 It's  definitely  worth for me! As I have whole 'Shin Seiki Evangelion'
in this format. But I guess, it isn't popular among  people,  especially
now, when divx is quite popular and offers nice size/quality factor.

 Yup.  All  in  all,  my vivo collection isn't big. NGE, DNA^2... that's
all? But I hate to hold whole windows partition just in order  to  watch
movie... :(

 I could be, if I was tons and tons better with linux programming... :>

 I  asked  my friend to upload a few ones. I cannot do it myself, as I'm
hanging on the modem :/

 I highly doubt it. It is closed format. Even for Windows there is (was?
didn't check it for a while) only 2 players - one which was  written  by
the authors of this format, and second, a freeware interface to the .ocx
which contains decoder... So only hope here is to make  this  .ocx  wor­
king. Any ideas?

 Haven't seen it either.

 Well, current mplayer refuses to play it :>

 I'm  using  framedrop, but as far as divix isn't HQ - resolution above,
say, 600-700 in horizontal direction it plays fine.
