Unless stated otherwise, either on the player itself, or in the instruction manual, no. You would need to convert the .avi file to DVD compliant format in order to play it. ConvertXtoDVD can do this and can give you the option of burning the converted result directly to DVD-R. It is a shareware program.
Many DVD players can handle .divx files on a CD-R, but takes a while to read the contents before playing them, then there are .mp3 and .jpeg which is a fairly common file format, playable almost anywhere. It is unlikely or extremely rare that any standalone DVD player or similar external device can play .avi raw data files successfully.
There are heaps of video conversion software programs available.
So do you use Windows Media Plyaerto replay some videos? I afraid WMP can not support all of video format, and there is nothing wrong with your computer. You can download the code or download the Leawo Free AVI Converter to convert your video to avi and then replay in WMP.
The reason why the DVD disk you created may not contain the file format the DVD player recognizes. On a normal DVD disk there are two folders - AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS folders. The video files are located in the VIDEO_TS folder. This video folder contains the VTS_xxx.vob video files (the video files has a .vob extension).
The video file you created may have a avi or wmv or mov or mpg extension, whilst these video files can be played on a computer but they won't play on a DVD player.
Check the movie software you are using and make sure it creates the correct file format for a DVD player.
Hi teddy, maybe the file you are playing is not a real avi file. Try to Open "My Computer">Tools>Folder Options, then look for "Hide extensions for known file types" and uncheck it. Then look back at your file again if it's still has an avi extension. Another reason is that, maybe the file is not a real movie or video files.
There is No software download for the DVD plaer itself. Where you are going wrong is the Format ie avi that DVD player does not support it. You can Google free software to download which will allow you to convert you AVI file to something that the Dvd player will play:
DVD Video • VCD • SVCD • DVD-R • DVD-RW • DVD+R • DVD+RW • CD (Audio) • CD-R • CD-RW • Picture CD • Divx
so If you type in Google free Avi converter Then this will list several. You really want one that will convert to DIVX or VOB those will definately play on your DVD player.
I hope this has help you out. I tryed not to go into too much detail.
Convert video to .avi or DVD (Audio TS- Video VS) format.
Many common dvd players can play .avi files
(.avi files are very compact).
All dvd players play TS/VS format.
AVS4U is a reasonably priced (approx $50)downloadable suite of programs that can perform all the conversion tasks you need for audio & video.
H264 is a "mov." file. Windows media player11 and Power DVD 9 do not support this type of file. If you don't like QuickTime, there are many free media players that will support it (VLC is a good one). You could convert the mov. file to an avi. file with a video converter program. Then your avi. format movie will play in WMP
Your problem is most likely a format or codec problem.(you dont have the right one installed) Download the free VLC media player here http://www.videolan.org/vlc/
Its a free program that plays almost everything, without the need for downloading new codecs all the time. If by chance this does not solve the problem, take note of the file extension of the file you are trying to play. Google "extension + .avi" to find out what plays an avi file google "extension +.mov" to find out that that is a QUICKTIME file.(which very well maybe as its very popular for movie cam formats)
If you dislike using VLC for some reason then you can buy and install the proper program to play the proper file kind *s* but VLC will play 99 % of files.
