I'm also facing the same problem in Real Player, but it doesn't open in Media Player or Quick Time either. Someone please inform.

I tried Divx Fix and I couldn't get it to work for me...I don't know how to fix this real play bad avi source...all the other players won't even play my avi movie not even DIVX player. So what do I do? I am trying this new Japanese product called TMPGEnc to convert it to mpeg far it is converting it and letting me see it too..but I don't know what it will do when it gets to that bad sector in the avi movie.

If your using xp you need to run regedit and delete a key. then you can run DivxFix to see if there is a problem.
