    Ok guys... There is some confusion about the codecs here....
    First of all understand MPEG-4 (Motion Pictures Expert Group) is a guideline for Compressing video and audio for Streaming other purposes.
    Divx and Xvid Follows MPEG-4 Guidelines for compressing Video (But not entirley, So some divx movies are not fully compatible with MP4 video...).
    And AAC = Advanced Audio Compression. Its MPEG-4 Standard for Audio... it has nothing to do with Divx or Xvid.

    Codecs that Im aware of that uses MPEG-4 Standards
    Divx
    Xvid
    Nero
    3vix
    Real Video
    WMV 9,10 (Im not exactly sure on this one)

    So any player that can support MPEG-4 video can easily support Divx and Xvid (as the extra stuff they have are negligable..)
