You probably want OpenDivX, the (maybe?) DFSG-free DivX?
Here's the project for Linux, which does build on PowerPC:
You can build the library and an XMPS plugin. Unfortunately, XMPS
doesn't build right now for PPC, due to an easily corrected makefile
problem. Also unfortunately, the DivX plugin doesn't really work too
well on XMPS (but it does do something!). Is there any other program
we could use instead of XMPS? (vlc, xine, ?)
