    Hi everyone and happy holidays. I Own a Philips DVP642 Dvd/Divx player and I am using XviD to encode my videos. Version 1.0.2-29082004 to be exact. I am just wondering what options I can and can't select during encoding that will play on my dvd player and will give me good results. I know I could use the old trial and error method which I have some but I am interested in hearing others experiences and findings as well. Any feedback would be great. I am also wondering what 1. Adaptive Quantization, 2. Quartel Pixel, 3. Global Motion Compensation do to improve a videos quality. Thanks.

    The player will not play any QPEL file. I don't know for sure but that could be the quarter pixelation. The GMC i've heard conflicting reports but it should be able to play it. Sorry I don't know what they all do in terms of quality. :)

    dvp642 will not play xvid/divx with qpel/gmc. If you encode movie using xvid 1.0.2, the picture quality is so crappy.

    this is really doing my head in!
    without getting technical, i am having extreme trouble playing any of my xvid avi files on the philips dvp630/05.
    is there anythink i can do apart from converting the files to divx or mpeg, as the reason i bought the player was primarily so i didn't have to convert anything.
    i have installed the latest firmware from philips, to no avail.
    the following is an examle of what i can not play:

    audio
    audio format mpeg layer 3
    average data 16.170 kb/s
    sample rate 48.00 khz
    channels 2

    video
    frame width 576 pixels
    frame height 240 pixels
    frame rate 25.00 frames/second
    data rate 112.47 kb/s
    video sample 12 bit
    video compression xvid.

    Use MPEG4Modifier to verify your avi:

    1. whether qpel or gmc. if it is, re-encode it without qpel/gmc;
    2. whether square pixel. it could be corrected by modifier.
