Could anyone tell me what exactly the format is called that dvd players read.
The file system on a DVD is UDF. On a DVD you'd buy, the video is MPEG-2, which placed in a VOB file with Dolby AC3 audio (or sometimes it has DTS audio). Most DVD players can read some other stuff, including MPEG-1 VCDs, MPEG-2 SVCDs, MP3 audio, WMA audio, JPEG pictures, DivX/XviD AVI videos (this is more rare), etc. I'm not really sure what you're asking, so please reply with more details.
Thanks for the quick reply,
well basically i just wanted to know if stand alone dvd players could read mpeg4 format but have since learned that they dont.
Not true some do
NeuNeo DV308 MPEG4 DVD Player
Actually there are a lot that will play MPEG4 (DivX)
oh right well on that case I am off to check if my can....bac in a bit
could you possibly compile a list of dvd players that will play mpeg4
unfortunately mine doesnt
just google for divx player - you can pick em up for a little more than a normal cheapo dvd player
There are hundreds.. Do as stated above do a google search they have some for around $60
Thanks guys I am well on my way to becoming mpeg4 complient.
well i was just sitting here and thinking how important is it to have a mpeg4 complient dvd player, is it really worth getting one??????
If you want to fit a lot onto one DVD or CD they are very good. The quality is good and you can fit a bunch more onto one disk so if this is what you are looking for then it would be a good choice.
hmmm.. im not really bothered with divx any more to be honest...
i bought a 32" widescreen tv last xmas (merry xmas to me) and divx just dont cut the grade any more... especially when you have invested in a decent 5.1 system too
i would rather have a high quality dvd player than a low quality dvd/divx combo
Do you not bother with downloading films anymore then??
once you compare a GOOD divx to a DVD you can see there is a HUGE difference... but you need a big TV to really show the difference
its a pity really as i have about 400+ divx/xvid in my attic now just gathering dust!
Thanks for all the help guys, if I ever need help again i'll just shout.
Could you tell me where you used to get all your dvd coverz from cause i use a couple sites but there are rare films that i need to find the cover for.
http://daprogger.mine.nu/ for high res ones (better quality but small selection)
http://www.cdcovers.cc/dvd_a.php for pretty much every movie under the sun... although i have had to make some of my own for some really underground martial arts films etc
I use those but its not there so i am gonna have to make my own, any good programs to use for making dvd covers would be really helpfull.
erm... i use photoshop cs and made a template myself - i have 2 templates... one at 120 dpi for cdcovers.cc and one at 300 dpi for daprogga covers (as they are usually 600dpi+!!)
this is then calibrated to my a3 printer so i get milimetre perfect sizing (or ~1/16" for any yanks still living in the stone age ).
i also add an outline of a black 1px line round the cover - this helps cutting when the covers is mainly white etc...
if you set up grids and stuff you can resize really quickly. i love photoshop , use it every day at work...
