Such good news. I hope there are no small incompatibilities with normal XviD files from AutoGK. We also need some kind of subtitle support.

the PS3 should get the "Divx Certified" so it's ok for xvid (and ac3..)

for subs i hope that .divx format would be supported.. so i can mux avi+srt+idx/subs+ac3+...

Yes, it should get that but we gotta wait to see what eventually comes.

I personally want XviD in .mp4 support with the TTXT subs working.

Sorry, I know this is a PS3 thread, but the article mentioned the 360 as well. Which is what I'm considering as a media player now that it will support xvid/divx.

Do any of you know how media browsing is handled in the xbox 360? Can you browse samba directories, or is it some kind of proprietary media center thing?

Thanks.

Dunno about the 360 but the PS3 lets you browse hard disks and UPNP/DLNA network servers. Some Sony engineers said they wanted to add support for SAMBA shares down the road. I hope we see that coming too.

The 360 browses by media shares set in WMP11 or similar, not samba unfortunately.

The PS3 will get DivX/XviD support at the end of the month when the next firmware update is out (this will also add Blu-Ray profile 1.1 support). It's actually already present in the firmware (hence you can see thumbnails for .avi files), it's just locked out to the end user until the end of the month when the licensing will be sorted.

Looks like DivX and VC-1 are here.

Such problems would not have been an issue if DivX had elected to store MPEG-4.2 video into the .MP4 container, instead of the (crappy) .AVI/.divx container...

Did I say that out-loud?

Well..I've updated and it works for the most part. I have run into at least one file that refuses to play. Whenever I try I get an 'This content cannot be played (80028895)' error. Whatever that means.

Annoying given the 360 can play it.

MP4 = expanded MOV format.
OpenDML = expanded AVI format.
One is no better than the other.

I ran the DivX test CD and a lot of the DivX and XviD files would not play specifically the HD clips, anything with GMC or a packed bit stream and anything with subtitles refuses to play completely (Xbox plays all of those).

For some odd reason it does not like certain files even though they are identical to others that do play it just refuses to play them.

Some files do not play for me, though it does play the files that the 360 struggled and stuttered with (they weren't particularly high bitrate or res either). It seems to know if it's playing DivX files rather than XviD (by FOURCC maybe?), because it displays the DivX logo in the corner at the start on DivX files.

at least MP4 has less overhead and the structure is way better than the avi's...
