For the latest version of DivX, please refer to this DivX Codec page.
OpenDivX is an open source initiative to develop a new MPEG-4 codec (DivX Deux) - currently, a wide range of sources/binaries are available on the official site for the codec and players, on a variety of OS platforms. Note that this codec is current in very early stages, and therefore, performance and stability isn't that great yet (although it is still very very good).

DivX Codec For Windows 4.x is the based on the work done in OpenDivX (but with a new "non open-source" licensing scheme), a released codec that you can use under the Windows environment.
Most movies on the net are encoded with the DivX 3.11 Alpha codec
, and it is recommended that you install DivX 3.11 Alpha codec
as well (both can be installed at the same time). When the DivX 4.x install program prompts you whether to playback all 3.x encoded content, you should answer no, and if you have the DivX 3.11 Alpha codec
installed, you'll be using it to playback 3.x encoded content instead.
There are also other version of the DivX codec, available for different operating systems :
DivX For Apple Mac
DivX For Linux
DivX For Windows 3.11 Alpha
