I did some more testing.

I installed the Nimo Codec Pack Build 7 (http://nimo.titanesk.com/modules/news/) and DivX511 and I got XviD back, but then Matroska stopped.
So I reinstalled Matroska but then XviD crashed again and I found out that DivX5+ also makes WMP9 crash now.

So now I am stuck into 2 choices:
1. Able to play XviD and DivX with no Matroska playing
2. Play Matroska files, but no DivX and XviD

For me the choice would be 1. or I am doing something wrong in the bigger picture. :S

I got a problem after installing the latest version of Matroska with playing XviD coded .AVI files.
I installed the Matroska pack and was able to play the .MKV files in WMP9, but when I start an XviD coded .AVI file WMP9 crashes.

I removed the Matroska pack, but stil WMP9 crashes on XviD coded .AVI even after re-appling Koepi's build XviD and a reboot.
(just tested with WMP6.4 but that one also crashes on XviD coded .AVI files)

Is there anyway to get them both to work or just the XviD coded files?
I am getting a little desperate now on this as Matroska did more harm then helping me with playing .MKV files :(
And half of the Anime files I get via Newsgroups is XviD coded these days :(

Any ideas on how get this all working again?

Thanks for your time.
