Hey guys, i download HR (High reslolution) hdtv rips of show episodes from bt and i was wondering why my friend and another person that mentioned the same problem online cant watch them on their xvid enabled dvd players (there is sound but no video). is it maybe because the files are too high of a resolution for the player to handle or is it because maybe they use a newer version of the codec then the player supports, im thinking its the first one but could be something else

bingo. most players don't support anything higher than dvd resolution, and even then, NONE that i know of actually support full MPEG4 ASP spec (eg won't play qpel, gmc, etc). you need to re-encode them at a lower res, and be sure the audio format is supported

maybe they use a newer version of the codec then the player supports

the thing about mpeg4 codecs is they must be mpeg4 compliant, if they break the spec then they can no longer be called mpeg4. all versions (except maybe really really early builds) are compatible.

One of my DVD players is DivX certified and plays all DivX videos and _most_ Xvid videos. The Xvid videos won't play, however, when the audio is AC3.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
