DivX 4 uses the Four CC code DIVX, 311alpha low uses DIV3, fast DIV4. If it is a Divx4 file, then there is no way that it will be using the DivX3 decoder, unless someone went and changed the four CC code, but then it would just simply not work.

DivX 4 movies look crappier than DivX 3 movies (for the most part). This is just the way it is.

DivX 3 has greater detail but more blocks.. DivX 4 has less detail + blocks.. It is kind of hard to say which looks "crappier".
