    I bought this one the other day. It looks cool and works really well, which is nice.



    It was 52 including p&p from savastore.com.

    It does all the things you said - and I'm pretty sure that XviD is the same as DivX.

    Hoi! I didn't mean to post in HardwareWorld. Please to be moving this thread back to the drawing room.

    Don't try to deny it. People's computers break when they post here and mine works just fine at the moment.

    they're separate but similar. and they've got some amount of compatibility between the two.

    most "mpeg-4" dvd players will play both divx n xvid though.

    as far as players available within the u.s., i'd recommend that philips model. it's not perfect, but just about as good as it gets for that type of device -- especially at such a low price (approx $60 USD now). in other countries... i dunno, there might be something else worth looking at, like the kiss players.

    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
