Mac question - playing XviD ? Writing DVDs ?

rwrylsin's Mac has a DVD writer. I have a number of XviD-encoded avi files that I ... acquired recently. How can we write them all to a DVD ? And before that, how can we even play them on the Mac ?
On my PC, I downloaded VLC, and these files play fine - I have never downloaded an XviD or DivX codec on this computer.
On the Mac, the files didn't play in Quicktime. We downloaded VLC, and they still didn't play. rwrylsin followed instructions we found on getting XviD working which involved downloading the DivX codec and some other thing which runs XviD through DivX (?? I may be misremembering/misunderstanding), but they still don't play. Help ? Surely this sort of thing should Just Work[tm] ?
