If it is possible for you, you might consider providing the needed
components in your distribution of your software. I know that the
needed components to OS X and DivX are available online. Not sure
about the other platforms though. A quick google search will bring up
your options for them as well.
Is there a reason you need DivX support? Would it be possible to
encode your videos in mpeg or QT iteslf?
