I'm trying to convert a mpg video to a DivX Avi file using Virtual Dub. Everything is fine until I hit 'Save Avi', and I get this message:
First of all, how did I get this hacked compression drivers? Second of all, how the hell do I get rid of these?You are trying to compress with a Hacked Compression Driver. This may cause Virtual Dub to act or crash unexpectedly. Proceed at your own risk.
Thanks in advance.

just ignore it. It just means that your encoding with divx 3.11, which is technically a hacked version of microsoft's mpeg4 codec. It used to say the same message for me if i encoded to divx.
Sounds like you have Crystal Studio Mpeg-4 hacked Divx codecs, go get the Nimo codec pack and install it should overright those codecs with Microsofts Mpeg-4 drivers, I had the same problem until I got this pack, now I run WIN98 so before I installed the NIMO Pack I went clicked on my computer, click on control panel and clicked on audio video driver codecs, inside your see one that says video codecs, click on the + to open and view all codecs
WARNING - be careful what you delete in here.
find the codecs that say KS MPEG-4 divx 1
KS MPEG-4 divx 2
KS MPEG-4 divx 3
click on each one at a time, click on properties and click on remove, remove these and nothing else, then reboot and install the Nimo pack, it has every divx, mpeg-4 and any other avi codec you can imagine.
All right, something messed up happened. I installed the Nimo Codec pacs, and when I try compressing the Audio, theDivX Audio
WMA Audio v1
WMA Audio v2
