Default Video won't play

I am trying to play the pure pwnage videos (http://www.purepwnage.com/episodes.html) on my computer but when I try to play them I get an error message saying "Divx player has encountered a problem and needs to close." I have tried using windows media player, and real player. I have updated all the programs. And I have tried downloading from a different server. Any suggestions on how to fix this?

"Divx player has encountered a problem and needs to close."

Divx is a codec that is probably needed to play the video.

Open Add/Remove programs from the Control Panel, uninstall Divx, and it's player and then go to the website, and re-install it. You may find that'll fix the problem

http://www.divx.com/divx/play/

Just make sure you select to not use the PRO codec when intalling, because I think that has a time limit on it.

Its saying something about the Divx player, like thats trying to open the video files.

Download that driver up there, but DON'T install the DIVX Player along with it. Any difference?

Plus, if you are streaming from that website, actually save them from the Internet, onto your harddrive first, and open from within the program.
