    About 400 Mhz CPU and 128 MB ram.

    It will play on slower systems, but usually not without audio synchronisation problems and choppy video playback.

    I agree pretty much on those specs, but thats not running xp (use win 98 or linux or maybe win 2000 instead) with xp you'd probably need about a 700 - 800 MHz and about 256MB ram

    Big resolution (640 X ***)+ You'll need 700mhz-1ghz+

    A Lower resolution (500 X ***)+ You'll need 400mhz+

    And a tip for playing divx movies on lower cpu's

    What i found is that when i played a movie on 800x600 it was slow but when i played it on 1024x740 it went smoother.
    Ohh noo!!! I make dribbles!!!

    if you have a CPU that falls below the recommended specs for DivX, you could get an Mpeg4/DivX decoder card (it&#39;s called the Sigma X-Card, i believe) which should be able to play Mpeg4 with a slow CPU. it&#39;s not really very useful for PCs with fast CPUs, but for old computers it does have a niche.

    may have to look into that, use an old machine that&#39;s sitting in the corner doing nothing ot play divXs
