    Hi all,

    I'm sorry if this is a stupid question but can DVD players that are capable of playing Divx can they also play Windows Media Files?

    Many thanks

    If you mean 'can a standalone dvd player, play a Windows Media file', the answer is no.
    Of course you can convert the file to DivX and no problem.

    Actually if it is WMA std, then most will play WMA files and some Sigma based players will play WMV files. On the whole though, no and you wouldn't be looking for a DivX logo, you would be looking for some kind of Windows Media one.
