebydesign.org

    maybe a DRM

    Well I am a noob to Linux. I do not know if there is a DRM and do not know how to check.

    Adam - I went to this site and installed the files and it works for me. I guess I need a lot more library/codec.

    Note:
    My Suse Pro 9.3 is a newly installed with very little installed or setup. Just Apache, PHP 4, MySQL, Firefox, NaviCat, and Thunderbird.

    If you bought them from the internet, they have DRM
