You of course need a modded XBox and the xbox media player software for which, according to ausbob you should be able to find a download link in the XBox forum.

The dreamcast is the only one that can do it without a mod chip.. but it can't handle very high resolutions or high bitrates and it's very picky about the audio.. this means most movies need to be re-encoded to conform to the standards. With that said, I've made some decent looking conversions. The x-box player is the best, but as stated above, you need to mod your x-box , which I would probably do straight away even if there wasn't a divx player for the xbox. I don't believe the PS2 can do divx yet.. but being as it's not really much more powerful than the dreamcast, I would probably just forget about it.
