Why is it that ipod specs indicate that the ipod is only capable of playing MP4 simple profile files when the player can indeed play Xvids, which are MP4 ASP files (Advanced Simple Profile)?

THe Xvid encoder is tuned to the iPod standard. A normal Xvid video in a mpeg-4 container isn't compatible with iPods.

Huh...I thought I've read here on these boards those who have simply resized xvid MP4's (ASP-based) that work on the ipod video.

Not sure what you mean by the first part of your reply though.... Do you mean that the official xvid encoder has special option to encode for the ipod specifically? If so, then it would no longer be an Xvid.
