Native Divx Directory

What do I mean by "Native Divx"?

Basically a normal file in divx or xvid format that you get from a number of sources that'll play in the portable video players below.

Most require converting the file to another format to play however there are a few that will play divx/xvid files without conversion*

*No player will play 100% of the divx files out there depending on how the file was encoded.
