Xvid/AVI playback issues

I'm having issues getting video on Xvid/AVI files. Sound works fine. Also, sound and video work fine with DVD's and TV mode. I'm using the Nvidia codecs. If I try to play the Xvid inside WMP, I get the "error downloading codec". I also installed the Windows tool, DECCHECK, and confirmed the Nvidia codec is my default selected. Any help is appreciated.

You need to download a Xvid codec and install it to play back Xvid files. You can also install FFDShow and I believe it'll decode xvid files as well.

Koepi's Xvid downloads:
