Hi, every time I go to play a DIVX video in Firefox and google chrome, it crashes. What can I do to fix it? I tried uninstalling both browsers and the DIVX player. Maybe I need to show my registry? If so, how do I do this?

Please help!

Hmm it may be the website or your computer. I don't really know but maybe you can wait for a little while like a day or two and see if it happens again. If it does, ask someone else for help.

Wait... DivX in a... browser... and why would you unistall... show registry...huh?

Do you just mean Firefox and chrome crash when you watch a video online, like youtube, or streamed media?

Firefox and Chrome only crash when I try to stream a video online through the DivX player. It works fine for youtube videos and other video streaming sites.

I saw that someone had the same problem and something about it being a registry issue was brought up. Heres the link:
Firefox & IE8 crashes when watching divx clips/mo...

Also to answer Computer Kid, I've been having this problem for going on 2 weeks now..nothing seems to be working.

The latest FF4 Beta 11 is the WORST one i've ever used.
It crashed EVERY 3 minutes. Watching a VIDEO = HANG

It made me permanently switch to chrome, where I have seen no crashes till now. And Chrome Version 11 beta has just made an appearance, available for download.

Software A lot.
Benchmark Scores Its fast. Enough.
I just uninstalled the web components, as even with the tweaks and dumping the 1+GB it had accumulated on my computer it did no good.


Guess thats why they call it BETA software.

New guy here. Figured I would share what works for me, so here goes. I've been using the FF4 beta's since the first came out. At about halfway through, divx, hulu, netflix, etc. were having stability/crashing/freezing problems. I tried all the fixes I could find, even the registry & config stuff (*fyi-don't mess with it if you don't know what your doing!), but they either didn't work, or worked only when they wanted. Divx added a few things to their download suite that don't play nice with the current crop of FF4b's. I ended up going to the divx site and downloading the 1.5.0 version webplayer (latest stable version before the last one). No problems since then, but turn off the automatic cache (causes some instability issues). The official line is divx won't try to make a fix for this until firefox is out of the beta stages. Hope this helps.
EDIT: here is an all in one fix: http://support.divx.com/faq/view/supportFAQen001/The DivX All In One Fix V1.81
and the page for older version players: http://support.divx.com/faq/view/supportFAQen003/DivX-Legacy-Version

You can play and stream DivX with VLC Media Player, which comes with a mozilla plugin so that it embeds into FF when needed.

Avoid the DivX web player and plug-in like the plague. one option is to install VLC. Another is to just look in the page source and copy the address of the video in your address bar and download it. After all it is just an avi container. If you have system codecs installed, you can play it with any player.

Hi there, I don't know what to do.

do you want me to post my registry too? if so, how do I do that?
Compare your REGISTRY to this one.


Find out what your missing and or change your registry settings to match that one.

I'm guessing something (a virus?) messed up my registry and prevented me from watching any DIVX movies. My browser kept on crashing and I was about to do a CLEAN INSTALL of windows. BUT, after changing my registry settings to the ones above and now everything works fine.

You can go do line by line. Look at all the values and make sure it matches.
