DVX Files: What to Do If You Don't Have DivX Movie Software

DivX Movie is typically associated with binary DVX files, so you might be mistaken for thinking that program is the only way to open a file with a DVX extension.

Either way, if you're stuck with a DVX file you absolutely have to open, keep on reading. We'll show you how to open it, even if you don't have DivX Movie software installed on your system.

Opening DVX Files without DivX Movie

Different software packages tend to sometimes share similar file types. DivX Movie is one of the popular programs that use the DVX file extension, so you should be able to use it to open your file. You might even be able to find others by doing a quick Google search.


A word of warning, though. Be sure to scan any free software you download with a malware checker before running it on your computer.

If You Have DivX Movie Installed

If this software package is already installed on your PC, but it still won't work to open your DVX file, you might have to check that the file associations are correct. Right-click on the file, select "Open With..." and then select DivX Movie. That will create an association between the DVX file extension and your chosen software.

Your DVX Might Be Corrupt

Finally, if you're still having problems opening your DVX file, download the file again or ask the sender to resend it. It's possible that your DVX file might be corrupt. As a last resort, contact the software developers to see if they may be of further assistance.
