Question about Televison & Video
I was looking for a firmware update for my philips DVD player, it plays Divx files as well and the model is DVP642/37 with ver 1223 642/37 01E1, built in March 2005.
now a days i am getting some divx file which play with distorted color and bad sound while old divx file runs fine. So i think i need to upgrade the firmware and/or codecs on the player.
I was looking on the Philips web site and they don't have it. also search on google still no go.
please help me and reply me back on firstname.lastname@example.org
thanks and regards

Have you tried upgrading the firmware.
Check first the firmware of your DVD by opening the tray, then press 37 on the remote, and jot down the version of the firmware, then try to find an upgrade to your version or an improvement to it that fixes the original trouble with some DivX files.

SOURCE: my technika dvd player says
goto the free site xvid and download free the software. in it is a bit of software that converts divx to xvid. this may work. trying it as it's free and the software will not do anything to the film converted just the header. as the images is the same. the header changes the postion of sound first to second and image first to second. so that it is in xvid . i.e why do you think xvid is divx backwards. nice one

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.
