I'm doing a new installation in my new PC. I haven't yet installed the xvid codec and yet I can see Xvid movies.
I have the MMCompView program that displays all the codecs but I can't find the codec that is decoding my xvid avis.
I have Windows Media Player 10 and Powerdvd 7.3.3319a installed. I see that this last one has two divx decoder filters in MMCompView, but after uninstalling them I still can see my xvid avis.
I´m just curious to know which is the codec that is working now, and also I don't like very much having codecs in my computer without knowing them.
Thank you in advance.

That's a copy of what GSpot v2.70a says:
(src)---(A)---(AVI Splitter)---(B)--- (DivX Decoder Filter)---(C)---(Video Renderer)
Status: not rendered yet. Use(2) to render
I don't know how to interpret it. I think it says there's a Divx Decoder but I don't installed any. I mean I saw there was one installed with Powerdvd but I unistalled it with MMCompView
Move your mouse over in G-spot over the (DivX Decoder Filter). It tells you the name of the decoder. Then search for it in Explorer - you know how _bad_ many programs handle their uninstall. In your case that´s even fine...
PowerDvd installs mpeg2, divx, h264, ac3 decoder etc. I know many people who just install the latest PowerDvd in Trial Mode, copying then the needed codecs to a safe place and uninstall PowerDvd.
Re-register the codecs and you´re done.
Thank you. I did waht you said and I read: DXdec.ax
I found it in Program files\Cyberlink\PowerDVD\VideoFilter.
I can't delete it, but I hope that when I install the Xvid codec, this other one don't interfere.
Anyway, I think I'm going to look for a way to unistall it. I don't know how for the moment.
