How to repair corrupt DIVX video files
A video repair software is the only way to repair corrupt DIVX files. There are no manual methods to fix corruption in videos.
Nonetheless, you can try some workarounds if the videos are not playing on a media player. These are discussed later in the post.

Other solutions for DIVX videos not playing in Media Player
Get the supporting codec
Video file formats are all about codecs that interpret the file to play in a media player. So, DIVX files will not play, if the media player doesn’t have the supporting codec.
What you can do:
Either download the DIVX codec
Install a codec pack for wider file support
Play in DIVX or other supporting media player
Download/transfer from the source again
Interruption during download or transfer of videos can corrupt them. So, simply copy it again from the source on your system.
Convert DIVX format
Convert DIVX file to another format like MP4, AVI, or MKV, that can be played on multiple devices.
Update the PC drivers
Ensure you have updated PC video drivers and graphic cards. Windows Updates fix any Nvidia/Intel HD/AMD display problem. All your videos’ stuttering and display problems can be resolved after updating the PC drivers.
To automatically update the PC drivers: Follow Settings> Update & Security > Windows Update > Check for updates
Unable to play DIVX movies or animations? Your PC may be inept!
If your DIVX video files are high quality movies or 2D/3D animations, they require higher capacity graphics card, processor, and RAM. Ensure your system meets these criteria of playing graphic intensive videos. You can try playing such DIVX videos on another computer having powerful processor and RAM.
Tried all workarounds, still cannot play DIVX videos!
If the above manual methods prove to be ineffective, the high chances are your DIVX videos have gone corrupt. Take help of Stellar Repair for Video to restore the DIVX files to playable condition.
To Sum Up
DIVX is a popular file format that’s used to compress large videos in CD/DVD. Any kind of technical difficulty in watching them is not only annoying but may also indicate a permanent loss situation.
There are a few methods that can help fix such video playability issues. For instance, it may be due to absence of the required codec pack in the media player, or perhaps the PC drivers need to be updated (which should solve the problem unless it’s a graphic card upgrade requirement). It’s also possible that the DivX file turned corrupt while being processed or transferred or other such handling scenarios.
So, as an ultimate and overarching solution, it’s ideal to have a Video Repair software.
Because a good software should provision a more comprehensive feature set for a wider variety of video corruption issues (so, one tool covers the entire ground). And, will also help deal with more severe and challenging corruption scenarios.
