    a mates been onto me about a player that does as below. Does it make sense and is it worth paying much extra for ???

    they play divx and xvid files i used to dl divx/xvid files off the net...then go through the tedious task of decompressing the audio..then encoiding the file to mpeg2..and then authoring to dvd...takes about 6-7 hrs per movie and u lose quality..now just burn straight to a cheap disk;as is and watch!

    Never used any standalone players that support Divx.. but here are links to to companies making players that support the format:

    www.northq.com
    and
    www.kiss-technology.com

    Can't say much about the picture quality on DVD-films though.. never used one.. try searching for reviews on the net.. there's bound to be a few.

    Sorry.. don't know any retailers in UK.. live in Sweden.
    But I'm sure you'll find one if you search around the net a bit

    Try contacting NorthQ and ask if they have a distributor for their drives in the UK. Worth a shot.
