The AVI player is a plug-in for XMMS, giving it the ability to play Windows AVI (including DivX ;-)) and ASF files on your Linux or FreeBSD box. You can simply add movies to your playlist and the plug-in will call aviplay to play the movie files. Many aviplay options are supported, such as fullscreen playback and true hardware acceleration on XFree86 4.x.x.
Avifile is a library that allows you to read and write compressed AVI files in most common video & audio formats (Indeo® Video, DivX, etc.) under x86 Linux. Compression and decompression are performed with Win32 DLLs. It includes a simple AVI player and a Video4Linux capture program. Currently it is under heavy development, and while some features (such as AVI playback) already work, some (audio compression) are not yet successfully implemented.

GNU VCDImager is a program for making Video CD (and Super Video CD, a.k.a. SVCD) images out of MPEG movie files. The images it creates are ready to use with programs which understand BIN/CUE images, such as cdrdao. GNU VCDRip allows for reversing the process, ripping mpeg tracks from (Super) Video CDs.
