Page Xvid support missing from tech specs...

So I was searching around for the Zune HD specs and came across the official spec sheet on Zune.net (http://www.zune.net/en-us/products/z.../techspecs.htm) and I don't see an Xvid section in the video support category.

I find that Xvid is a major feature in the Zune HD because there's a lot of videos that use the Xvid codec.

Maybe MS should update the tech specs, and maybe list Xvid on the Zune HD's box? I think codec support is a pretty big selling point - the ipod line doesn't exactly support Xvid.

You have just demonstrated why Zune's Marketing department needs to be taken to the outhouse for a sound thrashing ..

Its quite obvious that most people recognise the term xvid rather than the more technical term you just stated.

Zune never fails to dissapoint..

of course it's not hard, but frankly, divx and xvid are essentially obsolete. I'm more surprised that they did it at all... AVI is a tough problem- it's still widspread. But it can't support modern container features like chapters, muxed-in subtitles, variable framerate video, or out of order frame display.
I'd have preferred something forward looking, like adding h.264 to the browser.
