DivX Codec

Sometime back Anand posted about DrDivX and I decided to give it a try. I have so far been a big fan of GordianKnot, but lets face it: GordianKnot's interface is really a pain in the rear part of the anatomy. After downloading and installing DrDivX, I realized it requires DivX codec.

As I prefer Mplayer as my default media player, I had to download the package from DivX.com and during the installation, the EULA threw up this:
SOFTWARE INSTALLATION: Components bundled with our software may report to Licensor and/or its affiliates the installation status of certain marketing offers, such as toolbars, and also generalized installation information, such as language preference and operating system version, to assist Licensor in its product development. No personal information will be communicated to DivXNetworks or its affiliates during this process. Licensor may in the future offer additional components (such as a toolbar) through our version checking/update system.
Arrgh spyware! Et-tu DivX??
