im having trouble playing divx movies on the internet like stage6... the video plays up to only a fraction of the movie and completely just stops it doesnt buffer or anything it just cuts off and when i press play it starts over. How do i fix this?

same problem here more or less. My internet connection isnt that great so usually when i watch divx webplayer movies I pause it for a bit in the beginning so it can buffer and isnt rebuffering every 5 seconds.

problem is soon enough it stops completely and says an error like "cannot locate source" or "source not found" or something like that and it starts all over.

basically as of right now if I want to stream a divx movie I have to reboot to windows.

Have you installed the Ubuntu-restricted-extras. They are available in the repositories, you can find by searching in Synaptic package manager.
