DC Divx question... how do you get it to work?!

DC Divx question... how do you get it to work?!

Post by Gundam ZZ » Tue May 28, 2002 6:59 pm

OK: I had the Matrix on DVD, but it got all scratched up... so i d/led it in avi (divx) format. It's about 500MBs and I have no clue how to get a movie like this to run on Dreamcast.

So, can someone tell me (a guy who knows absolutely nothing about DCDivx) how to get it to work and so that it doesn't lose any Picture Quality or Sound Quality that it already has?

Thanks!

You can't. In order to get it to play, you have to downsample the audio to 64k/22mhz, and resize the video to 320x240 (or smaller, for a movie like The Matrix)

how you would you make it smaller and do that, and how can you check the stats and a avi.
