    Finally! But it would be nice to see all the HD Xvids in one place.

    A advanced search for 720p in the Xvid SD collection returns 97 results...not that I haven't already looked through all these, but new users could benefit from this.

    ...just a thought

    Well sure but they have to be manually changed. That would take a lot of time.
    I did a couple last weekend though.

    As new stuff is posted it will go into the right category.

    XviD is obsolete. Invest $50 on a streamer and enjoy the superior quality of x264 rips. HD XviD? Pure anachronism.

    720p releases would have to be 8 GB or more to avoid looking like crap, thus defeating the point of doing an HD release. If you're OK with XVID, stick to the low bitrate crap, the "HD" is a pretty pointless gesture.

    High-definition divx/xvid definitely has its place.

    Because H.264 is a lot more CPU-intensive than xvid, people with old/slow computers can often max out the processor when playing a H.264/x264 video - resulting in an unwatchable movie - while a xvid encode of the same video quality will play just fine.

    Totally agree that x264 is way better...but when your ISP limits you to 60GB/month and videos are just on top of your regular downloading it maxes out quickly.
    I'm more than fine with the quality and its a step up from SD xvids

    Yes exactly, I've downloaded a few xvid 720p for this reason.
    It's a step up from SD but not quite as good as x264 720p.
