Bitrate compatibility issues

I have been having problems with dvds playing fine on my dvd player, but not on some of my clients. I have been talking to people about the maximum bitrate used on my dvds, where some older dvd players might not be able to keep up with high bit rates. I have been told to try with encoding with a maximum bit rate of 6000, as this should be low enough for many players. Does this sound right? Thanks Steve Jay

How do I play DVD on the BlueRay player?

According to the Vizio website, your VBR231 CAN play DVDs the same way a lot of Blu-Ray players can. The site blurb suggests the VBR231 is backwards compatible - which means your player should be able to play DVDs as well as Blu-Ray. Generally, most Blu-ray players can play DVDs if they are backwards compatible with them.

I do know Blu-Ray discs will NOT work in most standalone DVD decks.

MODEL NUMBER: VBR231

*Model Features:
* Full HD 1080p Video Playback
* Integrated Dual Band Wi-Fi - 802.11n
* 7.1 Digital Audio Output
* Backwards Compatible (see below)

*Compatibility:
* Plays Blu-ray and DVDs, Audio CDs, MP3s and Jpegs
* Multi-Channel 7.1 Audio Output via HDMI
* Playback and Enjoy Media via back USB Input (JPEGs and MP3s)

*Outputs:
* HDMI 1.3
* Component Video (YCrCB)
* Composite Video
* Stereo Audio
* Coaxial Audio
* Optical Digital Audio

I hope that helps somewhat.

Philips HTS3565D dvd player, recent Paramount DVDs (Star Trek and Transformers 2) freeze during the Paramount DVD introduction at the exact same spot: as the stars are flying in toward the camera's view....

I have the same problem, though I don't recall which exact movies. They were all from Blockbuster. Sometimes they start to play and then halt at the end of track 1 and sometimes don't even make it tot he menu. The same movie will play on our portable dvd player. A Philips rep told me about 6 weeks ago it was a problem with a new security feature on some movies and to watch the website for a possible firmware upgrade to fix it. Now you can't even talk to someone at Philips so I don't know what to think. The "live chat" folks just want to tell you to take it to a repair shop - not much help there.

SAME old! JVC files mod, have converted with prism to avi in the past, with success. Now DVD player says (once) cannot read (next time) not compatible. using DVD-R

Are you talking about a stand alone dvd players?

If you are talking about a stand alone dvd player, that is correct they do not player .avi extension file. I know some portable dvd player can play avi extension files.

all avi extension files needs the right audio and video codec to be player. All stand alone dvd players does not and can not detect codec for you.

On the issues of dvd-r brands, Some stand alone dvd players can only play dvd+r type dvds. ck your brand of dvd disc and players, make sure they are complatible with each other.

Mine is Sony DVD player..I insert a disc and it says "CAN NOT PLAY THE DISC" and then the player shuts off. The other DVD works fine.

HI,
Check the manuel some DVD Players do not support DVD RW or -R +R formats.When Ifirst put my burned movie in I got the message that the player cant play that format Just ignore that and advance the Video to where the movie is starting then all my burned movies played fine. My Pioneer BD 51 FD does support DVD RW +R -R formats so be sure that you can play burned DVD RW +R -R on your Sony player. I was in Wal Mart the other day and they had some DVD players on sale but on the box it said that they do not play DVD RW +R or -R Burned DVD's so be careful if you do buy another one I went to best buy and found mine. Check first it will save a lot of hassle later. This software works great but it may not play in your DVD Sony Player there is a list here of compatible DVD Players


OR

your disc is scratched or a pirated one

WILL MY DVD PLAY AREA 1 AND AREAV4 DVD'S?

Hi camonk2004,

It's interesting that your DVD player was purchased in Russia but plays Region 1 DVDs. Region 1 is North America. Does your Player also play Russian DVDs (region 5)? If so, then it has probably been modified to play DVDs from multiple regions.

Check the back side of the DVD player - the rear panel should have a Region number on it. If the region number is 1, then try playing a Region 5 DVD. If it reads the DVD, then the modification that was done in Russia will probably allow it to read any DVD. IF the Region 5 DVD won't play (or if it is ejected automatically), then your player's region control os still intact, and it will only play DVDs from the same region as the one listed on the rear panel of the player (or DVDs marked "ALL").

I hope this helps - please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Kind Regards,
H2H

DVD player not working

Hello riceclan_dad

It could be a compatibility issue w/ the media you are using. To that end, ...

(01) Do you get this error msg. w/ original DVDs?

(02) Or are you trying to play DVDs created at home?

If your answer is YES to (01), then it is unlikely the issue is media incompatibility.

If the answer is YES to (02) (and NO to (01)), try using DVD-R dvds (media) rather than DVD+R (DVD+R is a newer standard that older players do not recognize).

There is another FixYa post (similar issue) w/ one solution HERE. The expert suggests having the lense (on the DVD player) checked and possibly replaced.

Please, let us know if this helps.

Thank you,
BJ
