It reads DivX. In fact, bearing in mind that nothing literally reads everything, it reads close to everything.

See here for more of 'andys' DivX discussion: http://www.futeko.com/newforum/index.php?topic=3694.msg26559#msg26559

Format support for Zidoo is very similar to HiMedia.
I just received Z10. My Q10 PRO died and I am glad it did because I hated it.

Z10 on the other hand .... LOVE IT. Home theatre is awesome. Kodi should hide somewhere and cry with the failed ergonomics (isnt the point of library showing the details and not playing first and having to click yourself to death if you want to see the details). And so much more.
But lets get to the point. Z10 doesnt play a lot (depending on your library). Install Aptoide -> VLC and ... VLC plays everything on Z10. The thing is VLC detects problem with hardware acceleration, turns it off and plays video not accelerated which is just fine. The only problem is that it is super annoying to use another player.
"Cannot play video" is obviously fixable and if it is fixed we have a winner.

Zidoo does not include the DIVX VOD (Video On Demand) license needed it seems.
See my review:
http://forum.zidoo.tv/index.php?threads/practical-experiences-pictures-hq-music-dvd-bd-and-uhd-bd-playback.48237/

- DIVX VOD (Video On Demand) titles are not played by the player but these play without problems using any of my HiSilicon based players. XVID AVI''s on the other hand do work just fine (for VOD content the player must be DIVX licensed).

In some cases divx can be played by changing the file header to xvid. This doesn't always work though. See here: https://www.fourcc.org/changer/
