If you can’t view the DIVX file by double-clicking it, try opening it in a different program. Some of the most popular programs for opening DIVX files are DivX Movie, and Movie Encoded with DivX-codec. Check out the developers’ websites, download one or more of these programs, then try to open your DIVX file again.

Get a Clue From the File Type

One file extension can be used for multiple types of files. Knowing the type of file you have can help you find out how to open it. Most DIVX files are categorized as Video Files, which can be opened by numerous software packages. See if you have a program already installed on your computer that’s designed to open Video Files. Hopefully, this program might also work with your DIVX file.


You can find out which type of file your DIVX file is by looking at the file’s properties. Just right-click the file icon and select “Properties” or “More Info.” On a Windows computer, the file type will be listed under “Type of File”; on a Mac, it will be under “Kind.”

Contact a Developer

Nobody knows more about file extensions than software developers. If you can’t open your DIVX file using any of the usual programs, you can contact the program’s software developer and ask them for help. Find your program’s developer in the list below:
