not yet.. but hopefully within a year we'll see dvd players that can decode divX movies. Also the x-box should see a divx player in the not-so-distant future. You can always re-encode your divx movies to VCD or SVCD, but you'll have to put up with disc swaps.

Yes, DivX movies can use dolby AC3 audio.. I have never heard of DTS being used though, I can see no reason why a DTS stream could not be used (whether it will play back is another matter)... Also OGG 6 channel audio can be used, although they have not got the channel coupeling working yet.

Man, I wish I was the one to develop the first standalone divx player!! The first company to come up with that for a reasonable price will make too much $$$$
