First I recommend downloading the Tsuanmi 3.9.9 Codec/filter pack from UncasMS's web site or just do a google search

To change Xvid to DivX and vice versa with VirtualDub do this

Open up VirtualDub
Open up the file from the "file" drop down list
Click on Audio at the top - Then click Direct Stream Copy
Click on Video at the top and choose "Full Processing Mode"
Click on Video again and click Compression
Choose the Codec you want
The from the "file" drop down list click Save as AVI

Hope this works for ya

Yes you get to choose any video codec that you have installed on your computer...

As for the time it takes, it varies on how long you video is. I would suggest if it is like a movie about 700MB I would start it up at about 10 then let her run all night and that will be PLENTY time

Just convert all of your movies first before uninstalling XVid. If not you will get blank movie result (Virtual Dub can't decode your source movie).
