Tip & How-To about Philips DivX DVD Player

How to convert XVID VBR MP3 and DIVX CBR MP3 using ConvertXtoDVD

Most Philips DVD players with DivX will play Stage 6 or VOD MP4 Video files if the FOURCC is set to DX50 or DIVX and the MP3 or AC3 audio is at a constant bitrate CBR of at least 192kbps, this is also the DVD Video audio standard in AC3, DTS or LPCM.

However with either DivX OR XviD video with VBR MP3 audio you will experience audio lag on playback the trick is to get the audio track in to a constant bitrate CBR and if possible with the audio frames Aligned on the interleaves as opposed to Split across interleaves.

If you plan on keeping the video in MP4 AVI v2.0 format then you MUST convert the audio to a CBR in either MP3 or AC3 format using one of the methods shown HERE.



If you plan on converting the MP4 video into DVD format you can first try to use the excellent ConvertXtoDVD this will attempt to convert the audio track into 192kbps CBR dolby digital AC3 audio whatever the source AVI audio.

If this fails to give you DVD Video without audio sync problems then you must convert the MP4 to a CBR audio and a FOURCC of DX50 to ensure Home Theatre compatibility.

I have a portable Kawasaki DVD player. It does not play AVI videos. Tellme what to do please.


This normally depends on what FOURCC the AVI has encoded inside the file.

Look here at my DivX Rox!! facebook group for the correct DivX FOURCC that will normally work on most standalone players on AVI with FOURCC =DIVX or DX50

Most DVD players that have DivX support require these two FOURCC tags, DIV3,DIV4,DIV5 and DIV6 wont always work but sometimes you can change this without re-encoding using a batch FOURCC changer.

As a general rule of thumb even when you change the FOURCC of the AVI you may experience audio lag on the file it is best to convert all AVI's to DivX using the DivX Convertor that is available with the DivX Professional codec costs $19.99 (£13.99) and is well work the money.

I have had some success with Xvid AVI's with FOURCC XVID but with audio lag and video jerks.

does not play divx/mpeg4 files on dvd disk!!


The player plays strictly DIVX files, but not variants like XVID (which today is more common since divx became not free).
Divx is actually the same than XVID. After spending days converting my files from xvid to divx, realized that changing only the FOURCC code of the files works.
Look for a program named videoinspector. It allows to edit the fourcc for a video file. for all xvid and variants change the fourcc of the files to DIVX. The change takes a second instead hours of conversion, and movies in xvid that used not to play on this device, now will be played without problems.
