1) I assume that since it plays Divx, it also supports Xvid, is this the case?
A number of PS3 owners have said that this is true.

Some have said: no you cannot stream, others have said you can. I haven't read any comments about burning to a cd/dvd. There have also been some complaining that you can't use a external attached HD (but that may not be the case).

What it seems is that there are issues related to streaming (likely to be updated in the next ps3 update), and issues playing early divx/xvid stuff.

XviD 1.1.0 Final

These files codecs come up as unsupported on both memory card, and on PS3 hard drive:
DivX 3 Low-Motion
XviD 1.0.1
DivX 5.2.1 (DrDivX106)

And this blows.. talk about divx and more is unsupported then supported..
Yeah ran into this problem also on my PS3. Some older files I tried just don't work. IIRC they are DivX-3, also some xvid ones don't work I guess they are 1.0.1 but I don't remember what version they were encoded for. I still have problems with mp4's also. Overall it's nice to have but as long as the files are 480p or lower I'd rather just play them in my oppo dvd player. The ps3 is nice if you don't want to take time to put files on a DVD-RW, just put it on a flash drive and play it from there.

Both the PS3 and xbox 360 are better than they were before but still no match for an xbox with XBMC installed.
