    I recently purchased a Philips DVP 642 and Canon A95 camera to use for underwater photos and AVI movies. I cannot get the DVP to recognize the AVI format. I called technical support from Philips but they could not give me any assistance. Does the unit play AVI files without converting? What is the easiest procedure to allow me to put the AVI files on a CD-R and play them on the DVP642. The files all play perfectly on the computer but I can only view stills on the DVP. The AVI files will not play and post a codec not supported message.

    Thanks

    Download Video toolbox and drop the .avi file in. see what compression there using. Once you find out what compression there using you should be able to convert I would not think it's a uncompressed .avi file sizes would be huge. If it is an uncompressed .avi you could convert that to just about anything to play on DVP. If it is some propitary compression canon is using your screwed.

    Good Luck
