    Unless you have a player that plays MPEG-4, and if you did you'd know, you have to convert it to one of the formats your player does read. For XviD I'd recommend converting to either DVD or SVCD. There is a guide here at Afterdawn for converting to DVD:
    http://www.afterdawn.com/guides/archive/convert_avi_to_dvd.cfm

    If you want to make an SVCD instead it will require some changes, which I'm sure you can get help with on our VCD/SVCD forum.
