StageVu / DivX video on Bodhi Linux

Ankit Mittal

If you read my last post you will know I have been playing with Bodhi Linux lately. One of the selling point for this distro is it's minimalistic approach. However, that also means it doesn't come with some of the media packages that help stream all type of media - stagevu (DivX) included.

Fortunately it does not require lot of effort to get them all working. At-least for me it was quite quick.

The steps I followed are listed below:

For stagevu though divx4linux should work out of the box on firefox but if not click on "Tools" > "Manage Content Plugin" and select divx to play the plugin. Restart browser and that should be it.

Let me know your experiences and tips in comments.
