I need help.

I just bought a DVD Player which can play DivX files. I tested it on the store with an AVI burnt disc and it worked well. When I got home tried other AVIs that I have burnt before, some of it just stopped playing like it was put on pause after a few seconds. I tried the same disc on my PC and I was able to watch movie smoothly. Anyone with the same experience? I can't say that it's the player for it was able to play some of my discs. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

Maybe you don't have the right Codecs?

Download DivX, Xvid and Windows Media Player Classic.

I used Nero 7 to burn the files. The files are already in AVI so I don't have to convert it

I think the problem may be that not all .avi files are the same. Different .avi files may be compressed using different codecs. I think only .avi files compressed with DIVX will play on your dvd player.

I will have to consider that and try converting all my videos to DivX. I will still be looking to other possibilities like changing my burning program and all. Let's see and I'll share what happened

Thanks for all the help

My dvd player is Pioneer but i'm still trying to figure out what DivX version it has. I used AVICodec to know what Video Codec is used for the videos that I tried to play on my DVD player and I found out some of it using Xvid Mpeg 4 and some are DivX v4. Some Xvids can be played but some just can't. It's really inconsistent and I can find a pattern. Does it have to do with Nero 7 which I used to burn the videos? Or the discs maybe?

Yes,Nero uses a codec which is on board your pc which suits "him "best. The most important factor is how was the avi made using which technique. The pattern you could find is trying to do the following :

1) Do you allways use the same cd/dv's for burning?

Please do the following :
1) Post the type of your DVD player here
2) Follow this link GSpot Downloads this will tell you what and how the avi was burned and which codecs are required to play the cd, you might discover a pattern there.

What I have is the DV-393. GSpot is good, thanks for the link. It's like AVICodec only one file at a time. But still good though. Really explains the file and its codecs. It showed the same result with AVICodec which was Xvid Mpeg4 was used

Chances are if you burned them at different times or what not, theres different versions of the same codec. Someone who encoded might of been using an older version of Divx. Your best bet is to recode the files with the latest version of Divx, or at least the same version that works. You can probably get a copy of Divx Pro or whatever it is and transcode all the files.
