    Odd question here, but sure there's others in the same situation. I've got about 20 MP4 video files which are stored in iTunes, ready for playback through there or on my iPhone. Most of them were ripped from my DVD's using Handbrake.

    Then, I've also got a load of AVI's and DIVX movies that were downloaded from various places, which iTunes doesn't support and thus won't let me add to my library.

    So, my question is, can anyone recommend a decent bit of software that I can use to centrally store/catalog (and maybe even use to play) all of my movies, even if it means removing the MP4's from my iTunes library?

    There are many different media center apps you could use. Plex is my personal favorite, but Boxee is excellent as well.
