have you tried burning it to cd / dvd as it is and playing it?
#2
if it doesn't try conversion software like:

or

i think it takes a long time though to convert files.

mrs z how come your avvy is a little purple? did you change it?

you need to convert it in to a DVD which takes a while if you have a **** pc...

You can convert it, but you're probably better off just buying a new DVD player, one that can actually play avi files by itself. It's so much faster to put six or seven downloaded movies directly on to a single DVDR than to go through the hassle of converting and burning each one individually. Better video and sound quality, too.

I didn't try as I didn't want to waste a dvd if it doesn't work :thinking:

I tried to 'feminise' it a bit as I am fed up of being called 'mate' :giggle: - you'd think my name would be enough :roll:

Will have a go, thanks

AVI-playing DVD players have been out for ages. I bought mine about four years ago, only £20 from Lidl.

Aah, my MIL had my old Toshiba player (about 9 years old now) and her upstairs one is just a cheapy Sainsbury's one I think :thumbsup:

Thank you, as I said it's not for me it's for my MIL, just gave her a posh coffee maker for her wedding present yesterday, maybe should have got her a DVD player instead!

You need to find out if your dvd player supports either mpeg4/divx/xvid - it might say it on the side.

If it doesn't, no amount of conversion, other than making it into a dvd (pointless) will work.

Edit - Tesco sell a Tecknika branded one for just over 17 quid that plays them.

Yep. As many AVI files as you can put on a disc, basically. I've got single DVDRs with whole TV show seasons on them.
