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 is it maybe because the files are too high of a resolution for the player to handle or is it because maybe they use a newer version of the codec then the player supports, im thinking its the first one but could be something else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maybe they use a newer version of the codec then the player supports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.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
