They are still MPEG2, same as regular SVCD's.

DivX is MPEG4 by the way, at least one implimentation that is.

you are confused between avi and mpeg , div x is a variation of avi , (please correct me if i am wrong ;-)) so windows media player will play xsvcd or kvcd or vcd etc.

You are wrong.

DivX is a video codec, sometimes (ok 99% of the time) used in AVI.

AVI is a container format, it can contain audio and video as well as subtitle streams using various different compressors.

As long as you have an MPEG2 codec installed, then wmp will play XSVCD's, KVCD and VCD's are MPEG1, windows comes with an MPEG1 decoder.

Should also point out that the MPEG1 decoder has build in RIFF parsing and is therefor capable of playing (X)VCD's, simply by opening the DAT.

Not all MPEG2 codecs on the other hand have RIFF/CDXA support.

Ok, I see the difference, I was mistakenly catagorizing div x and avi as the same format and not div x as a codec. Thanks for putting me right.
