The Playa is sort of the "official" DivX player, made by the people at Project Mayo
, the same people behind the new official DivX codec. The Playa is being built with DivX;-) users in mind. Because of the feedback from the community, features like progressive download, and the dreaded broken avi file work when using "The Playa". Previously it took separate tools just to accomplish this and there was no progressive download that existed for avi files on Windows. Look at the Docs section for feature details. Includes the latest version of the DivX 4.x Codec.
Please note that this is a general multimedia player for playing back AVI files. Different AVI files may be encoded with different "codecs" (compressors and decompressors ; COders and DECoders), so by having an AVI player, it doesn't mean you can play every single AVI file in the world (you'll need to separately download and install the codec for the AVI file as well).
