Is there a way to play AVI's on a DVD player without converting to VCD/SVCD format?

    I was just wondering if there was a way, since I just found out my PS2 can play AVI's using this software called PS2Media Player. (I Hope so!) I searched this site, aswell as google, but nothing specific to what I'm talking about.

    Thanks in advance.

    I do know that SOME DVD players can play divx formats but they're quite rare. I only saw one at my local shop and it was around the $400 (cdn) price line. If you're talking about downloading programs to upgrade your DVD player then I have no clue.

    Or you can go with the most popular DVD/Divx/Xvid player the Philips DVP642

    Oh no thanks for the help, I really appreciate it, but I got it situated now. The PS2 Reality Media Player works great(although, I wouldn't need to be doing this if I had that darn Phillips dvd player :( )!
