Tip & How-To about Philips DivX DVD Player
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.
