Can't Make A Divx Dvd That Is Playable. And File Not Showing Up As Divx


justin860

Question

I am using EMC 10 to output in divx. I then burn the files onto a disc that is supposed to play divx discs. It has worked before, but that is when I already had the files in divx.

When I output the files in divx, they still show up as avi's. I don't understand what I a doing wrong.

 

Can someone please help me output in divx and make a playable divx divd?

Hello Justin,

 

DivX is a type of video compression, and AVI is a container file that videos compressed with DivX are put into.

 

When EMC10 outputs a video to a DivX file, it writes an AVI.

When EMC10 outputs a video to a DivX disc, it writes a data disc with an AVI on it.

When EMC10 outputs a video to a DVD, it writes a Video-DVD which will play in a DVD player.

 

Unless you have one of the newer DVD players which is DivX certified and will play data discs containing AVI files, you need to set EMC10 with a Destination format of DVD if you want the disc to play in a set-top DVD player.

So when I convert the files, I should make the destination a dvd and that should work?
