    I have downloaded an item that indicates that it is a DivX item and in mulitple languages. It shows this on the opening screen. I can play it on my computer with no problem.
    I burned it to a disc and my Sony DVD player won't play it. It usually always plays DivX.
    I put it through my regular *.avi converter (ImToo Avi converter) and the resulting file comes out 200 megs smaller than it started and in FRENCH.
    I don't understand Harpo in French......any suggestions.

    PS:Media Info says it is really a XviD and the following

    Format : AVI
    Format/Info : Audio Video Interleave
    Format/Family : RIFF
    File size : 697 MiB
    PlayTime : 1h 18mn
    Bit rate : 1230 Kbps
    Writing application : Nandub v1.0rc2
    Writing library : Nandub build 1852/release

    Thanks for your help

    When I set this avic program to the original downloaded file it says:

    FourCC description Code: xvid
    FourCC Used Codec : XVID

    with apparent options to change it to either

    MP41
    MP42
    Mp43
    DIV3

    How do I change it to a DivX ?

    Thanks again

    Type divx in both boxes and apply.
    The player should really accept either, you notice that xvid is divx backwards ;)
    If you have a hex viewer you see the entry near the beginning of the file.I think the dvd player looks for this information and all the changer does is convince it that it should play it.
    I don't know about the language part.
    Did Harpo speak?

    When I typed DivX in both boxes, it plays with both English and French coming out together.
    Sorry, I don't know what a hex viewer is.

    Is this a hopeless case??

    Would the English be coming out of one speaker and the French out of the other?
