Thanks for this edi :) Wonder if there's a multi-region hack for it, if it isn't already that out of the box...
#2
Great Price for this, Aria have a really nice one for a few pence less, but delivery charge on top Here
#3
It was there for ages :)
I bought one of these as a giftand wasn't impressed of this player at all. And it went back to store two days after I purchased it as DVD drive stopped recognizing any disks at all.
Maybe I was unlucky :)

Argos one. :)

The Aria one has been there for ages too. Asda also have a 'pace' one for £30, which is really really good. I've had one for ages in the spare room and it's never faulted, has memory card slots, etc

If you need to ask it probably shouldn't influence your buying decisions

There are loads of divx players out there cheap - my cyberhome divx dvd recorder cost 65

Umax Kazuki at SVP is another good alternative :)

DivX is a compressed video file that can allow a movie for example, to fit on a CD-R.

DivX has been mostly replaced by XVid, however, which allows a 40-50 minute episode of your favourite American series to compress to ~350mb. This is why you're seeing DivX-capable players come down in price so much.

I have the Cyberhome DVD recorder from Asda £69, it does not advertise playing divx or AVI files on the box, but it DOES play them, sometimes you have to eject the disc a couple of times for it to register, but apart from that its fine - I can copy 4-5 films onto 1 DVD in less than 15mins instead of transcoding 1 film in 2hours via nero.

I would like a small cheap player for one of the bedrooms!, do any of the above mentioned play AVI files as well as Divx and Xvid?

ROFLMAO. And some people say that AVI is obsolete because MKV is much better. :)

Divx wasn't replaced by Xvid, H.264, AVC, WMV or anything else. This is simply codec and nothing more. Most of Divx players will play Xvid. The problem (but also its strength) with Xvid is that it is an open-source codec and therefore not standardized. Divx is (now) commercial and it is much easier to manufacturers to adapt their hardware and test it.

Of course some player's chipsets are more advanced, some less, but the point is unless you using QPEL, GMC and packed bitstream, the file should play OK even if it is XViD.

Kommunist is absolutely correct... XviD has not replaced anything but is considered a successor to DivX (even though there is not much, or no improvements at all in video quality (latest DivX vs Latest XviD).

DivX/XviD is so popular because you can fit 6 standard length movies (1hr 30min) onto a single DVD (assuming the person encoding it uses a target size of 700mb - typical size for a standard length movie).

The next codec to be built into DVD players will probably be h264 with hopefully it's open source variants such as x264, but the problem with that is that it needs some good hardware specs. However, if my Archos 504 PVR can play h264 then it cant be too hard for manufacturers to do it...

Anyway, i have the "Crystal DivX" from Aria.co.uk - it's £29 and i've had it a couple of years...brilliant player. Even plays the latest DivX6 encoded movies as well as XviD's, proably because the ones i have are not packed bitstreams, qpl etc like kommunist said.

To make it easier for you to check if your file has (QPEL, GMC and packed bitstream) these properties you can run it through MPEG4 Modifierhttp://www.moitah.net/

If your file only has Packed Bitstream then the program will remove it which will make it more compatable for your player

I've got a H&B 3255 divx player bought from savastore for £48.

Decent enough I suppose for the money.

But I'm thinking of buying the xbox form argos for £50.
It'll pay more files than normal players including h.264.
#18
options, no it wont... Not out of the box. Out of the box it wont even play DVD discs unless you buy the remote control. To turn it into a "media center" that will play h264/xvid etc you need to use "XBMC" and your xbox needs to be chipped for that to happen... So it might not be as good a deal for you now.
#19
Oh yeah sorry, forgot to mention that it was my intention to soft mod it when I got it.

Welcome to HotUKDeals intheflesh and Thanks for the pointer :)

PixMania also have a free 2 year guarantee, but aren't too popular for a couple of reasons. Although I've not had any big problems with them myself in the past ;-)
