xine: div/xvid issues

Hi there.

I've got this strange problem. Out of a sudden xine can't play any 
DivX/XviD movies. It throws this on me:

video_decoder: no plugin available to handle 'DivX 5'

All I've done lately (that is today) was a libxine update from 1.1.15 to libxine uses ffmpeg for DivX* playback and so does mplayer, 
but mplayer have no problems with divx.

Honestly, I'm a bit stuck with it. Anyone got an idea where to look for 
the source of this problem? 

Best regards,
Cezary Morga
