[Libav-user] How to encode Divx video that can be played on Divx certified devices

I'm researching how to encode Divx videos playable on Divx certified
devices. According to https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/Encode/MPEG-4  all I
need to do is specify  -vtag divx.

Using this tag only changes FourCC value, and the converted file actually
is still MPEG-4 video.

So I'd like to know if files generated via above command are sure to be
playable on Divx certified devices? If yes, does it because Divx
implemented all MPEG-4 features and added its own. So that a standard
MPEG-4 will completely be compatible with a Divx certified device?
