Unhappy Divx/Xvid playback jerky

sponsored links
I'm downloading divx and xvid files and burning them on to CDR and/or DVDR, with no re-encoding or anything like that.
They play fine on my standalone divx player except for one thing - the video always seems a little bit jerky, ie when the camera pans across a scene it seems to move in short steps rather than smoothly. This is spoiling my enjoyment of the movies somewhat!
Any ideas? Is this normal? Am I using a crap player?(a standalone Sumvision N820)- I've tried burning at a slower speed, but with no difference.
Thanks for any advice you can give me!

I emphasis that I know nothing about Divx capable DVD players so this may not help.

Most avi files you download have a frame rate of 23.976 being NTSC. To record these as DVD's there's a reformat to 29.97 frames for NTSC playback or 25 frames for PAL. Unless this conversion is done properly then a jerky playback can occur.

Is it something like this and the DVD player is expecting a different frame rate than is being provided by the file?
