I second this
Authored by: Sixkiller on Oct 08, '02 08:57:45PM

This hint is indeed wrong. The Divx Validator that now comes with the codec, fixes pretty much every divxed .avi that I drop on it. Setting the type and creator may help QuickTime realize its supposed to be a media file, but will not fix mp3 audio tracks or decoding probs.

Some more info about my tip
Authored by: patashnik on Oct 09, '02 07:43:37AM
The tip never states that DivX movies should not be run through DivX validator or something similar first; it merely provides a method of restoring the creator/type attributes of DivX files of which these attributes were stripped.

Without these attributes, Quicktime uses the wrong plugin for DivX avi's, which leads to the usual audio problems.
