    xvid and divx5 are very similar.

    thus your player *might* accept xvid if you change the header information of this xvid avi in order to pretend it is not xvid but divx5.

    http://www.divx-digest.com/software/avifourcc.html

    this tool will let you change the header information.

    change the xvid header to DX50 or DIV5 and try if your player will accept the input.
