Thanks in advance for help with this question.

These are the latest for Win 98 SE, not sure if they'll work on Win 95. Give it a shot and report back. Thanks

Hi again,

I experimented with a bunch of DivX Codec releases, and found out that DivX Codec Pro 5.0.5 works perfectly under Win 95C. Version 6.0 and above do NOT work, however. Hopefully someone in my shoes will find this info helpful.

Interestingly enough, the movie rip that I used for my trials was DivX 3 video-encoded, and WMA2 audio-encoded. This prompted me to dig up and install decoder for WMA2 audio - thankfully, I had it in my software archive.

More trials will follow, and results will be posted. Win 95 is so much fun, despite the occasional hiccups - for example, every now and then my machine hangs on shutting down.

Best to all :-)

@assenort @PROBLEMCHYLD

According to this archived link, 5.0.5 "requires minimum Windows 98", but @assenort got it working on Windows 95 C.

You could probably try 5.1 to see if that works, since the requirements are the same. It's a minor point release and may still work. I'm not at a Win95 C machine ATM to test).

Hi again :-)

For the benefit of the community and per the suggestion of @sdfox7; I tried DivX 5.1.1 Pro Codec on my Win 95C machine. It works flawlessly.

In the process though I hit some snags. Namely, when I first tried to play DivX/MP3 encoded video file, Windows Media Player loaded up some crappy InterVideo Audio filter (iviaudio.ax), and not the Fraunhofer MP3 filter that I wanted, thus producing a garbled and crackling sound. This necessitated me to get rid of the InterVideo crap. After some search on the Internets, I managed to do this by the following:

1.   Start/Run

2.   regsvr32 -u iviaudio.ax
3.   Delete iviaudio.ax from Windows\System

4.   Restart comp. After that, Windows Media Player loads up the MP3 codec to play audio as it should.

I also had to install Radium MP3 codec 1.263 (believe it is a hacked official Fraunhofer MP3 codec; had it in my archive, it is also available on the Internets).

Finally, InterVideo WinDVD 3.0 (my software archive is bottomless) can play perfectly single AND double-layer DVD disks. It is awesome.

The only remaining problem so far is that no version of VobSub that I tried works under Win 95C. Have to figure something else out in order to display subtitles.

Hope this info will help other people.

Best :-)
