I have tried pretty much every tool there is and here is my appreciation of it:

1. Divx Doctor: Great utility, but one must have 3ivx installed. It works well, pretty quick, but you must trash the 'translated' file. Using this, Classic and the WMA audio extension is the only way I've been able to watch divx movies with wma audio.

2. Divx Validator: Currently the best, because you 'fix' (basically do some tweaks to the audio), but the file you create you can actually keep and still share with others (say windows users); as it's still a valid Divx Avi.

3. Divx Tool: perfect tool for finding out if you _can_ play many files (for example MP42 can't be played on mac yet, dont know about videolan though). Sometimes even works for fixing damaged (or incomplete) avi files.

4. VideoLan. It's nice, it's free, works well. Quality is not the highest though, quality will be much higher using quicktime.

To watch full screen, use full screener by our own Mikey-San (it's in the tips here on the site, basically an applescript to watch stuff full screen). No need for QT Pro.
