Are they the same divx videos that used to work?  If not, don't assume that 
they should.

Otherwise, try running kaffeine from the console, to see what messages you 
get.  Also, try xine, since it uses the same engine, and maybe mplayer too.  
Another thing is that you could try rebooting, in case your xv or x11 driver 
somehow got messed up.  It does *sound* OK from judging from the way you say 
that mpeg2 vids play alright, but it's worth checking, nonetheless.
