Your best bet would be to buy an XBox1 that has been modded and boots up Xbox Media Centre (XBMC)

Will play all the standard definition divx/xvid/mpeg2/wmv etc formats you can throw at it plus be able to output vga/composite with the right box/leads.

You can stream it straight off your pc so no need for burning it to disc first. You can also easily update the xvid/divx codecs unlike most divx dvd players which seem to have zero firmware support once you've bought the thing (personal experience :( )

By your post it's not totally clear what your setup is (i.e wanting to watch stuff that you've downloaded onto your pc on your tv in the front room/bedroom etc?)

You mean play ur DivX content on you TV? If you do mean PC, just download VLC player, it's free and plays anything.

If TV then there's various options:

-TV-Out is by far the cheapest, easiest, and probably the best way. If you've got a tvout on the back of your graphics card then you just need an S-video cable and a Scart adapter into you're TV....hey presto you can setup you're TV as a second screen.

-You can also convert your DivX content to VCD (video-CD) files, which will play on most decent spec DVD players (but you lose some quality, and conversion is an annoying waste of time).

-You can pick up a DivX dvd player for under £30 now quite easily (saw one for £20 in Tesco even), which will play your DivX files burnt to either CD or DVD....it's worth reading up somewhere like the AVforums, as some DivX player have problems with becomign awfully choppy and slow.

-If you have an LCD/Plasma tv with either composit/DVI/HDMI inputs, you can cimply use it as your monitor, as all sorts of comversion cables are avalible for this sort of purpose.


Hope it helps! wont say no to some rep.

If its a case of watching on your PC - use DivX player (just google it).

If its a case of watching on your tv, you need a DivX player (search the forum for some cheap bargains).

If your PC has a TV out graphic card then you could connect it to TV (usually S-Video) but location and wires usually a hassle, Cheaper to buy a DVD player or recorder with Divx playback or a modded X-box etc. if through TV (or even a media player, basically a portable hard drive that plays back DIVX files through TV without need for DVDs, Maplins etc. have these)

Your graphic card will usually have a s video out connector usually round. Check yor hardware under system informtion and check to see what graphic adapter (card) you have then Google it to see what it has if you are not sure

Just network your 360 to the PC, then use TVersity...

That's what I do, works perfectly.

Same here - the only tricky part is that it recommends you have a good CPU.

Still, far better than a standalone player - it'll play pretty much anything I throw at it. Also means I dont need to load up my xbox with mp3's

ps is anyone selling a xbox 1?


they are £40 in gamestation and you get to pick 4 games with it too, if you search for xbox soft modding on google its pretty straight forward. ive done it and its so much easier than converting burning stuff off and then watching it, you can just watch it through the xbox
#15
do u have to have it connected to the pc still for the xbox to watch divx?

bumppp

A modded xbox can play all video, audio and image formats on your TV. It can stream them, you can transfer them to the Xbox hard drive or you can dump them on a disc and it will play from the DVD tray.

High definition video is not really an option as the CPU isn't fast enough to process the amount of info required. It either locks the box up or is so jagged as to be utterly unwatchable.

I bought and hard modded(modchip) mine about 3 or 4 years ago - It's one of those things that I cannot do without - it works flawlessly, in every way.

If you saw one you'd be suprised how much better it is to any other form of media player.
