xanim has not kept up with current video codecs; mplayer and xine have.
Don't know about gtv. The DiVX codecs are widely used when people
rip+encode DVDs or output from TV tuner cards because A) they compress
better than MPEG-1 at higher quality B) multipass encoding allows the
encoder to choose the final encoded file size pretty accurately. It
should be easy to play DiVX files on 'Doze provided the appropriate
codecs or appropriate video player are installed. I forget exactly what
these are; Google "DiVX player Windows" for more info.
"mencoder -ovc help" tells you all the formats that mencoder can output.
If you really need MPEG-1, f'rexample, you can do:
mencoder *.jpg -o output.mpeg -ovc lavc -lavcopts
...further info in the man page, or try Googling for "mencoder
