The PlayStation 3 can now play DivX video files. I'm not talking the addition of a codec like (some consoles have done), I'm talking fully DivX Certified. Once again Sony, nice work on this one. You may not do everything first, but you are the first to do it right.
My archive of videos from way back can now be played on my PS3. I also have a bunch of XVid files that I was also hoping to play on my PS3. At first I didn't think they would work, but it turns out all I needed to do was run DivX Fix over them and "strip" the index, now they play fine.
