    I was just wondering if anyone here knows of a decent DivX player for PS2. Preferibly one which would play the movie from a network drive (ie my pc).

    I have a PAL ps2 with HDLoader.

    For that do you have to burn the DivX movie to a CDR then play it that way?

    I'm really after one which will play from a network drive. I found one awhile back but lost the link and can't seem to find it again.

    You cannot play PS2 reality from the hard drive. You have to make a data cd or dvd. Their web site says that it can play from a server, but i do not know how.

    You have a mod's PS2, then Divx/AVi files yes using PS2 Reality CD. Updates come from the software being updated. VCD/SVCD no.

    Play DVD Movies on PS2 with unmod PS2 YES.

    Might be better off getting a cheap standalone player by Apex that supports Vcd/Svcd, mp3s etc.

    THANKS!! No I havent yet bought a PS2, I Had an idea for the next month, to buy a ps2 and a dvd/divx player, and I was wondering if with a ps2 only, I can do everything, Before I buy both!! I found the real player insallation for the ps2 (http://ps2r.dg2.org/150/downloads.html V1.5)and I was checking if some of you did it and how it worked, not to do something wrong! So if I buy a PS2 with MOD, there will be NO Problem for watching the DIVX and DVDs !!! But no VCDs ( that not a big problem for vcd ).
    Just to CONFIRM !
    Thanks a lot again !
