where do I get CODECs?

I did a reformat a while ago and now can't play some of the movies I have.

I'm guessing they are divx, but I think I'm missing a couple other codecs too.

Is there a website that has all the popular CODECs for download. (the builtin downloader in media player never works for me.)

If you're using Windows Media Player, most of the codecs will download automatically - EXCEPT divx - which can be found at the address mentioned above:

Here is one of the best places I have found for downloading most if not all of the ...The other thing you can do is rightclick on the file that won't play and then select properties. Some will then offer you a preview tab. If you select this it will usually list the file you are missing that is necessary for playback.
