You don't want to, since they're much slower. libavcodec decodes xvid
just fine, because it's the same thing as divx (just a different
program used to encode it), and both are actually just silly names for

As far as the speed issue, it probably has nothing to do with being
xvid. Try -ni, -nocache, etc. like the message says. And if they don't
help, RTFM and send a proper bugreport so we know more facts;
otherwise it's hard to help!
