Question about H&B DX-3255 DVD Player

1 Answer

Divx, Xvid playback

Some divx and xvid files don't seem to allow me to skip to a specific time on the file. EG, if I'm watching an xvid file and I want to skip forward to the 55 minute mark, it won't let me. I've tried re-encoding the files using virtualdub, and sometimes this has fixed the problem, but often it doesn't. I have no idea what the problem is! The files play fine on my computer.

    Thanks for that, tried it but unfortunately it didn't work! Some files are jerky though, so thanks for that solution. The file in question I decided to sit down and watch it through, but it stopped playing about halfway through and skipped to the next file on the disc. Have tried feeding it into divfix to try rebuilding the index, but it complains of an I/O error 131. Hmm.

Sounds like your player dosen't like packed bitsreams. try unpacking with some software such as MPEG4Modifier or AVIdemux and see if that helps. Playback of packed bitstreams may also be jerky.

Successful VBR audio conversion for AVI's with Standalone DVD DivX Players


PROBLEMS FOR STANDALONE DVD PLAYBACK OF AVI and DIVX
  • Variable Bitrate Audio (CBR is the standard for standalone DVD AVI's in VBR will cause progressive audio lag errors)
  • Audio Split across Interleaves (Aligned with Interleaves is standard and no known playback errors will occur)
  • Non-AVI v2.0 container (MP4 and MKV containers are too new for most players)
  • Framerate 25fps for PAL(UK) OR 23.97fps for NTSC(USA) if in the UK you need to re-encode to 25 frames per second to ensure correct playback
  • FOURCC not DX50 or DIVX (XVID will work but maybe jumpy)
  • Packed Video Bitstream ** (see N-VOP below this may need to be unpacked) the easiest way to unpack this without re-encoding is to use MPEG4 Modifier from Moitah that will do it in about 30s you can also change the DAR and PAR as shown below
  • Third party software known to interfere with the normal use of DivX for Windows Software.
    Some sections contain options for removing many filters that have the *potential* to interfere with the good operation of DivX for Windows. download the DivX All in One Fix HERE it is a good starting point if you know you have installed codec packs that might interfere with your DivX encoding.

f6de826.jpg

These normally use for AVI's that are enocoded for PC playback only and are NOTsupported on Standalone DVD players so should be removed using VirtualDub or one of the other applications mentioned below.
  • B-VOP's (Bidirectional Video Object Frames, which improves the playback quality)
  • P-VOP's(Predictive Video Object Frames)
  • N-VOP's (can be Zero Time as in a packed bitstream** OR non-Zero Time)
  • QPel (Quarter Pixel Encoding used to improve MPG4-ASP compression over the standard Half-Pixel or normal MPG4)
  • GMC (Global Motion Compensation, will improve scenes where there is lots of motion)


The first job is to change the VBR audio to a CBR there are only a few sucessful ways to do this use VirtualDub or VirtualDubMod with the LAME or Fraunhofer ACM, its easier to do this with Avery Lee's version the Mod version requires lots of de-muxing converting and re-muxing

If you have DivX Pro Convertor licenced with the Professional v6.9.1 of the codec the Video will be fine however the audio with remain at the VBR and will cause you playback audio errors the FOURCC codec will be changed and the aspect ratio for Home Theater will change to the video will be fine, notice that GSpot displays only the DivX503b2851p metadata and no ISFT tag while the VDub twins show the metadata as DivX503b2816p a lower build number than for the Pro Convertor.

Its also a good idea to change the Codec to DivX if you leave it at XVid it will play but it will skip and become annoying well it is a free libavcodec and way and is great to use on just your PC the example above shows what will happen after a successful DivX Convertor change notice the audio MP3 remains at VBR, this will cause audio sync errors even if the audio frames are aligned with Interleaves

64a8cca.gif

The above example shows what will happen if you use VirtualDubMod and VirtualDub both with give you CBR audio so will work on your DivX enabled DVD player however the VDubMod version will keep the Audio frames aligned with Interleaves which is a more successful method especially with AC3 audio VDubMod is good at this see my tip HERE.



SPLIT ACROSS vs ALIGNED WITH INTERLEAVES

Gspot tells us that "Split" means that some audio frames are split across interleaves, i.e. part of the audio frame resides in one chunk and the remainder of it is in another, with a video chunk in between. On v2.5 beta the wording is "audio split across interleaves" or "audio aligned on interleaves", which should help to make it clearer. I'm not making any claims about the relative merit of one scheme vs. the other, but it does seem important enough to report.

  • Nandub splits AC3 audio, BUT not MP3 in CBR nor VBR
  • VirtualDub always seems to Split across interleaves even when the LAME ACM is used.
  • VirtualDubMod splits AC3, but does not split CBR MP3. however it will split VBR MP3 if you answer "YES" to the question about allowing it to "rewrite the header" Otherwise it Aligns.
  • AVIDemux will Split as default however it will Align with if the reservoir is check on the MP3(lame) conversion.
  • AVI ReComp will Align as it uses a bundled version of VirtualDubMod that will allow you to edit the AVS Script if you know how to di this, very advanced stuff.
  • AVIMuxGUI never splits anything always Aligns.


THE VERDICT:

VirtualDub's method is very simple and uses the LAME MP3 ACM to perform the task in 1/4 of the time it takes with the VirtualDubMod version and I have had no playback audio errors with either version have a look at my tips and exactly how to best perform these two methods HERE



FINAL THOUGHT:

You might like to tryout AVI ReComp v1.5.0 (that uses VirtualDubMod v1.5.10.2) that will keep the video in the libavcodec XVID FOURCC (the DivX codec is not yet supported) format BUT will skip when played back on a Standalone Player the audio conversion however is very easy as shown below

578346d.jpg


If you choose to use another alternative AVIDemux v2.5 even when a VBR timemap is created to keep the Audio and Video in Sync

a44d106.jpg


The Video codec is still XVID so will give you a few skip errors. The Audio conversion is best done using the MP3 (lame) which is the same used in VirtualDub if you disable reservoir in the LAME config then it will become Aligned in the same way VirtualDubMod operates.

f3c0f5d.jpg


Here are the results for the alternative conversions but only the audio is changed as they can't change to DivX note that AVIDemux Splits across Interleaves like VirtualDub (unless de-reservoir is used) and AVI ReComp uses VirtualDubMod and so it remains Aligned,

FOOTNOTE:

It is also worth mentioning that it you want to convert your AVI's into DVD format VSO's ConvertXtoDVD will handle any Video codec and Audio codec bitrate even a variable bitrate (VBR) and create DVD Video's with no audio sync problems, by default all DVD Video VOB's audio are at a constant bitrate (CBR) it also has the added option to resize and pad to give you the DAR that you require for you TV.

On the flip side the one and only way to convert a DVD format into an AVI is to use AutoGordianKnot by len0x (based on VirtualDubMod with AVISynth) which will encode a an AVI with the FOURCC of DX50 with either CBR AC3,DTS or MP3 with flawless results everytime with the Audio Aligned on Interleaves for best playback.

8579b46.jpg

It also has the option to encode into XviD with a VBR MP3 audio but this will give audio lag when played on standalone DVD players with often jerky video, so stay away from this unless you plan only to watch the conversion on a PC.


EXTRA NOTE:

It must also be added that even the DivX Convertor Plus v8.0 latest bundle codec v6.9.2 that includes the DivX HD format using the MKV container as opposed to the usual AVI container will not convert a VBR video stream to CBR but create excellent H.264 files with AAC audio streams.

ebb68c9.jpg
These screen dumps from G-spot clearly show that the AVI v2.0 container for the original VBR XVID codec converted using VirtualDubMod v1.5.10.2 has been converted to DivX using the 720x576 Home Theater format with audio frames still aligned on interleaves but has kept the troublesome VBR (variable bitrate video) this will cause your standalone DVD player with DivX progressive audio errors. You must still convert to CBR first using one of the methods above to ensure non-failure.

Come on guys at DivX lets have the Home Theatre format convert VBR to CBR as standard ....

I have a portable Kawasaki DVD player. It does not play AVI videos. Tellme what to do please.


This normally depends on what FOURCC the AVI has encoded inside the file.

Look here at my DivX Rox!! facebook group for the correct DivX FOURCC that will normally work on most standalone players on AVI with FOURCC =DIVX or DX50

Most DVD players that have DivX support require these two FOURCC tags, DIV3,DIV4,DIV5 and DIV6 wont always work but sometimes you can change this without re-encoding using a batch FOURCC changer.

As a general rule of thumb even when you change the FOURCC of the AVI you may experience audio lag on the file it is best to convert all AVI's to DivX using the DivX Convertor that is available with the DivX Professional codec costs $19.99 (£13.99) and is well work the money.

I have had some success with Xvid AVI's with FOURCC XVID but with audio lag and video jerks.

Does not play divx/mpeg4 files on dvd disk!!


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.

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

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.
