Divx Petition for the Xbox 360 sign now

For weeks and months everyone waited patiently on the release of the Xbox 360 with all it features. Unfortunatly when some of us attempted to stream some videos to xbox360 we could not because they were in the DivX format.

Why isnt divx a supported video codec? It is far more superior to all of the other supported codecs and is widely accepted by anyone who knows anything about video files to be the best.

There have heard rumors that the reason it hasnt been supported is due to illegal backing up of dvd's etc. In that case every video and audio format the 360 supports should be removed as all formats have the possibility being used illegallly.

At this point in time are many products out there which will only encode in divx, eg the archos av400 and the rest of the archos av series. There are also plenty of DVD/divx players currently for sale on the market. Why should the xbox 360, potentially the hub of our home entertainment centers lack this vital link the chain?

Please either explain this serious oversight, or release an update so that the divx codec is supported.

We look foward to hearing from you.
