    Standalone players usually require the resolution to be a maximum of 720x576.
    Instead of AviDemux, you might try StaxRip.
    Under 'Project', select the XviD template then on the main page, set the size (at or less than 720x576).
    My standalone does not like VBR audio, so you might have to edit the audio to set it CBR.

    I'm running into the same issue here, only my DVD player doesn't recognize XviD AVIs, only DivX AVIs. Why would I want to encode them to XviD if that were the case?
