DVD Playback another way

There’s an idea that e.g. kiss or revoy are following:
why not pack divx on dvd (2 or 3 films in very good quality) and play these back…?

is there anybody in this project, like building a linux based player (e.g. with via epia m6000, because it’s fanless…)
i have the idea of a very quiet pc like thingy in a hifi component style casing.
i found a lot of real good stuff for implementing it.

anybody interested sharing thoughts and infos
?
i hope this is not the wrong forum for such a thing.
