Can I play divx/xvid avi files on a PS3 Slim?

Found 17th Sep 2009
Got a whole heap of divx/xvid avi files on an external hard drive, just wondering if I can play these natively in my new PS3 slim? Or can I play them another way? What other video files playback does the PS3 support?

Tia aha

You cant play mkv direct on the ps3, but you can however stream it from your computer and use a program that converts it into a format the ps3 can play.
