Just wanted to let everyone know that the Xbox 360 Fall Dashboard update definitely includes support for what are "often referred to as Xvid or DivX video files." I know it’s not earth-shattering news and  I know that most of you probably already know about this, but I just wanted to get it out in the open. I’m not trying to ruffle any feathers or rile anybody up. I don’t want any trouble.

Just another quick note and then I’ll let you get on with your day. It’s been noted that extra DivX-specific features like menus and subtitles won’t work and that only DivX 5.0 and up files can be played. Again, I don’t want any trouble. Peter also wants me to tell you that "the update for DivX playback is a separate download from the main update. It prompts you the first time you play a video." I’ll now say thank you and bid you a fond adieu.
