i have downloaded some videos which say they are avi files but when i try to play them on my stand alone dvd with divx capability the dvd gives me a message file not supported.i have burned these files by making a data disc with nero ,i found some will play and the others give the above file not supported message,i have divx converter and am using this at the moment to see if this will work with the avi file.i am after dropping it in to the converter to see what happens,any ideas about this please
theres only one problem with nero and thios is it-when i add video files it is telling me it will take 6 hours and 35 mins to make the dvd and thats writing it to a folder on hard drive first,any ideas about why the files are not viewable and others are? thanks again
Patso Avi is really a generic term,some can be divx,xvid,vcd,svcd etc Using nero is a tiresome way of converting these files, If in nero i burn a dvd data disk with 6 divx films on they all will play which i presume you are trying to do. Try the trial versions of winavi,converts lots of different formats,mpeg to avi,wmv to avi etc even avi to dvd as does converxtodvd. Ive used the one skidzy recommended its freeware but i found it flakey with some files.
yes robbi i have used divxconverter and this has worked for me on the file that would not play ,i can now watch it on my stand alone but the quality is a little bit downgraded but is better than nothing,i will try the other prog and update the post ,thanks again
