Sadly we are all over the globe on specs and names. While divx is a form of mpeg 4 it is not playable by all mpeg 4 players so there's your proof one thing is not the other.
sorry for the dumb Q. i've encoded a lot of movies in AVI:DIVX for my archos. i want to get the smaller cowon d2 which plays MPEG4:DIVX,,,which is different from the cowon a2 spec sheet which lists AVI:DIVX as supported. i realize the "avi" is just packaging, nonetheless i want to make sure,,,,is ani"divx the same as mpeg4:divx and will i be able to play my avi's on the d2?
