Currently I am running Warcraft III on my Intel MacBook without much issue, however, this is a very recent development. When I first installed the game it would crash seconds after launch before the intro video even played.

I went around and round with Blizzard support for two weeks on this issue, and it turns out the reason I had this issue was due to a “third party Divx codec.” So, while I am happy that Blizzard support was able to nail this one down for me, I want to know if there is another way I can get Divx working on my laptop and have Warcraft III run at the same time.

I should also mention at this point that I was using the official Divx codec from the Divx.com website, and there is to my knowledge no other way to view Divx encoded files on OS X.

Any ideas?
