I'd use DivX though, as XviD isn't as popular
Since it's GNU you can just distribute it with your game/demo/movie. Using an installer package like Install Maker or Install Shield you can install the codec automatically as well.

So it's not really a problem if most people don't have Xvid.

and Windows Media Player doesn't like it (Mine doesn't anyway).
Hmmm, no problems here. I agree that DivX is older so I think it probably has less bugs (if any).
