    Hi all. Having some difficulty with XviD files - they don't play anamorphically and for some reason AC3 soundtracks don't play either.

    The manual seems to indicate this might be a non-starter as it refers only to MP3 audio in relation to DivX but surely theres a way to get round this?

    Anyone have any ideas, on either front?

    Cheers in advance...

    Check out www.afterdawn.com and search for Divx then Xvid there is a difference between the 2 it might be you need to download an Xvid codec from afterdawn. Also go to www.divx.com and download the converter to play on your disc's on your system. Remember divx is data file so you can burn onto cd-rw's.:thumbsup:

    This is one of the problems with standalones capable of playing XViD & DiVX, the codec development is constant (certainly in the case of open source XViD) and any advancements may render the player incompatible with current versions.

    Also, codec enhancements such as Quarter Pixel (Q-Pel) and Global Motion Control (GMC) are known to make cause playback problems with standalones.

    You'd be far better off with a chipped or soft-modified xbox running Xbox Media Center, mine's played everything I've thrown at it. :)
