It won't play the current stable release but you should try downloading the latest development snapshot, aka Beta, from the DivX labs site: http://labs.divx.com

It plays fine on my mac, It seems that I can't register the dvd player I watch movies on (which play "non-official" divx disks  just fine) unless I have the windows version of DIVX.  I'd rather watch the short on my 106' projector than on my 17' computer screen, but hey, I'm wacky like that.

Really? You can't register a device in the Mac version of the software? That seems odd.

Are you using the latest beta? Maybe that's a recent feature?

I accidentially purchased the MP3 version, OOPS instead of the Divx version.

So, I go and purchase the Divx version and all it has in the zip file is the MP3????    Was the MP3 file accidentally linked to the Divx file?    Now I have two MP3s and no Divx yet.

Help!

Sweet! This is a really awful short. Can't wait to hear them tackle it.

Josh, your version was also a riot.   Fun to see how you and the Rifftrax boys could look at the same scene and each see different jokes in it.   The coughing over the line "Santa entertains the young children" and the riff about taking Santa 400 years to get that right were classics.

You REALLY need to bundle up your shorts (VIDEO shorts you pervs) and sell them on your site.

I'm just embarrassed to admit that I live so close to where it was made, Pittsburgh.  I think that i recognize the bridge in the scene shot on the MON (or perhaps the AL)...

Whoooo-hoooooo, I can now play Divx DVDs on my DVD player and watch them on the TV in the family room!   

Best Buy had an open item special on the one model up Samsung DVD player than the one I already had..... but this one plays Divx.   Since I also had some Reward Zone coupons, it cost me nothing.   

The best part was, since it was a Samsung, I dont have to reprogram my Logitech universal remote as the commands are the same.

Registering the DVD via the Divx DVD player on my PC was easy.   The only "problem" was the activiation video had to be burned on a CD-R or CD-RW and I spent 15 mintues trying to find one in my house.    Who uses CD's anymore?   

Now all the grainy joy of Santa can be viewed on my Plasma TV..... hmmmm, wait.   :-\

A quite happiness washes over me.

Now boys, keep those Divx movies a'comin'.

I'm a little late commenting on these but better late then never. I remember when this short was released and and enjoying it. We did get more far better shorts but this was the one I remember first.
