    It means a DVD player will play back a film which has been compressed as an AVI using DIVX codecs (I think).
    Basically it means you could copy a DIVX film you have downloaded onto a CD and put it in your DVD player and it would play, however the quality would not be as good as commercially produced DVDs.

    I think thats what it is.

    You can squeeze a entire movie on one cd. With divx you can get dvd quality, surround sound, subtitles etc etc... it just depends how the original divx encoding is done.
