Some great usefull reactions finally! The image I created selfboots and you can burn it easily with Disc Juggler, download it at http://www.padus.com .

Ok, I'm getting a little confused right now. Can somebody tell me what versions (or codecs) exist of Divx and wich one does this one support? If i'm right it doesn't support Divx 3.11?

There is Divx 3.x and Divx 4.x
This player currently supports 4.x
which i believe is based off of the
OpenDivx Source.

In the comments section of the first release news post gottahavit posted this info after a few people had said that they had some trouble getting some files playing:

"Sounds like you guys are trying to use Divx;-) 3.x, this is a Divx 4.x player. I may add Divx;-) 3.x support shortly depending on performance. It will not however perform as well as Divx 4.x video nor will it have the same quality at these bitrates.

Hope this helps.

Um, thats your mistake; just burn it and use it in the DC without using a boot disk; it *is* self - boot, I burned it successfully myself, but I take no credit for making it, I believe its the same file that http://www.consolevision.com are hosting as well made by Sparkiller. It will load up a screen with a 3Dish floor, saying DCDivX "scanning directories" or something; then you just swap in a CD containing DiVX movies.
ultradude wrote: Nyarlathotep OK....what u said about the MODE ..useing NERO or EASY CD ..how can i burn a CD Compatible with DC DivX?
I don't think the mode settings matter; you *must* make sure that the filenames of the movies you want to watch are a total of no more than 11 characters (ie Fight_Club_DivX.avi will reset your DC, fclub.avi will play). I havent found any problems with any CDs I have tried so far, so I dont think the CD Mode is all that important - obviously make sure your burning prog writes your CDs as 'data' rather than 'audio'

DivX 4.12 encoded stuff at the right res / bitrate plays ok, and I have had partial success with old 3.11 stuff (audio only though which is probably due to the limited support for 3.11 which is included in Open DivX) and am going to have an experiment to see if any other formats like MPEG4 have any kind of support as well

You didn't encode to DivX4. You encoded to DivX3. Don't encode to DivX3. Make sure you know exactly which codec is the right one.

Actually Marc is adding 3.11 support as we speak and it should be out in the next release. The problem is the decore is optimized for 4.xx playback. So though it will have 3.xx support... you are better off encoding to 4.xx anyway.

I did as you say, but still nothing, what I did is, BURN the CD image that you gave to us, then I put it in because, as you said, its "self boot" after thisthe screen for the CD played appeared... And I don't think that is what so suppose to do... right?
I am confused... what is that light?...

Where can I get simpsons/star trek/other?

Post by ColGraff » Sat Feb 02, 2002 12:08 pm

Could anyone direct me to a decent site with no porn or "pLeAsE vOtE" banners that offers downloads of simpsons/star trek: The next generation, or other quality nerd viewing?

I've just tried Alpha 2 & it's pretty good, I played a file that I didn't encode & while it paused every now & then for the most part it played great. I can't wait for future releases of the player, it's going to be awesome! :D

What about legal video downloads?

Post by ColGraff » Sat Feb 02, 2002 1:04 pm

Could anyone direct me to a site that is *legally* distributing some decent divx videos? Homebrew shorts, stuff like that? Not any TV eps or movies. Thanks!

Problems with BOTH isos

Post by ToolMaynard » Sat Feb 02, 2002 4:10 pm

Damn, i just cant get those isos burned, both diskjuggler and nero. Ive burn a lot of isos before, but with this one i get the error "illegally parameter" or maybe "block" im not sure. And with nero i get the error "disc at once dont supported" which is typical to me, but its still weird as with all the other programs im able to do it. Any ideas? anything would be truly apreciated, or could someone post an iso of alpha 2 for DJ, made by himself. Thanx.
