    Your problem is probably, that you don`t have the right codex installed.

    Go to www.divx.com

    And download the newest codex + the newest version of their divx player.

    Install the codex, they are downloaded as *.exe files, in ure choosen directory.

    Install the DivX software ie divx.exe

    or a folder named divx, with setup.exe as the installation file.

    Afther installation, u may have to restart ure system, depending on the programs u`ve installed / the current Operation System ure using. Just Do It to be on the safe side.

    Restart computer....

    (I assume u use Windows as your operation system)

    Then...

    Start the divx software...

    (if u follow the basic installation procedures, a shortcut will be added to your program menu

    Start ---> Prgrograms ---> DivX

    Press the load symbol...
    (looks completely like the button u push, when u re want to insert a new cd on ure stereo / video cassete in ur vcr

    Then find ure movies, and select the one you want to watch.

    Your problem should be fixed now....

    First thing, remember that re-encoding always causes quality loss.
    You only need a TMPGEnc, Nero and maybe a codec, depends what codec that movie is encoded, maybe you should install DivX, XviD or both. Open TMPGEnc and open movie file -> choose browse. Then select load and choose example PAL VCD, if that movie is NTSC then choose it. Adjust the settings -> Video tab, change Motion search precision to Highest quality -> Advanced tab, change Source aspect ratio to 1:1 -> Video arrange method is set as Full screen (keep aspect ratio), Then OK. And now ready to go, click start button. Then follow this guide how to burn with Nero: http://www.afterdawn.com/articles/archive/nero_videocd_guide.cfm

    If you have standard VCD or SVCD, then burning it´s not a problem. .avi movies you must burn like data..

    You said burn AVI`'s like data, what do you mean? If I put an AVI file on a data CD, for example using the standard windows one that came with my burner, would my DVD mp3 VCD player detect and play it???
