My Xvid/Avi player won't play MP4/X264

The title is just a disguise, I'm waiting for lots of these threads to appear. Because of the rules here I'll not post why, but anyone that doesn't know have a read of this and it will explain:

I think it's a great move, at the moment the MPEG-4/x264 codec is the most advanced video codec available and the MP4container format is the best file format to use it with. Of course this is going to cause mayhem to those who bought cheap Xvid/Avi players.

My brother once asked me if He brought over a few DVD's would I take them off the discs. Of course I said "No way, I can download them faster". People shouldn't need to convert a format to another, it's time consuming. This move may kill off some of the old cheap "play very few formats" Chinese media players available. Buy cheap, buy twice. It's best to make a proper investment in something that plays all formats.
