    I'm thinking of buying a DivX DVD player but i want to make sure that my current DivX movies are compatible with it.

    How do i find out which format my DivX movies are in?, eg 3.11, 4.0, 5.0.

    cheers :)

    Both AVICodec and GSpot can be used to determine the codecs required for a movie to play. AVICodec, despite its name has better MPEG capabilities and thus is reccomended for MPEG files (such as those for (S)VCDs). GSpot on the otherhand is far more efficient for scanning AVI files. Both programs offer unique features also, AVICodec allows you to queue up and entire folder to for checking in addition to providing direct links to sites where codecs can be downloaded; GSpot allows for 'rendering' of files (to check to see if the system can actually play the file with the available codecs and to check for fakes. AVICodec can be downloaded from http://www.afterdawn.com/software/video_software/codecs_and_filters/avicodec.cfm and GSpot can be downloaded from http://www.afterdawn.com/software/video_software/video_tools/gspot.cfm

    Ive just downloaded AVIcodec and it worked a treat, thanks :)

    Ive got a few questions for you if you don't mind me asking?

    Ive been looking at the H&B DX3220 DivX/DVD Player, here are the players specs for playing DivX movies.......

    MPEG-4,DIVX FORMATS 3.11-4.0-5.0-XVID-DIVX.

    My DivX movies are in these formats.... DivX v3 MPEG-4 (low Motion), XVID MPEG-4, DivXNetworks DivX v5, OpenDivX v4 and MS MPEG4 V3.

    Will this DVD/DivX player play all of these files withoput any problems?
