Yes You need the Codecs for it, You can download the codecs here (XpCodec Pack, All in One)
Or Here from SoftPedia Link.
Download it, Install it and restart your PC, Then try running those AVI's.
If the problem prevails, don't hesitate to reply.

Some dvd players only play .avi files, the cheap ones use a pc dvd drive and will play most files, get a movie encode, ( some are free ) and encode the film into the type your dvd plays, good site to see what dvd's play what files is video help . com

I need to know how to get my player to play my DVD on it. I need HELP!!!!!


First of all there is no DVD drive on the compact Digital Media Player second it only supports file formats like MPEG4, AVI, WMV. DVD is MPEG2. So if you want to play your DVD movies you will have to convert them into one of the above formats using a computer before you load it on to your Media Player. You can download this software for free from the site given below.

VIDEO FILES OF CANON SX10 IS NOT PLAYING IN WMP


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

Unable to play back


Shouldn't matter what the OS (operating system) is. What you need to do is to make sure you convert the movie to proper format which would allow you to view on DVD player after burning. Usually you need a seperate software. Your DVD player should say what formats are compatible. Usually listed on unit or in manual. Avi is a great format but when you burned it to DVD your computer probably created a Data Disk. Which would make it unreadable by DVD player. Check to make sure you are able to convert to format that's readable by your player.Good Luck

The following formats can be played on Windows media player:

avi
mov
mp4
mpg
mpeg

Normally DVD players cannot read compressed formats, if you have a regular DVD/MP3 player, that wont read any of the formats above, or with some luck will read only uncoded Avi, mov or mpeg.

The formats above are all compressed formats, and often they need additional software call codecs, they can be read on computers, but they generally are not working on dvd players.

To be sure that a DVD will read compressed computer movies, you need a special DVD player with Divx , like the one below:
