Question about Samsung DVD-VR330 VCR and DVD Recorder

Open Question

The dvd player doesn't recognise avi files any more. It seems to be alright apart from this: I get to the part where it lists the avi files on the disk, but then it says it can't play the file format. So it recognises that they're DivX, and lists them, but won't/can't play them. Not sure if this is because of newer variants on avi's, or a machine problem? The dvd player works fine otherwise. Thank you for any suggestions!

SOURCE: I want to convert an avi extension video file to wmv

"will converting an avi extension file to wmv make it work on a dvd player??"

No, a DVD player uses .VOB files


"I have a Philips GoGear SA 3020 and it only supports wmv files. Can I somehow convert an avi extension to wmv?"

Your device is only 2GB so it won't hold a lot of video content but wmv files are generally smaller then .avi.

If your player cannot play that format it can't. Its their limit. Better check what format your dvd can read.

Rip your DVD's using XviD format and not DivX and they should play just fine.

A good free software to try is "Winx Free DVD to XviD" but you'll have to have unprotected DVD's or rip them to the hard drive first using DVDFab to remove the protection or just have Slysoft AnyDVD running.
I set the video's audio to mp3 format (128Kbps 48000sample rate), and the video to 25fps(because in Australia we have PAL format), output profile to keep original size and aspect ratio, and video quality to about 1500kbps.
You won't get much benefit from a higher bit rate then that on a GE4203 screen and you could probably even go lower if you have speed or sync issues with the data rate. Even 1200 looks good.

My fukuda dvd player plays video files (AVI) from flashdisk (USB) but... the sound is not smooth...


Most DVD players only accept MPEG-2 in standard VOBs. Some of the older standalone DVD players do not play AVI at all. Now some of the newer DVD players support AVI encoded with DivX. Look into the player manual, it'll tell you what formats are supported. If the DVD player does not support AVI, it will fail to play AVI files even if we have successfully burn AVI to DVD disc.

In order to successfully play all kinds of AVI files on any DVD player model, an all-in-one solution is to convert AVI to DVD player more compatible format.

I just burn a writeable cd from my desktop pc using windowa movie maker. I can play it back on my pc no problem but when I insert it into my dvd player it reads no supported files found.windows used high...


Computers use video files such as AVI, WMV, MPG etc.

DVD players use VOB video files, and will not recognise the computer video files.

Unfortunately, Windows Moive Maker cannot create VOB files - you will need another piece of software to convert the WMV file Windows Movie Maker creates to a VOB.

A lot of disc burning programs (e.g. Nero) include video converters. See if you've already got one on you computer.

If not, try Googling 'WMV to VOB'. There's quite a few free ones out there.

Hope this helps,

Matt

Unable to read mkv and avi video files from usb drive on philips dvp5990 dvd player


what error does it give? mine reads avis fine, as long as theyre within resolution limits. same for windows media format. couldnt get the mkv files to work though. the usb drive has to be formatted fat32, ntfs does not seem to work. burning these files to dvd as a data disc is another option. lets you fit 10+ hours of video on the disc vs your standard 2 or 4 hour max limits.

DivX certified player cannot read DivX files on DVD+R


Is there a Divx logo on the player? Does this particular DVD player capable of reading DVD+R disks?

If you used the Divx converter program, there is a way to create a DVD in Divx format with menus. Did you use that particular program? If you didn't, you may have the DVD in a data format and the player can't read it that way.

LG RH188H - what movie file types does it play?


Hi,
AVI are a certain type of movie file.
Your problem is most likely that you do not, have the correct software ( program ) installed on your computer to view these files, yet i believe do play on a normal DVD Player.
you could try Windows Media player, this may work for you. also power DVD or Similar. although there are newer programs out there. as for the conversion, this is a long winded process in itself. To convert AVI To MPEG ( standard DVD Format ) you need unpacking tools and software, And a relatively high spec PC, Lots Of Memory.
Hope this guides you.

Watching wmv files on DVd


MPEG-2 video is the file format you’ll need to convert to, but you cannot simply burn the MPEG-2 to a DVD and automatically play it in a DVD player.
The easily way is to buy software that will make the transition smooth; I recommend VSO Convert to DVD.

Sansui VRDVD4000 format


I do not believe this player plays AVI videos, not to mention whatever codec you are trying to use.

Download VSO ConvertXtoDVD and convert your AVI files to DVD and then burn them to DVD-R (NOT DVD+R), the 4.7GB discs (single-layer).

This process takes a very long time, depending on the size of the movies you are converting, some 1-2 hours, some 8-24 hours.

I suggest buying a Philips DVD Player that plays DivX and XviD AVI files, they seem to be the best. You can just burn the AVI to any disc and it will play. [Most popular seems to be Philips DVP 642]

Cheers.
