1) No, they want you to compress your movies using XviD because it's better.
2) If the DivX logo shows up when you play a video, it's there for one of two reasons:<ul><li><b>It has been hardcoded into the video</b>, because someone was using DivX as <i>source footage</i> in something like Windows Movie Maker and didn't have the logo turned off <b>on their machine</b>. If this is the case, then the video can be in any format -- MPEG-1, WMV, AVI -- and it will still have the DivX logo, and there's nothing you as the viewer can do about it.<li><b>You're using the DivX codec to watch the video</b> in whatever media player you use, and you don't have the logo turned off <b>on your machine</b>. In this case, you can solve the problem simply by going to the DivX decoder options and disabling the logo (I believe the option is on the second tab), or by ditching DivX and getting some other codec to handle DivX streams (like XviD or ffdshow).</ul>Let us be very clear on this point: compressing or exporting your video with the DivX codec, in and of itself, will not hardcode the DivX logo into your video -- only using DivX-encoded <i>source footage</i> does that.
