So does anyone know why are phones don't play Divx files consistently? I thought the Galaxy S device was divx certified but it is clear that there is no way my phone will play all Divx files. Does anyone know how to fix it by any chance or am I just doing something wrong?

Yeah I have used Rockplayer too actually and it plays all my Divx. I did notice a little stuttering on it every once in a while though, but it wasn't bad. The big thing though is since it uses CPU and not GPU to convert the video it actually wastes about 25% more power to play a divx video. I ran a test on it for the same exact film, just changed the codec from Xvid to Divx so that is how I came up with that number, just in case anywone was wondering

Can you tell me how you installed Rockplayer on your Captivate? I downloaded RP to my pc, then syncd with
Captivate and broght it over, but then got error msg: "Install Blocked...for security phone is set to block installation of apps not sourced in android mkt." Do have to root my captivate in advance of installing RP? Thanks!

Yeah if your phone is not rooted you can't install apps that way. Just go to the marketplace and search for Rockplayer and install from there. That is the easiest way.

Just put "Rockplayer" in the search field you should be able to find it. They have a free version and a paid version. I am suprised you can't find it but I would use the search option instead of trying to find out what category it is in. I hope that works. I just searched for it and it is still there.
