iTunes is the one best integrated on the Mac OS X: if you have iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV, it still is a no brainer application. While, the point here is, iTunes is picky for the input file types. You may find it’s impossible to add Divx/XviD to iTunes directly. So, is there any way to play Divx/Xvid in iTunes with ease? A little searching turns up the solution…
One possible solution is that you can use Perian to get these files to play by the default QuickTime on Mac. If you stick with iTunes, you need to convert Divx/Xvid to iTunes friendly format like MP4, MOV. You can get Brorsoft Video Converter for Mac to achieve your goal.
Overall, the program can be used as a utility to convert Divx, Xvid to iTunes compatible file format like mp4, mov, m4v with high quality and fast encoding speed. Besides Divx, Xvid files, it can also help you encode/re-encode almost all 4K, 1080p, 720p HD videos including AVI, MKV, VOB, MPG, MOV, TiVo, MTS etc. to iTunes as well as iPhone, iPad, Galaxy Tab, Kindle Fire HD and more media player or devices.

How to Convert XviD/DivX to iTunes supported video formats
Note: For Mac (Yosemite, Mavericks included) users, just follow the detailed guide to complete your conversion. The way to transfer Xvid, Divx to iTunes (iTunes 12) on Windows is the same. Just make sure you’ve downloaded the right version.
Step 1. Add XviD or DivX files
Launch the XviD/DivX to iTunes converter, then head to the folder where your source videos are stored. Add the files to the program. Batch conversion is supported.
Step 2. Select iTunes supported format
Since iTunes supports MP4, M4V and MOV formats, you can click Format bar and choose any of the three from Common Video as the output file format. If you want to import Xvid, Dvix to iTunes for playing on iPhone, iPad, iPod, Apple TV, etc., you can also directly select a format from decent device preset like iPad.
Tips: If you think the video size this not suitable for your iOS devices, you can first choose any one of the provided type, then change the “Settings”. Please remember the file size is based more on bitrate than resolution which means bitrate higher results in bigger file size, and lower visible quality loss.
Step 3. Start converting Xvid/DivX to iTunes
Click the “Convert” button at the bottom right corner; it will start to convert XviD/DivX movies to iTunes immediately.
After the conversion, get the output files by clicking the Open button. Now add the converted files to iTunes library. iTunes will now have no trouble to transfer the XviD, DixV files to iPhone, iPad, iPod, or streaming to apple TV. Enjoy yourself!
