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.

Why is it that I canot get sound on all the vidios that I play back on my TV from my Screen Play I can only get sound on a few ?


Hi Mary,
Please check the format of the video that you are trying to play.
this Iomega ScreenPlay Plus HD Media Player is certified to play popular DivX video, and supports many of today's popular CODECs and file types, including H.264, WMV and MKV, as well as plenty of others. (For a comprehensive list of supported video, audio and photo files. Most probably the video that you are trying to play is .3GP or .FLV.

For this you need to convert the video files to supporting format like DivX®, DivX Plus™ HD (MKV), XviD, AVI(Xvid, AVC, MPEG1/2/4), ISO, VOB, MP4, MOV, MKV,H.264, WMV, RMVB and MPEG.

Thanks,
Satheesh

Cant open demuxer


If the "Cannot open demuxer" error appears it means the Avi encoders on your system are either missing or corrupt. Please use the following links below to download and install Divx and Xvid encoders. A good way of telling if your Avi encoders are installed properly is if the AVi file being used can play in Windows Media Player correctly.

You would simply need to download the appropriate codec you are attempting to convert to, and also the Windows Media Encoder.

DIVX
www.divx.com

XVID
www.xvid.com

Windows Media Encoder

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.

When i watch DVDrib movies, the movie freeze up middle of the movie. i have bs player and nero and divxy. how can i fix it? thanks. matt,


Download and install the latest xvid codec from http://www.koepi.org with the latest Divx codec from http://www.divx.com. Together with the AC3 Filter from http://ac3filter.sourceforge.net/ you should be able to properly playback almost any AVI/DivX file around.

Post your results back here. Good luck!

My technika dvd player says it can play divx. I have burnt divx to dvd using a divx author and i have just put the files on to a dvd but neither play, any ideas how i can get the player to play this...


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.
